I know, I know: Never ever, ever over-interpret an opinion poll but all things and trends considered I’ll try a prediction:
Lars Løkke is a bit of a gambler and his electoral luck relies on the election coming as late as possible given the state of the economy. Theoretically, he could wait until 13 November 2011 – which is a Sunday, though, and traditionally elections are held on Tuesdays or, alternatively, Thursdays or Wednesdays.
So, I’ll risk a bet and predict that the next general election in Denmark will be held on
… drum-roll …
Tuesday 8 November 2011!
