Team Huhne's Phone Canvass Shows They Are Close, But No Cigar;
We have another piece of the puzzle this morning in the form of Chris Huhne's canvass returns.
With no mention of second preferences, Huhne's campaign team say in the Independent today "We think overall we are one or two points in front."
Menzies' campaign say in the same article that their canvas returns show they are ahead of Huhne and would gain up to 60 per cent of the second-preference votes of people voting for Simon Hughes (blogged here yesterday). If Huhne and Campbell's teams are even fairly accurate then assuming Hughes gets at least 20% of the vote. Ming has this won.
