The Clegg bounce illustrated by the volume of newspaper stories
Since the first TV debate, Nick Clegg has started to be taken seriously by the newspapers (or been the victim of a series of hatchet jobs, depending on your point of view).
The charts show how the number of stories about Nick Clegg has soared in The Sun, The Daily Mail and The Guardian - even allowing for the fact a general election is on.
Comparing April with January:
- Daily Mail: 37% more stories about David Cameron - more than 4 times as many about Nick Clegg.
- The Sun: 27% more stories about Cameron - more than 11 times as many about Clegg.
- The Guardian: 80% more stories about Cameron - more than 6 times as many about Clegg.
