UK Election Polls - Why They Were Probably Right!
Election night. The one time every 5 or so years that your friends and family begin to have some inkling of what it is you do for a living. With almost every poll aligning on the evening before, the UK expected a dead heat in the vote share and around 274 seats for the Conservatives, versus 271 for Labour. But 24 hours later, an exit poll and the results themselves show that the Conservatives have returned 331 to Labour’s 232. An astonishing departure from the previous data!
