What the audience wants
What this really should do is encourage him to pen a sequel to his 2006 political book, “Right Side Up“.
He has a market open to him.
In the online survey of a representative national sample of 1,000 Canadian adults, 49 per cent of respondents agree with holding a federal election next year while one third (34%) disagree with the idea.
Nearly three-in-five respondents who voted for the Conservative Party in the 2008 federal election (57%) do not want to see an election in 2011. Conversely, 58 per cent of people who voted for either the Liberal Party or the New Democratic Party (NDP) in 2008 do support an election.
Despite their personal opinions on the matter, a majority of Canadians (57%) feel that a federal election is likely in the New Year. One quarter (24%) think it is unlikely while one-in-five are not sure (19%).
This interests me because, well, I think Prime Minister Harper is in a pretty good position to survive the next election as prime minister.
Maybe the Liberals want a new leader?
