the trigger for the Toriesâ€™ loss of support seems to have been the budget delivered by George Osborne on 21 March, or perhaps the â€œomnishamblesâ€ of U-turns and clarifications that followed it……
Gideon Skinner of Ipsos-Mori concludes
2012 seems unlikely to go down in the history books as aÂ great political turning point. But it may turn out to be theÂ first crack in the dam or, alternatively, be seen as the pointÂ when the coalition might have imploded, yet didnâ€™t. With theÂ next election probably more than two years away, much canÂ yet change, not least in the economic situation which is soÂ important to the political outcome.
