Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

The polling in­dus­try has been warned to “get its house in or­der” if it wants to avoid de­mands for a ban on pub­lish­ing po­lit­i­cal polls dur­ing elec­tion cam­paigns.

The House of Lords Po­lit­i­cal Polling and Dig­i­tal Me­dia Com­mit­tee warned in­ac­cu­rate polling – com­bined with the “murky world” of on­line po­lit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions – posed an “in­sid­i­ous threat” to the UK’s demo­cratic sys­tem.
