Federal political polling in 2014

Federal political polling in 2014

I regularly cover the political polls with a view to providing readers with an objective overview of what the different pollsters have found.

We have a database of all the national polls going back several years that I use to provide context to the stories.

This allows me to focus on the long-term trends and provide context to any individual poll finding.

The stories are complemented by our interactive 
Poll of Polls visualisations.
