The softness debate

There has been much talk lately of the `Clegg bubble` and how it might `burst` within a week. The argument goes that the new LD vote (ie the 22% +) might be ephemeral and could disappear.

Fine. Perhaps though one of the reasons for the extra performance is that LABOUR and TORY totals also have a similar group of voters. Commentators seem to identify all Labour and Tory votes as two firm blocks and a lot of the LD vote as fickle. That may have been true in the past – it doesn’t mean it is true now.

The Lib Dems have a far stronger core vote than years ago.

The Lib Dems have done the intellectual hard graft and have robust policies
