Spectator: "Liberal Democrats are racing certainties to hold Eastleigh"

Conservative weekly The Spectator reports today that the Tories have already given up Eastleigh as a lost cause:
The good news for Nick Clegg—and the bad news for David Cameron—is that the Liberal Democrats are racing certainties to hold Eastleigh in the by-election next Thursday.
But it’s not time to open the champagne just yet. The by-election is not in the bag and money and help are still needed. Also, we may find next Friday morning that the media are not talking about a Liberal Democrat victory but instead a strong third place for UKIP.
