Abstract Internet polls based on volunteer panels have quickly captured a significant slice of the UK polling market, based in large part on success at predicting the outcome of recent elections. However, opinion research is most usually conducted on a wide range of issues that cannot be measured against an election outcome and are only loosely linked to voting behaviour. This paper compares the results obtained from a representative sample of people interviewed by telephone with the internet-accessible population, those willing to join an internet panel and those who actually respond online. Across a range of subjects similar results are obtained, but on others differences emerge that suggest online panels cannot reliably replicate results obtained by more traditional research methods.
