Oranges squeezed 'till the pips squeak'

Lots of OP's conducted in the last few days.

This one, from NTN television, predicts that in the event of fresh VR elections, the results would be:
PoR 38%
BYuT 16%
NSNU 7.5%
Socialists 2.6%
Communists 2.1%

PoR would have an absolute majority - Yanukovych must be a 'happy bunny' at the moment.

This adds up to only 71.5% - not much of a poll.

Consider that in the last election, Yanuk and the communists lost 1/3 of their support from the Orange election.

Why would there be such a reversal.

These polls mean nothing.
