"Polling evidence would not seem to indicate that the issue resonates much with the public. That mightn't matter as the PDs are a niche party. It could also be the case that support for tax cuts is understated in opinion polls."

I wouldn't trust an opinion poll too much, particularly when it comes to taxes: as you said, support for tax cuts are generally underestimated. I think what is probably happening is that when people are asked which policies they support for an opinion poll, they will claim 'community' issues such as health and education over 'selfish' interests such as tax cuts, just to keep up appearances. It's no coincidence that Tory support is frequently understated in British polls!
