Have you seen the story today in the Observer today from Ned Temko and Svetlana Graudt?
"Frontrunners take Lib Dem battle to a photo-finish
Observer survey shows Hughes a distant third"
Statistically it isn't worth a bag of beans. They have simply asked Lib Dem constituency chairs . And not even all the chairs, just the 63 with Lib Dem MPs. And they only got 46 replies:
HUGHES - 8
HUHNE - 18
CAMPBELL - 19
NOT SURE, EITHER HUHNE OR CAMPBELL -1
NO RESPONSE - 17
However it does illustrate one point. Ming has the declared support of 31 Lib Dem MPs. But it seems likely that many of those MPs have constituency chairs who are voting for Chris.
Anyway, this might be my last post about the leadership election until we get the result. Time to move on to other things...
