to me a "star" candidate is someone with:
- broadbased name recognition;
- previous elected experience;
- has a built in semi or quasi cult appeal Tongue

so no, the liberals have not nominated a star candidate...

Yeah, it was lower than the NDP turnout, but only 100 or so lower.

But... nanos seems to be the outlier for Ontario:

Abacus (jan 16-19) - 25%
Angus-Reid (jan 20-21) - 24%
Harris-decima (jan 12-22) - 26%
all around the same timeframa as the Nanos poll, so the numbers were seeing are not much lower then the 29% from May11

Actually the NDP got 26% in Ontario on May 2/11

Thanks DL... so i have no idea where i got 29% just being hopeful i suppose Smiley

So the NDP isn't polling any change since May, and with that it looks good...
Chow is also pullin out all the stops in order to help Craig:

I think the party is very VERY commited to have a Winnipeg North repeat; without a "star" candidate for the Liberals i don't see that happening, but i've had two calls to help out Craig.

Media kept throwing Miller (a Dipper) and Kennedy around, dunno who else it might have been. Maybe one of Dad's crew?

If that holds... and i hope it does (i'm always cautious not to get over confident with polls) thats just slightly more than Jack got!
Jack Layton - 60.8
Andrew Lang - 17.62
Katarina Von Koenig - 14.32
Adriana MH - 6.46

NDP up; Tories no change; Liberals down... DOWN! more then 2011, #fail. if the Liberals do this bad when Rae is the darling of the media, they are dooned in TO as far as i can see... whate they have left will be gobbled up between the NDP and Tories

Looks good, but the usual rules about constituency polling, polling in by-elections...

The Liberals never had a chance of winning this riding, but are otherwise polling just fine in Ontario. Though I do wonder who their mystery candidate, if they actually exist, was.

If there ever was a Liberal "star candidate" waiting in the wings, I suspect that they did a poll of their own, saw that they would get slaughtered and and decided not to be a sacrificial lamb to Bob rae's latest vanity project.

The people mentioned were Miller (a Dipper last I checked) and Kennedy. Neither of whom are particularly inclined to kamikaze missions.

Agreed, i think it might be a tad too optimistic, fantastic if thats the outcome esp going into the leadership race. but i think were more in for a 48-52% range.

It used to be Rae's riding eons ago, so not totally off the wall. How popular is Rae in TO proper these days?

Being an old MP form the 80's isn't being an asset, I suppose.

Apart from Danforth, the only other possibility barring death or resignation is if Topp somehow wins the leadership and a poteau resigns to make way.

He is running agaist free trade, for tarrifs, for a Republic, against participating in "US wars", to reduce pesticides, herbicides and to ban factory farming.
