The latest quarterly update to PollBase, my database of British voting intention opinion polls since 1943 is now up, covering the really rather quiet second quarter of 2017…
Points to note about this update:
- Alas, Norstat’s polls for the Express did not follow the industry standards for transparency, and despite several requests to both pollster and newspaper, no data tables have been supplied. As a result, some data is missing. If you have a copy of the data tables or further information about them, please do let me know.
- A limited amount of detailed data for general election polls has not yet been chased up. It will be added in due course but all the voting intention polls should be in there.
- Finally, a reminder that the general election vote shares given are for Great Britain, matching with how polls are usually conducted. (In the rare cases of a poll being for the UK, either the Great Britain only figures are included or a warning note.)

I release a new edition of PollBase once a quarter, both adding in the new national voting intention polls from the last quarter and also improving the older data, such as filling in gaps and making some of the columns clearer.
