Tories are challengers to Clarke in Norwich South: Poll

A new set of opinion polls has confirmed that the Tories are back to being the real alternative to Charles Clarke in Norwich South. Martin Baxter's Electoral Calculus, an extremely well respected organisation that averages out polling information, puts Clarke at 33% (down 4%), the Conservatives at 27% (up 5%), the LibDems at 24% (down 5%) and the Greens at 14% (up 7%). That roughly matches what we are seeing on the doorsteps at the moment. However, you might expect Mr Clarke to do better now he has more time to spend in Norwich. The LibDems, however, are clearly having a tougher time of it.
