- Candidate who was doomed last week now triumphant
- Candidate who was reshaping politics last week now flash in pan
- Opinion polls fallible
- Other 87 candidates still confident, forgettable, insincere, gesticulating, weird, grumpy, dopey and sleepy
I’m going to hold off blogging about the US elections until they actually have a pair of candidates. Then I’m going to hope the Democrat wins. That may be quite a short blog post.
In the meantime, there seems to be a laughably high ratio of interpretation to information.
It’s like the first hour or so of the BBC election specials, where Dimbleby, Paxman, Snow, Curtice and assorted party hacks analyse polls, rumours, other media reports, each other and thin air. Only it lasts weeks.
