A third poll and Samantha Cameron

Buried at the bottom of the usual Mail on Sunday nonsense are the details of a third poll showing aTory lead of just 2%.  What is interesting about this poll is that 45% think a hung parliament will damage the economy and 34% say that the Tories do not have a clear message.  What is also clear from the poll is that the Ashcroft effect may not be working its magic in the marginal seats, which is rather obvious if the UNS is only 2.5%.

As an aside, who cares how Samantha Cameron voted in 1997.  What she does in the privacy of the polling booth is entirely up to her, although you could argue that it proves Tony Blair was rather effective in not only capturing the centre ground but also traditional Tory voters.
