YouGov's poll predictions for the European Parliament elections were closer to the actual results than any other pollster's

The full European election results were released on Monday, providing an opportunity to compare the final polls released by various pollsters to the actual result.

YouGov's average error, 1.4 points, was, by some margin, the lowest of all the pollsters.

YouGov was the only company to get the top two, UKIP and Labour, right to within 1 point; YouGov was the only company to get all parties right to within 2 points; YouGov was the only company to rank all five parties in the right order (with Greens coming 4th and Lib Dems coming 5th).
