Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Today’s swing figure:
» 2.64% swing to the Conservatives «
Guardian/Populus gives the Conservatives a bit more of a boost, at 37/34 – the closet poll we’ve had in a good while. Mr Howard is still nowhere near the levels he was when I started these daily updates – back then, he was nearing 5% – but he’s moving in the right direction. If this 2.64% swing were really to happen, then Mr Blair would still almost certainly have a three-figure majority, so it’s not hugely impressive at the moment. But we’ll see how this plays out over the next few days.
