A new poll in the Sunday Times has the Conservative lead down to 2%. Tory blogger Tim Montgomerie draws conclusions:
One of the big lessons of the last week is that there is no evidence that attacks on Brown's character and style of politics have any traction. The bullying and 'forces of hell' episodes excited Westminster but do not appear to have done Brown one scrap of damage.
Of course, if he'd been reading Marbury he would have seen this (not) coming.
Ps "Gordon Brown on course to win election" is a headline you could have made a lot of money by betting against in the last year.
