A caller calls a report that found more than 100 constituencies that voted leave now want to remain in the European Union "a load of rubbish".
This caller was not convinced by a report that found more than 100 Westminster constituencies that originally voted to leave the European Union would now change their vote to remain.
David said that the number of people surveyed for the report did not best represent those who voted leave.
He told Andrew Castle: "It's a load of rubbish.
"It's an absolute load of nonsense."
David's complaint was directed at the findings of a report in the Observer newspaper, where researchers at a consumer analytics company found that more than 100 Westminster constituencies that voted to leave the European Union would now vote in favour of remaining.
The research firm modelled two YouGov polls of more than 15,000 people that were conducted before and after Theresa May's Chequers deal in early July.
Comissioned by the pro-EU group Best for Britain, the report also used censor data and information from the Office for National Statistics.
