Oh my poor tin pot dictator. He spent billions of our dollars promoting himself. He tried to hog the glory at the Olympics. He stuck to the Queen like a bed bug. He pit Canadians against Canadians like a crazy man.
And all he got was this lousy poll.
The EKOS survey delivers nothing but bad news for the Tories, showing their support reduced to a narrow base of hardcore older Western males. This, as they bleed support from women, young people and university educated Canadians.
And look it gets better.
Michael Ignatieff’s Liberals would eke out a razor-thin minority government, winning 10 more seats than Stephen Harper’s Conservatives if an election were held today, a new poll suggests.
Oh no. He blew an ELEVEN point lead. He could lose FORTY seats. No wonder he's so desperate. Where's my mah... mah... mah... MAJORITY?
Golly Great Napoleon I don't know. May I suggest you consult a proctologist ? But don't bother looking for it in Quebec
Because as Frank Graves points out:
Quebec is now “scorched earth” for the Conservatives. The EKOS numbers indicate the party would be reduced to one seat from the 11 they now hold in that province.
And since Quebecers are the biggest supporters of the gun registry, you can see the writing on the wall.
And so can Jack Layton.
Jack Layton's lustre seems diminished from the past. While he is still the only tested leader with a net positive approval rating, that margin has shrunk. He does very well with women and in Quebec. The looming gun registry challenge may pose special challenges for Mr. Layton with these two favourable constituent groups (who tend to be strongly in favour of gun control)
Because with Ignatieff in position to defeat Harper, if the NDP helps kill the gun registry, a wave of defections will make Iggy Prime Minister.
Yup. The census brought the Cons down.The gun registry will finish them off. Now it's Harper and his grubby old rednecks, versus women, the young, and the educated.
How can we lose eh?
But wait what's this?
The pollster notes, too, that the parties were tied last fall. But that was before the Prime Minister’s virtuoso performance of a Beatles tune at a National Arts Centre gala, after which the Tories surged to a 16-point lead in the polls last October.
“Perhaps the PM should consider rebooking the NAC for return engagement,” Mr. Graves said.
Oh sure. That should work.
I can just see Great Desperate Leader playing for an audience of educated people.
Trying to make them LOVE him again.
By dressing up as a kitten.
The sympathy vote?
Where's my mah... mah... mah... MAJORITY !!!!!!
The Decline and Fall of Napoleon Harper.
I LOVE horror movies with happy endings. Don't you?
