Election 2015 - 2

Angus Reid Poll: Conservatives 34%, Justin’s Hair and Communists tied at 27% #elxn42

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s ruling Conservatives, buoyed by polls showing they are starting to break away in the run-up to the Oct. 19 election, predict they will do even better than forecast given their past ability to beat polls that underestimate voter support.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives, seeking a rare fourth consecutive term, had 34 percent support in an Angus Reid poll released on Thursday, compared with 27 percent support for the rival Liberals and New Democrats.

    They’ve only had one majority government, 4.5 years long.

    From the post:
    “Eric Grenier, of the poll-aggregating website ThreeHundredEight.com, said that pattern, set in 2008 and 2011, may not be repeated this time around, with voters suffering from some fatigue after nearly 10 years of Harper”.
    Translation: Eric Grenier and his firm get lots of money from the dominant, establishment media cartel, all of whom want Harper to lose. So Mr. Grenier’s opinions follow the big money.

    Although I don’t want to count my chickens….I guess Stephen Harper was pretty smart in having a long period of campaigning leading up to the election. His conservative stand on the niqab, economic migrants and stripping citizenship from terrorists have all probably given the Conservatives a very nice boost in the polling numbers! Let’s hope it lasts as he is clearly the best choice to lead this country.

    The cover of next week’s Maclean’s that was written this week has a cover about how Justin is moving up fast and is going to overtake Harper.

    Time to end the magazine subsidies when the next Government sits.
