It's quite alienating, and the opposite of what's needed to win this type of nuanced referendum where people recognise that abortion is a rather horrible idea, but also a necessary service to have.
Yeah neither side understands the median voter theory.

Must look into that. It could be subject to debate. Although fairly certain nothing is ever discredited in economics!

Was asked to review a paper recently that tried very convincingly to discredit one of my papers. I recommended acceptance as it was very well argued, but also because being at the centre of controversy is great for citations (other people using your work in theirs). And unis only look at citations in terms of promotion and hireability.

I've about a 0 from 100 success rate in predicting political events, but think that's why the FF shift is what wins it. You've Niall Collins, Timmy Dooley, and random other country folk coming out and going 'yeah we need to repeal, this is awful'. FF voters were the swing vote, and probably the opposition, in terms of social conservativism on repeal, and now all their representatives are talking convincingly about how it needs to go.

Bought a tub of MSG in the asian shop last week, tried it for the first time last night in a stir fry and it was dynamite, just a pinch. Good good stuff.

Also bought a tub of Cock flavoured seasoning for the second time.

The first time was for photojokes but it turned out to be quite tasty.
