Harper & the Conservatives Poised To Win Fourth Straight Election?

This really depresses me, but I don't think the NDP or the Liberals will win the next election.

I think Harper has it in the bag, the only question is will it be a majority or a minority?

Probably a minority. The reasoning for my depression is John Ivison latest column.

There have been signs of economic recovery, such as the prospect of balanced budgets and an unemployment rate that is at its lowest level in six years.

The impending surplus has allowed the Prime Minister to drive a wedge between the Conservatives and the opposition, in the form of the family tax relief package, that will spend the surplus cash before the Liberals or NDP can get their hands on it.
