The popularity will translate into votes, just not enough in any one constituency to do any good.
The latest polls disagree; Cleggy boy's mob have moved up from a distant third to second in two polls and a close third in another. The projection at this level was another 40 seats for the Lib Dems and Labour the biggest party. I think it will get much worse for the two older parties - the next debate is about foreign policy and the Lib Dems are the only party that opposed the recent wars, which is currently a very popular stance. I expect them to reach even giddier heights after the next debate.
It is definitely a three horse race, and two of them are already looking like tired old nags.
