Is it weighting which influences the polls?

Above is todays YOU GOV POLL

It seems in areas where there has been a high response for what party those numbers are then inflated by an increase of weighting. age 18-24 goes up by 50% in a section high for one party but only by less than 5% in a section which has a different mix of voters. Even though it is well known that older voters are more likely to vote than younger ones.

I just think it is curious, what are your thoughts?
