By Estelle Shirbon LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's leading expert on elections said he was "none the wiser" on which polls, phone or online, were reaching more representative samples of the electorate ahead of a June 23 referendum on whether to remain in the European Union. John Curtice said the divergence between phone polls, which give the "In" camp a comfortable lead, and online polls, which are tighter and suggest "Out" could win, was likely due to differences between the samples they were able to recruit. In particular, Curtice probed a recent experiment by pollster YouGov which suggested that phone polls may be skewed towards "Remain" because their samples included too many graduates, who are more likely to want to stay in the EU.
