He didn't do it for the fun of it - there must be a nefarious political reason.
It's a funny thing - all the other parties are saying - Vote for us to keep the Tories out.
They must all be very worried.

Probably, the Tories would just of sat on it if there was no perceived benefit to their cause.

So can anyone come up with a plausible benefit to the Tory party by publishing this poll.?
Apart from wanting as many other smaller parties to dilute the opposition.
Although all the others are Tory bashing at the moment It is inconceivable that in a hung parliament you could have a coalition of Labour, Lib Dem, Scot Nat, UKIP, Green, George Galloway and Tommy Sheridan? to provide a majority - there are too many irons in the fire to make that workable.

Whilst the polls have presented a similar picture over the last few months I wonder if the electorate in Scotland may be influenced by the 'round ' of TV debates closer to the GM ? (USA Style)

It goes without saying that the TV debates had a major influence on the referendum and there was a lot of 'moving votes' in the last few weeks

Could this happen again ?

Polls suggest an alliance of Labour and the SNP would produce an overall majority with no requirement for any other party to be involved.

Could they be bedfellows?

It has been suggested that the SNP would support Labour on a 'confidence and supply' basis rather than in a formal coalition.
