Should we follow the old American “rule”
There’s an old adage about US presidential elections which has been magnified since TV debates started in 1960 – the tallest contender generally ends up winning the election
I wonder whether the affect could be happening here. Did Clegg’s stature give him an edge last Thursday night and might that be a good pointer to May 6th?
Looking forward to the next debate Thursday PaddyPower has a tricast market – you forecast the order in the which the post-debate polling will rate them. If you think it will be the same again it’s 11/8 against Clegg/Cameron/Brown. If you think that Cameron will pip Clegg then it’s 15/8 against Cameron/Clegg/Brown.
