And since my last thread was derailed again, before I got to the final arguments I promised. Here they are.
Repeated many a time on rabble, especially recently by true-blue partisans: "There are more votes to be gained by trying to attract Liberal voters" (than there is by trying to encourage more progressive voters out) (What I meant by 'within reason' Boom Boom, a position most Canadians could at least accept if not actively support)
But is that really true either?
Results in BC last election (and not so different from earlier ones, somewhat lower than some, somewhat higher than others...many votes going Reform not Liberal in the West during the nineties low-point):
Results federally (Look for how many go Liberal federally as compared to those wjho stay left of Liberals...fairly consistently. Not just the One percent...or point .oooo percent as certain NDPers like say):
One more, then final summary.
