YOUGOV WEIGHTING AND THEIR POLLS  <<< Follow the link if you would like to join the YOUGOV panel and have your opinions heard

Now it is very difficult to put into 140 characters what you are trying to show, but basically when Labour had a 7% lead in the polls the weighting. YOUGOV used a weighting that the 632 Labour respondents were weighted down to 624,and Conservatives were weighted up from 516 to 523 

But in the one in which the Conservatives were 2pts ahead the 625 Labour voters were weighted down to 588. Where as the Conservative numbers were increased from 561 respondents up to 627

Tories figure boosted by 10% Labour figure lowered by 5%in the 2nd poll where as the first poll they marginally moved.

Did this have a baring on the result of the poll?

Poll from today tories 2 pts ahead

Poll with Labour 7pts ahead
