News of an opinion poll and a 'snap' poll emerge this evening.
According to Tweetminster: Populus/Times: LAB 38% (+1), CON 37% (-2), LDEM 15% (+1).
According to Sam Coates on Twitter: Populus poll for The Times: Labour 38 (+1%), C 37% (-2%) LDem 15%(+1). First time Labour in the lead in a Populus poll since Nov 2007.
According to House of Twits: Should Nadine Dorries be censured for making misleading statements on her blog? Result: Yes: 26; No: 4; Undecided: 1.
And the burning question is that of those surveyed, how many actually know the arguments for and against the policies of the Conservatives and Labour? How many believe Dorries has 'done wrong' when compared with the 'wrongdoing' of Kerry McCarthy?
That is not to decry the pollsters nor the intellectual level of those surveyed. It is, however, to decry the lack of our political elite and the media to explain the relevant, true and 'unspun' facts to the electorate.
