Matt Singh is a leading election and opinion polling analyst and founder of the website Number Cruncher Politics, a non-partisan UK Polling and psephology site. Matt is arguably best known for his for his analysis on the 2015 General Election where he correctly predicted the opinion polling failure and Conservative victory.
Since then, his reputation as one of the UK’s top polling analysts has gone from strength to strength. In an interview with Bloomberg Television during the Labour Party leadership contest in August 2015, Matt dismissed suggestions that polls were overstating support for eventual winner Jeremy Corbyn and suggested that they could even be understating it. In the event, Corbyn polled 59.5% of the vote, compared with the final YouGov poll of 57%.
