You Gov and the Party Presidency

There has been an unexpected development in the campaign for the Party Presidency in the shape of a poll seeking views on the contest and the contenders.

Curious, because nominations don't close for three months, and more so because sources close to both camps have either denied involvement (me for Ros) or indicated how unlikely it would be (a former staffer for Lembit).

Polling doesn't come cheap, although YouGov are cheaper than most, if not all, of the rivals. Oh well, I'm sure that whoever it is has their reasons...

My guess is that it is an MP testing the water/on a vanity trip.

I was polled. It also asked me to write in the names of any other people who I might consider as a possible future President.

That doesn't exactly narrow it down then ....
