Welcome to Poll of Polls - pollofpolls.eu
Welcome to Poll of Polls dot EU, the place for aggregated polling data for the upcoming elections in the European Union.
We cover all national elections in the EU and so far in 2017 and 2018 the polls and especially the aggregated and the weighted average has proven to be an accurately calibrated compass for the actual election results. We will keep on updating the polls and cover also the elections this year including the much anticipated Italian election and the Hungarian parliamentary election.
Why we started PoP. The general reputation of polls took some bad hits in 2016, although - as far as we are concerned - the polls did a pretty good job on average. Rather the problem stems from cherry picking and we don't mean the healthy kind of a lot of vitamins. Journalists and in the consequence the public tend to look at one recent poll and draw conclusions about the state of the race in the run-up to an election. But this can be dangerously misleading since the individual poll could be an outlier, have a small sample size with a large margin of error, the polling firm's methodology could cause a biasing house effect for certain parties and so on and so forth. Thus, we want to offer you a comprehensive collection of polls with charts that help you interpret the state of the race.
2017 included the polls for the Dutch Election on 15th of March, the French Presidential election, its run-off and the French legislative election between April and June, the British general election (snap election) on the 6th of June, the German federal election in September, the Austrian legislative election on the 15th and the Czech legislative election on the 20th and 21st of October. As mentioned, you can find the most recent polls for all these countries on the respective country pages with up-do-date poll-aggregations.
