It must be true, it was in the paper

Chris is winning! No – Ming is winning! Bloody hell – just count the votes already.

Edit: Some interesting commentary at suggests that neither paper (but particularly the Graun) took much care to check the people they were polling were party members and therefore entitled to vote. There’s also some suggestion that it would have been easy for people to get themselves polled multiple times, although no evidence that anyone actually did so.
