The Glasgow reweighting method is evaluated for SU(2) lattice gauge theory at nonzero \mu and finite T. We establish that the ' overlap problem' of SU(3) measurements, in which the transition points determined from thermodynamic observables have an unphysical dependence on the value of \mu used in the reweighting persists for SU(2). By combining the information from different lattice ensembles we alleviate sampling bias in the fugacity expansion, and identify the Lee-Yang zeros associated with
