Swing Update

Today’s swing figure:

» 2.54% swing to the Conservatives «

One new poll for the magic formula today: YouGov/Torygraph has the standings at 36/33, exactly the same as the last YouGov poll. The Times tracker, which isn’t included in the magic formula, has them at 42/29, which is seriously disturbing, as it represents a swing of similar magnitude but to Labour, giving them a democratically unhealthy majority of 178. The Lib Dems are still doing quite well throughout poll land, so I’d be quite worried if I were Oliver Letwin. Only two more swing updates to go before the big day, so not much more to go. As a postal voter, I’ve already made my mark. I just hope that David Borrow doesn’t win my seat again, because he’s never responded positively to any of my requests, and he’s very much a career politician. That’s one very good reason to boot him out while we can. So, people of the South Ribble constituency, do what you must!
