MAY 2017 - PRE WESTMINSTER ELECTION: POLL 2 (of 3) 
NI OPINION PANEL 'TRACKER' POLL REPORT

LucidTalk run, and have been running, regular Northern Ireland (NI) Opinion Panel 'Tracker Polls' every 2-3 months to constantly gauge and estimate NI public opinion on a wide range of issues e.g. politics, business, consumer, lifestyle etc. Here we present the report from our May 2017 NI-Wide Opinion Panel Tracker Poll - this is the second of our three pre NI Westminster Election NI Opinion Panel 'Tracker' polls researching NI representative opinions and views during the build-up to the NI Westminster Election on 8th June 2017. For these polls we researched voting intention, election issues, media impact, a border poll, and an Irish Language Act.

The polls are regular 'Tracker' polls of the established LT Northern Ireland Opinion Panel (now nearly 8,000 members). The LucidTalk Opinion Panel consists of Northern Ireland residents (age 18+) and is balanced by gender, age-group, area of residence, and community background, in order to be demographically representative of Northern Ireland. For this May 2017 poll-project our NI-Wide and representative Opinion Panel was targeted, and invited to participate, 3,341 full responses were received and 2,080 responses were used to determine the final results (researched to be a robust and accurate sample of NI opinion).

NI OPINION PANEL - Pre-Westminster Election Poll 2 (May 2017)

Methodology:
Polling was carried out by Belfast based polling and market research company LucidTalk. The project was carried out online for a period of 60 Hours from 11am 15th May 2017 to 11pm 17th May 2017 (60 Hours). The project targeted the established LucidTalk NI-Wide Opinion Panel (7,886 members) which is balanced by gender, age-group, area of residence, and community background, in order to be demographically representative of Northern Ireland(NI). 3,341 full responses were received and a data auditing process ensured all completed poll-surveys were genuine 'one-person, one-vote' responses, and also to ensure a robust NI representative sample of opinion. This resulted in 2,080 responses being considered in terms of the final results, and that the 2,080 responses received and used were a demographically representative sample of Northern Ireland - producing results that were representative of NI Opinion to within an error of +/-3%.
