Lynton Crosby’s call to ban opinion polls should fall on deaf ears.

The Conservative Government should not be too quick to act on Lynton Crosby’s call for opinion polls to be banned in the last few weeks of election campaigns, despite the false picture they presented during the recent General Election campaign.

It was the pollsters’ prediction of a minority Labour administration propped up by the Scottish Nationalists that drove many electors to vote Conservative. They ignored the call to “vote with their hearts”; they did the opposite and voted with their heads.
