Did Dave/Nick set expectations that were too high?
We got the Ipsos-MORI numbers yesterday but this chart from the firm is worth looking at for the way it illustrates the trend.
On every measure voters have become disillusioned with the coalition and I wonder if part of the problem was that there were so much hope for it on its creation.
Looking back the deal in May 2010 was over-sold. There was too much big rhetoric for something that was really transactional.
Maybe if there hadn’t been all that talk of a “new politics” then voters would have taken a more realistic view.
