Sorry about the italics!

There is a fundamental flaw in the survey, by the way. When people are asked who they want running the country, they naturally think of a majority government, since that is the normal situation, and the question implicitly steers them in that direction. The answer to the question 'Which person could get most support from other parties if they were leader of a minority government?' might yield a very different answer.
