In the run up to the election, several polling organisations will carry out public opinion polling in regards to voting intentions. Results of such polls are displayed below. The figures in the right hand side columns show extrapolations from the raw data contained in the pdf files, and in several cases the percentages are not directly referable to that data.

Famous quotes containing the words polls and/or opinion:
“The total collapse of the public opinion polls shows that this country is in good health. A country that developed an airtight system of finding out in advance what was in peoples minds would be uninhabitable.”
—E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
“The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”
—John Stuart Mill (18061873)
