UK election 2017: Can people trust the polls?

In recent years, the majority of pollsters have incorrectly predicted the results from a number of major votes, including the 2015 general election in the UK, the EU referendum and the US election in 2016. With the UK set to head to the voting booths on 8 June for another general election, IBTimes UK spoke with pollster Matt Singh about why the polls got it so wrong last time, and how to read them more accurately. Singh founded Number Cruncher Politics, one of the only pollsters to correctly predict a Conservative Party majority in 2015. Apr 25, 2017
