Lib Dems lauded

Why do pollsters so consistently underestimate the actual Liberal Democrat vote? One probable reason is that your Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament keeps you informed all year, every year. And that does not pass unnoticed. Liberal Democrats have the reputation of giving good value for your vote. They work hard, and campaign effectively on local issues while making sure national policies are as just a good as they can achieve.

Coalitions are notoriously hard on the junior partner. Yet Liberal Democrats put country before party interest, and our recovering economy does them huge credit. I am confident many thoughtful voters will recognise that sacrifice, and reward the Liberal Democrats with their votes on Thursday.
