Wax and Wane

An article in The Observer claimed a poll showed “public trust plummets”. The Telegraph published an article about the lock-down. This article asserted the public was “increasingly supportive of a staggered exit”.

Both claims derive from the same poll by Opinium. Neither claim is accurate.

The Observer

Opinium conducted an internet panel poll between 21–23rd April 2020. The company sampled 2,005 UK adults, on behalf of The Observer.
