Are the Harper Cons Getting Close to Winning A Majority?
In my last post I warned that the niqab issue has boosted Stephen Harper's fortunes.
And I have also been warning for weeks what might happen if the progressive parties kept attacking each other instead of joining forces to save our Canada.
And we couldn't rise to the challenge of making that our only cause. And that if we couldn't go big we might as well go home.
Well if this poll is true, we could already be on the verge of disaster.
With less than a month to go in the campaign, and heading into the first of three leaders debates, the Tories have moved ahead of their rivals with the support of 35.4 per cent of voters, according to the Ekos poll conducted for Montreal’s La Presse newspaper.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberals have 26.3 per cent support and the NDP has the backing of 24.5 per cent of respondents. The poll questioned 2,343 people between Sept. 17 and Sept. 22 and is considered accurate to within two percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
“If (the Conservatives) keep those numbers up they’re very close to a majority — if not there already,” said pollster Frank Graves. “The numbers are about as good as we had for the final weekend of polling (in the 2011 election) when they achieved their majority.”
Luckily this is just one poll, and this isn't the last weekend of the campaign. We have more than enough time to change the result.
And this is still good news.
The Ekos survey showed overwhelming support among respondents who considered themselves Liberal or NDP supporters for a coalition rather than having to endure another federal government led by Harper’s Tories.
Now is the time to ignore the idiot bloggers who keep telling us the battle is won, the cat is in the bag, and we can relax.
It isn't and we can't.
Now more than ever it's time to call off the rabid partisans who are destroying our own cause. Denounce them and attack them as hard as we can.
Now is the time to put our country before our parties.
And unite to save our Canada before it's too late...
