Tusk has only a five points of dominance on Kaczynski!

Very bad...

It is hard to get me head round these polls. They have jumped around all week. Two days ago there was a poll that put Tusk 9 points ahead...yesterday an OBOP said 6...now five. The calculation must be; how will the votes be shared around in the second round. Leppers will go to Kaczor...Kalinowski's probably the same... I think two weeks time will be as interesting as England Poland will be on Wednesday!

And people seem to be reacting lukewarm-ly at best to Donald Tusk's impression of an attack on Lech Kaczyński last night in the debates. Interesting it will be...

Tusks problem is that when he tries to act tough he comes across as a very angry bunny rabbit. I think the election(s) were PO's to lose and the idiots managed to lost the first one, and more and more I think Poland's going to end up with a Kaczynski presidency and some really bad government.

How pathetic do you have to be to lose the f-ing Duck brothers?

lol

What is it about PO that makes them choke at each election? Sometimes it seems like Tusk is trying to lose.

Speaking of bad government: The more I see of him, the more Kaczyński reminds me of Bush, and his platform of Bush's "compassionate conservatism."

Well, they did steal the moon once...

Maybe he is. The president doesn't have that much power, and since the parliamentary elections, PiS hasn't exactly been acting like they need or want PO or are going to listen to them when and if a government is formed. Maybe the PO plan is to have as little as possible to do with PiS and governing and hope they be able to escape blame when people turn against PiS (which I'm sure they will).
I suspect that if PiS has a free hand, they'll mortally piss everyone off within 6 months, something tells me they're better at (dirty) campaigning than governing.
