Whoa. What a difference a day makes. Yesterday I was dreaming about an orange wave.
And wondering if the tulips would ever bloom this year in the darkness of a Harper majority.
Today I'm surfing on this giant wave.
The EKOS-iPolitics survey of more than 3,000 Canadians finds 28 per cent of decided voters now support the NDP, compared to 23.7 per cent who plan to vote Liberal. The Conservatives hold less than a six-point lead, sitting with 33.7 per cent support with just one week to go before election day.
While numbers could still change significantly in the final week of the campaign, Graves said current figures suggest the NDP could take a “breathtaking” 100 seats. With that count, the once-unthinkable scenario of a Layton-led coalition with the Liberals begins to emerge, he said.
And as for those tulips.
They're now a humungous beanstalk....
And the best news of all? Great Ugly
Current numbers would likely produce 131 seats for the Conservatives and about 69 for the Liberals, according to Graves. Together, the NDP and Liberals would have a clear majority with 38 more seats than the Conservatives, as well as a collective 20 more points in popular vote.
And hopefully working on his resignation letter...
Because how is he going to attack the Leader of the "Separatist" Coalition? When Layton is stealing votes away from the separatists and doesn't need them to form a government.
So much for the King of Canada. So much for the political genius.
Oh yeah. One more thing...the Liberals should remember what the Bloc is learning the hard way. When you attack a popular guy like Jack with ridiculous ads like this one...
You risk looking really cheap and desperate. And making Jack even MORE popular. Because that ad is sooooo tacky, and this is grotesque.
Let Harper have his majority - I never understood why everyone was so afraid of a man who would likely be there for one term and wouldn't likely change a heck of a lot. I disagree with the guy on policy and direction, but he will not destroy the country.
Or just IDIOT. I mean why would we fight ourselves when we have the monster where we want him?
Oh well. I guess that's what REAL change means eh?
When a big orange wave comes roaring straight at you, you either ride it or you get SWAMPED.
Oh Great Polar Bear God of The Great White North. I don't know what I've done to deserve this. But please tell me so I can do it again.
And if I'm just dreaming, don't you DARE wake me....
