  1. Metron analysis has no credibility. Look at the record of previous polls conducted by Metron analysis versus actual election results. A Metron analysis poll released on May 3, 2014 gave Golden Dawn 4.3% support. A mere 22 days later on May 25, 2014, Golden Dawn scored 9.4% at the EU parliamentary elections. On May 3, 2014 Metron analysis gave “To Potami” 7.8%, on May 25th, 2014, To Potami scored 6.6% at the EU elections.
