I thought Nuttall acquitted himself well against AN tonight. Unlike LibLabCon he tried to answer not, evade, the questions AN put to him and Andrew Neil clearly liked him for that which made the interview a whole lot easier for Nuttall.
I thought Nuttall's pretty straight answers will appeal to the electors compared oo the weasel words of Farron, May & Corbyn etc. He did not have to be asked the same question umpteen times and did not attempt to evade the point of the question.
Overall his performance will play well with the electors outside the M25 and will win votes for UKIP with D/C electors. I therefore expect UKIP to do better than expected on 8th June. They will still no badly but it won,t be a total massacre. UKIP will still be on the pitch come 9th June.
