How High Will Turnout Be Tomorrow?
MySpace have just emailed me to tell me of a poll of their users in which 15% of those polled said they were not intending to vote tomorrow, but because of the expenses scandal would now do so. This fits in with my general view that turnout tomorrow is going to be far higher than usual. Rather than stay at home and say "a plague on all your houses" I suspect people are going to turn out in high numbers and give politicians from the main parties a good kicking. I think turnout could be well above 50%, which would be unheard of for a European election.
