I didn’t realize how apt it was…
Ain’t got no money,
dont know where to go.
Just sittin’ staring at the stereo.
I think we better turn it UP, turn it UP, turn it UP
That’s actually a pretty good summary of their campaign, now that I think of it…
As for right now, the NDP continues to poll well.
OTTAWA – A new poll suggests the New Democrats are widening their support across the country.
The Canadian Press Harris Decima survey indicates that the NDP have 34 per cent of popular support, compared to 30 per cent for the Conservatives.
With a margin of error of 2.2 percentage points, support for the two parties could be equally split.
Still, the poll indicates that the New Democrats have become competitive in traditional Tory areas.
Among rural Canadians, the poll suggests the New Democrats have 31 per cent support, compared to 35 per cent for the Tories.
The NDP appear to have the support of 36 per cent of urban and suburban men, a number that has risen steadily since February.
Meanwhile, the Conservatives are seeing their support in that demographic appear to hover around 29 per cent, down from close to 40 per cent four months ago. …
Overall, the Liberals continue to hold steady at 20 per cent support, the poll suggests.
Just over 2,000 Canadians were polled for the survey in the last week of April and first week of May.
Well, as long as the Tories continue to lead in Ontario, I continue to believe they’re doing fine, and the national polls will rebound over the next years.
The big worry for Team Blue, however, is BC, which very well could go NDP next election. In fact, I rather expect it to — the conservative side has won BC in seven straight elections, after the NDP won it in 1988 in the Free Trade Election. It’s time for them to do something different — it isn’t a true blue province like Alberta.
Anyway. Liberals are still dead, NDP is riding high, and the Tories watch and wait vis-a-vis the Mulcair juggernaut.
