Introducing the new Times-YouGov leader ratings

May 6th, 2013

We were so swamped with reaction to the locals on Saturday that I missed what appears to be a new polling series from YouGov for the Times.

Rather than the weekly YouGov “like/dislike” “doing well/badly” ratings the Times questions askes whether people have a positive or negative view if the named leaders. I think this format is a much better guide and it an approach is used quite widely in the US. Let’s hope that the Time/YouGov continues with it.
