ELECTION 2017: Are UK pollsters headed for another embarrassing election?

Following the political surprises of 2015 and 2016, there has been much reflection and debate on the accuracy of the polls in the run-up to the impending snap-election of 2017.

ELECTION 2017: Fact Check - if 30% more people under 25 vote, could the Conservatives lose the election?

An article on The Independent is being widely shared on social media suggesting that a 30% increase in turnout among 18 to 24-year-olds would make the election of a majority Conservative government on June 8 rather unlikely.

When contacted by The Conversation, Firth said that the calculations made in The Independent article reflected his own.
