General Election 2010 - Rural Votes

The author of this article is not a fan of horse racing but it is quite interesting that Lib Dem are using horse racing analogy to target rural votes . Imbued with new confidence from the surge they enjoyed in opinion polls after the first TV debate where their leader Nick Clegg is said to have won, Lib Dems are now on the all out offensive to capture rural votes by targeting Labour members they think could easily be converted to voting for them at constituencies where they feel Labour voters can easily be persuaded to vote for them to keep the Conservatives out.

One thing that is true in the LibDems literature is the fact that most Labour support tends to be in the cities rather than the countryside as most rural constituencies tends to elect a Conservative or Liberal MP.
