Deltapoll is a comparative newcomer, so new that their website is still a work in progress!

That doesn't mean their methodology is inherently dodgy, but they don't have a track record in political polling such as the likes of Comres, Ipsos Mori, YouGov or TNS. But as usual the more significant factor is who commissioned the poll, what the questions were, and how they were asked.

Those caveats apply to all polling / surveys.
