Patrick Brown achieves “…good penetration – a really good, strong breakthrough” but most will still not vote for him says poll

PCs still lag behind Liberals despite launch of new platform

Asked if the Tories got a bump in the tracking poll from their platform launch, Campaign Research CEO Eli Yufest said: “No, not at all.”

“It’s kind of surprising because they were able to captivate a large audience,” he said Friday.

Indeed, using techniques pollsters employ to determine brand awareness for corporate clients, the firm showed the online panel a photograph of the cover of the “People’s Guarantee” featuring a beaming Brown.

His name, the party logo and the key promises from the platform were removed in order to gauge awareness.

An impressive 29 per cent of respondents said they had seen the image, and 52 per cent identified Brown.

“That’s good penetration — a really good, strong breakthrough,” Yufest said.

“But what they achieved in terms of breakthrough and recall, they fell really short on doing anything meaningful to draw people to their camp, obviously,” he said.

    Eeeww!! I can’t imagine being penetrated by Patsy Brownnose.

  • glasnost

    Pity Ontarians for the choice they’re faced with.

    • It’s Brutal.

    • And how long again has the Carpet Muncher run that province?

    • Clausewitz

      Hey Ontario PC’s, give me a conservative to vote for and I will, not this POS.

    Let’s face it, voters are shallow and they would like to see a physically attractive politico in the Pink Palace

    After more than a decade of Coyote Ugly critters occupying the space — first, the Norman Bates look-alike with his pock-marked visage and then and now the horse-faced whinny who has a penchant for really old, old vintage clothes that weren’t even cool when they were current way back when — the sheeples are hungry for a bit of glamour.

    But Patrick can’t deliver. To me, he always looks as if he crawled out of a coffin when the clock struck midnight. Zero fashion sense, squeaky voice, but he does have nice teeth — lucky bastard has a dentist sister. And I haven’t even touched on the small matter of his inability to tell the truth or to take a stance and stick to it. But most sheeples don’t really care about things like that.

    That’s why Andrea Horvath has the highest approval rating at this point in time — she has great hair!!! Her hair is so terrific that one doesn’t notice the steely glitter in her cold blue eyes.

    Perish the thought!! Does anyone remember the election of 1990?

      Horvath reminds me a lot of Broadbent, despite being the socialist, she’s the only sane one of the bunch. Too bad her party is nuts, and most of her followers are crazy, because I suspect she is going to win the next election. I’m a conservative, but there’s no point voting for Brown, we might as well just let the whole thing burn down.

  • He’s another liberal. What would be the difference between him and Wynne?

    If Ontarians want to maintain the status quo within the province all they have to do is vote for Patrick Brown. He’s a Liberal pretending to be a Conservative.

  • doowleb

    If the Liberals are going to completely destroy Ontario’s economy, I want to ensure they take the electoral blame for generations to come. Brown said all the right things to get the nod as party leader. He then recanted and showed himself to be another Liberal in charge of a PROGRESSIVE conservative Party. If he wins the election and governs the same as the Liberals, the electorate will simply go back to the Liberals while our party is saddled with the economic blame. Because of this real dynamic, Brown is a bigger danger to actual conservatism in Ontario then Wynne could ever be.

    Well, I’m glad to hear that he has achieved “good penetration”. I mean we all want that , don’t we?

    • Shebel

      I think that it is better than NO penetration.
