Shoppers were asked if they preferred George Osborne or Ed Balls when they were asked to 'vote' in the Daily Politics mood box.
Some were stuck for a decision over a potential chancellor, who to have lunch with, share a flat or desert island with, or could date their daughter in the most un-scientific of polls.
Adam Fleming tested the mood in Spitalfields Market in east London where voting was tight, but the option of neither might well have secured more than both candidates together.
