The electorate in IDS's seat has shrunk, in Raab's risen by 246 (rounded to 0%) and in Johnson's risen by 433 (rounded to 1% growth). I think all of these are going to survive, sadly.
A couple of weather related factors I heard today; cold weather was a reason identified by pollsters to explain why the NHS has risen as a main issue. And the Tories are concerned wankers who don’t usually vote but turned out for Leave in 2016 aren’t going to be arsed to do it again in this weather as they told you once. In other words they couldn’t give a toss about Brexit enough to fight for it and still see foreigners in the high street and the mosque open so what’s the point?Arrowhead wrote: ↑Tue Dec 10, 2019 12:17 pmTrue. I suppose I'm making some assumptions as to the likely demographics of the postal voters, and the need for generally younger, Remain-y voters to get out the door and offset them. At least the 6.1 million voters who signed the "Revoke" e-petition last April should be hyper-motivated and can be relied upon to venture out, whatever the conditions.
You see I think it does, in an election no one wanted in my view (What ever people say on Yougov) at a time no one wanted it. I don't think Johnson is driving people to the polls (Well not people who will vote for him).youngian wrote: ↑Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:34 amNot sure what the possible impact on the election outcome would be, but probably not great for Labour on a day where turnout/voter enthusiasm will be absolutely key.
Doesn't that work both ways? Do you hate Corbyn/Johnson enough to brave the rain and cold? I certainly do (Johnson that is).
