...it is an exciting race, a defining moment, the outcome is by no means apparent ...
..the polls may be missing out this time:
Voting Gordon may well be a socially embarrassing intention that is not admitted [remember when this was true for the Ts]
Surge of late registration by younger citizens and associated Gerry Manders
Large numbers of people still undecided, or not firmly committed
Possible that there will be a very high turnout
The differences between the main parties are within or close to the margin of error
Even if the polls are near enough, the outcome in terms of seats is still guesswork
Exit polling will not help much this time, the share of vote is not at all a good guide to the number of seats
Labour are steaming down the home straight - the story not being addressed in the media is their MOMENTUM
...an unmissable night eh?
