The polls have shot up for the Lib Dems, and despite what the naysayers have said, mainly seem to be eating into the Tory vote, not Labour.

A couple of polls have even put them in first place, which is... well... frankly staggering. I didn't think I'd see the day.

Unfortunately, due to vote distribution, the jump in percentage of vote for the Lib Dems doesn't give them a proportional increase in seats... instead, Labour looks like it will win out at the current vote share. (It'll still be a hung parliament, of course; that's looking like a virtual certainty now).

But if the Lib Dems could shoot up from around 20% to almost 30%, how much more could they do?

I notice there's a a Facebook group called We got Rage Against the Machine to #1, we can get the Lib Dems into office, which now has over 85,000 members. Even if it is ultimately unsuccessful, it's making me feel a little bit fuzzy inside.   8^)

Bet Gord and Dave are now feeling stupid about having railed on about "voter apathy" in today's youth...
