Latest polling thread - June 18, 2012
seven different polling firms NDP is ahead Cons but 2 more (Ekos and Innovative) still wait and one pollster Abacus hardcore conservative, next day will see Abacus release if NDP beat CON, let challenge Abacus. lol
exactly, and building on the last 2 posts, so if the concentration of progressive vote is concentrated in the urban areas, such as Calgary and Edmoniton and there was another area, provinciallhy where the NDP provincially did well, why with further polarization, the NDP could be quite competitive.
I think this perhaps has shocked and confused Conservative strategists into inaction. It won't last, but for the moment they're acting as though for the first time they don't know what to do.
Well, they've done something. First attack ad:
I find that attack ad to be pretty weak and likely to only help the Tories fire up their own base. Interestingly they're not going after Mulcair's character and instead doing that old "NDP will tax and spend" routine that has been done to death.
Latest Abacus has:
NDP - 35
LIB - 20
With Trudeau as leader:
CON - 33
LIB - 32
NDP - 24
A bit ridiculous, but there it is
That abacus poll with Trudeau even if it is ridiculous goes to show how little people actaully think about what it means when they decide how they are going to vote. It shows people don't remember how the years have actually been for them, but instead "remember" how the years have been for them based on what the MSM has told them.
But, i still say Trudeau is going to run, and I am convinced he believes that if he gets the leadership of the LPC, there willbe NOTHING to stop his becoming PM. And given how basically stupid, so many Canadian voters really are when it comes down to it, I don't think it is impossible to think that may happen.
This Trudeau frenzy is making me very, very nervous. If anyone wants to explain with examples why Trudeau could never win, I am open to hearing it, but I stand by my feeling that this is a real possiblity, and that the Libs may be back in power before I finish saying "Ready, Aye Ready".
I simply cannot understand how any of my fellow citizens who don't vote NDP want me to think they actually think when they are considering putting this con-artist, in charge. It is completely and totally mind blowing.
Well Arthur, Trudeau would have to actually have to talk about "vision" (his vision) for Canada, and his ideas about policy in different areas of national importance. That's the problem with a "crowned prince" and he will actually have to get some gravus, which so far he has under his belt "many speaking dates talking to high school students about youth empowerment" but he doesn't have anything of his own "empowerment" to show for it (thus empty platitudes) and one recent boxing match.
Mark my word, the Cons want him as leader as an easy mark and to suck some vote from the NDP. For us, it depends "what he runs on" - is he another pretend lib progressive. Personally I have no read idea where he stands on issues because beyond his silly twitter feed, he is just a carature.
