ComRes Election Poem

ComRes have for some reason commissioned a special election poem:

I PREFER DEMOCRACY
 
You can run a land with armies
You can rule a sea with boats
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with votes.
 
You can run a land with bullets
You can crush dissent with sticks 
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with ticks.
 
You can run a land with slogans
You can dominate with voice  
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with choice.
 
You can run a land with torture
You can keep control with fights
But I prefer democracy
Where you run a land with rights.
 
You can run a land with freedom
You can find a people’s heart
But if this is democracy
You have to play your part.
 
You can run a land that dances
You can run a land that rocks
By voting for democracy
With your cross inside a box.
 
Steve Turner 2015

Kill Guido now.

Labour Smashed in Ipsos MORI Drill Down

The PM’s approval rating is on the up. According the Standard’s polling:

“The percentage who are satisfied with his performance has jumped from 39 to 46 in two weeks, giving him his best net rating since 2012, at -2, which is markedly better than his rivals.Mr Clegg’s net score has been boosted by 10 points to -21, while Mr Miliband has stayed level at -19.  Mr Farage is down a point to -25.”

And Labour get smashed in the other top jobs too:
  • Cameron/Miliband 52 to 31.
  • Osborne/Balls 47 to 34.
  • May/Cooper 45 to 36.
  • Clegg/Harman 42 to 39.
Only Dougie Alexander beats Philip Hammond, but he’s unlikely to even have a seat next week…

Ashcroft: Farage and Clegg Behind

Following the ICM poll putting the Tories three points ahead, now Ashcroft gives them a lead of six:

Labour lead by one with YouGov and three with Populus today.

Meanwhile the Ashcroft focus group was asked who would play each party leader in a film of their life:

Nicola Sturgeon: Dame Helen Mirren

Jim Murphy: Peter Capaldi, Jim Carrey or Ewan McGregor

Ruth Davidson: Sue Perkins

David Cameron: Hugh Grant or Colin Firth

Ed Miliband: Woody Allen
