    Disappointed to note that support for ME has dropped from the mid 60s last year to the low 50s now.  Why?  Are people who supported ME when it was an abstraction switch gears when it was on the way to becoming "realité"?  Or is it simply a case of a minority that previously kept mum becoming more vocal?

      can produce wide variations, so it's difficult to say whether support really has declined so substantially.

      Seems like support has been pretty steady in the upper 50's for a while.

        shifting the discourse as in 2004.  If so, it'll last for a year or two tops, after which the core haters (read Catholic Church & Front National) will be increasingly marginalised as citizens discover the sky did not, after all, fall on their heads (as per Asterix).
