Paul Wells: ‘As far as I can tell, Stephen Harper is winning’

The Conservatives are gaining ground in the polls faster than the Liberals. And the NDP slump is serious.

    Never thought P. Wells was a conservative. So is he writing this to worry people into voting lib or NDP. I think so.

      You can tell he is Liberal by his focus on the Duffy trial. Average Canadians simply do not care about a “scandal” involving paying back improperly spent taxpayer dollars! Ridiculous. I think Harper is doing well because the opposition parties are pathetic in comparison to the Conservatives, people are waking up to the reality behind the migration in Europe/niqab debate here, and much loathed Kathleen Wynne has stumped for Justin–losing him many votes.

        The Duffy trial is so much inside baseball, with nuances that really only matter to people inside the Ottawa bubble.

        I’m disappointed the Tories felt they had to lie about it. Admitting their appointee had misbehaved and repaying the money back openly would have only strengthened them. Look at the other parties, court rulings against their misuse of funds and they’re still delinquent.

        There’s far bigger reasons to be angry at Harper than the Duffy scandal. But many of those policies and bills I object to have also been backed by the Libs and NDP, so they can’t very well be excused either.

      Very much agree with that theory. Same goes for how must of the media outlets are covering the polls and such. Early on in the campaign these would have been reported as “temporary bumps”, “statistical ties within the margin of error”, or anomalies or any other ways to explain away Conservative leads, Anything to keep it looking like the NDP or Liberals were on the right track and were the team to join with. Now that we are down to the end days of the campaign it’s time to raise the scare factor of a possible Harper win to mobilize the left wing base and make sure they take the time to get out and vote.
      I don’t have the time or resources myself, but I’d be very curious to go back over the last 20 years or so of election coverage. In my head this does really seem to be a trend that happens quite often.

    TPP free trade deal
    “agreeing to set a 45 percent local content requirement for automobiles, sources said Friday.”
    …it is now 60% which means we are screwed again
    …Cons, Harper deny this news story

    • V10_Rob

      Deny that the Liberals and NDP would not also be negotiating such abominations. International agreements like that aren’t about party, it’s about the entire political class.

        OK …yes.. Stevie could just say no also

    The Toronto Star (and Crescent) is in major panic mode.
    Resident P*ki Heather Malick “Are Canadians too nice to defeat Harper”?
    Thomas Walkom “Tories Get Creative with Power to Strip Citizenship”
    Allan Woods “Harper Accused of Singling Out Muslims”
    Susan Delacourt ” Disturbing echoes of the Past in the Niquab Debate”
    Main Editorial comment “Harper’s Ugly End Game”

    Of course I hope Harper wins but who really cares what Paul Wells thinks? With cyberspace full of political pundits why should his opinion be any more valuable than anyone else’s?

    It is clear that should any of the leftist parties (NDP, Liberals Greens) gain power, Canada will quickly follow the same road as Ontario and now Alberta. Anything less than a Conservative majority will not be good. That said we need to take all these polls and opinion pieces with a big grain of salt, since far too many times they have all been proved wrong. I do however truly enjoy watching all those already afflicted with HDS totally lose it over the polls.

    OT: National Observer is a progressively left wing publication I understand. I get the impression many government employed professionals (I have just made some enemies) follow this publication.

  • Only Harper can save Canada from the Muslims, or at least slow down their advance till a stronger man comes along hopefully.
