Until the general election, the Opinium / Observer poll will now be published once a week instead of once a fortnight. We have also made some slight changes to our methodology, details of which can be found here.

Opinium Research carried out an online survey of 1,969 GB adults aged 18+ from 10th to 12th February 2015. Results have been weighted to nationally representative criteria.
