Chris Huhne Pulls Ahead in YouGov Poll
YouGov poll result: Chris Huhne: 38%: Campbell 34%: Hughes 27%. When Hughes is eliminated it splits Huhne 52% to Campbell 48%. A slight word of caution is the sample size, which was 401 LibDem members. But remember, YouGov called the Tory result within 1%. But effectively this means it's all to play for, but the Big Mo is certainly with Huhne. This is why I scored Ming Campbell on Sky News so low, at 1 out of 5. Playing safe is a dodgy tactic in a leadership contest. You've got to surpass expectations. Believe me, I know! I wish I had put money on Huhne when I tipped him in December!
