Today's poll

Today's Populus poll:

CON 39%
LAB 29%
LD 18%

suggests there is still cause for hope for Labour supporters. This is one of the lowest leads reported for ages, takes the Tories below the psychologically important 40% barrier, and on a uniform swing only produces a Tory majority of 12.

What about Cameron's delusion that he is going to ride into No.10 on the back of a 1997-style landslide?

If he wins, it will be with no mandate.

If he wins he wins Silent Hunter - a miss is as good as a mile.

Anything to rid the country of these horrible people I'll go for.

The sad part is decent people still support the unsupportable in this government and real Labour MP's like Frank Field are smeared and sidelined.

Wouldn't bank on it not being a '97 landslide either - when Blair won it was Tory voters going Labour. This time the collapse of the Labour vote will be *massive* and Cameron will benefit.

Working class voters are (rightly) sick of the way Labour has treated them and won't vote.

Middle class voters, like Luke and other readers of the blogs are in the main Tory. (Obviously not this blog but you get the point)

The Tories, instead of switching to Labour, are (rightly) sick of the control freak, high tax civil liberty destroying US loving tendencies of this government and will actively vote them out.

A lot of my English friends in both Wales and Scotland, traditional Labour strongholds, are going to go nationalist to get Labour out.

The goodwill has gone for Labour - for me watching Tony Blair being stabbed in the back by Brown and his cronies was too much.
