Are opinion polls worth it?

The latest poll shows some surprising results!
If the poll is anything to go by...unexpected parties have gained ground! However... because of the ways that votes are counted...this might not be enough
When I go to "cast" my vote...I thought it counted as one vote...recently...I have found out that in certain areas one vote cast does not equal one....but a fraction of one?
This is no way to encourage people to vote..although some people will not access this source...and not know how ineffectual their vote is!
one person voting should equal one positive vote....for what ever party
Until this problem is ironed out I can't see the government in this country being truly representative of the electorate!

First past the post is not the way it should be - Bring on the Single Transferable Vote!
