Hi folks. Starting a bit early but there's a lot of questions lined up for me already. I can't promise I can answer all the questions but I'll get through as many as I can. Go here goes:

Q: How can you gauge an accurate view of the population from a survey of 5,054 ?

Five thousand people might not sound a lot but it is actually a very large sample. Most opinion polls are based on just 1,000 people. In addition, the 5,000 were weighted to be an accurate make up of English society. The survey was conducted by Populus, one of the most respected polling organisations in the UK.
