18 polls over 11 months and everyone suggesting 50% or more of voters will give the SNP their first vote yet throughout that time, pundits at the Herald and the Scotsman, from Tom Gordon in February, telling us SNP could pay a heavy price for skimping on police budget to him again, only last week, writing Alex Salmond inquiry: Nicola Sturgeon ‘sunk’ by husband’s evidence, claim Tories, have predicted doom.

Are they stupid?
Well, yes, the pundits are.
