The votes of the Apollo jury...
by Oxonian

You could be forgiven for thinking, on occasion, that the Apollo Project is firmly behind Ming for leader. In fact the voting intentions of this small sub-set of the Lib Dem online fraternity are a lot more interesting than that.

Since various polls of membership are stirring up all sorts of controversy at the moment at, and small sample sizes don't seem to be a hindrance, here's the votes of the Apollo jury:

First prefs:
Chris Huhne - 12
Ming Campbell - 10
Simon Hughes - 1
Undecided - 2

Reallocating Simon leaves Chris Huhne as the winner, by the narrowest of margins.

The final result is pretty close to today's YouGov poll, but where are all those Simon voters...?

    Sounds like we should get Paddy Ashdown to join the Apollo Project to even things up a bit. :-)

    Actually, it could be closer.

    If it was 12-11 with the one Hughes vote to transfer, then it would go 12-12 but Huhne would win on count-back of first preferences.

"What is Liberalism?: I should say it means the acknowledgment in practical life of the truth that men are best governed who govern themselves; that the general sense of mankind, if left alone, will make for righteousness; that artificial privileges and restraints upon freedom, so far as they are not required in the interests of the community, are hurtful; and that the laws, while, of course, they cannot equalise conditions, can at least avoid aggravating inequalities, and ought to have for their object the securing to every man the best chance he can have of a good and useful life." C-B.


The Apollo Project seeks to put together new ideas on policies and campaigning to help broaden the appeal and enhance the impact of the Liberal Democrats.
