It's the economy, stupid
While David Cameron and his chums John Gummer and Zac Goldsmith spent the day switching off Tory voters in droves with his eccentric environmental wheezes, Gordon Brown has established an extraordinary lead on the economy, according to Populus. If the economy were to face problems, 61% of voters - including a quarter of Tories and two thirds of Liberal Democrats - would want Gordon in charge rather than Cameron and George Osborne. Isn't that what we mean by a 'wellbeing economy' in the words of the new flat earther's handbook (pdf)?
