Anthony Wells of UKPolling Report emails me to tell me that he has asked Populus to disclose the poll referred to by Benedict Brogan in his blog.
He wrote” â€œTories say privately their internal Populus poll paints a completely different picture – the parties are level pegging and Mr Cameronâ€™s approval rating is climbing”.
Anthony’s view is that there is a requirement to disclose under the British Polling Council’s transparency rules.
Normally leaks of “private polls” don’t name the pollster. I’m writing this on my phone in a Eurotunnel train and am not in a position to support Anthony.
It will be interesting to see what transpires.
