Yep. Dunderdale hasn't made national news, so I assume she's doing an OK job. Hard to follow a living legend like Danny Williams but she's making the best of it.

It just might be people voting against the provincial government just for the fact that they have a majority (who would probably come back to the PC's in a scandal-free, uneventful election), plus some support spilling in from those supporting the federal NDP.

In this political climate, a Red Tory would win in a massive landslide.

Maybe, but the leadership's another matter. Harper's probable successor as party leader is Albertan, but the name's Jason Kenney. Not Alison Redford.

Jason Kenney is a very smart man, but I don't think he's that electable. Canadians probably wont tolerate another Albertan as PM, but they might make an exception for Redford. But yeah, she probably wouldnt become leader. It will probably be a "blue" as you say.

Hopefully that neopotism brings Conservative popularity even lower.

Purgatory support is nearing 30% in the worst of polls for them, so they're certainly hitting their floor at this point.

Yep. We have the lowest ceiling but the highest floor.

May is being pathetically transparent, if her actions during her time as MP didn't make it clear enough. This is why I hate strategic voting because this is the next "logical" step. Someone please defeat her in 2015.

Maybe she should follow her own advice and be the only Green candidate during the next election, as the party is pathetic and has no chance anywhere. Then maybe more of her precious Liberals can be elected? Assuming the 2% of Green voters would even bother voting.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/may-greens-and-ndp-should-stay-off-etobicoke-by-election-ballot/article4424700/

Maybe the Greens and Liberals should bow out of Durham and Calgary Center under this logic? But I doubt May has the balls to boss around her Liberal overlords.

The NDP should make a concerted effort to defeat Elizabeth May come next election. It's important.

I just think it's sad how the Greens have such a poor leader that doesn't even believe in her own party and doesn't want Green voters in Etobicoke to have their first choice available. I wouldn't vote for her during the next Green convention if I had the choice. The Green Party under Elizabeth May has been all about her, ever since the beginning.

Guys, Im really starting to fear Trudeau. We're doing a survey at work, where we're asking Canadian's support for Liberal leader. Not one person told me someone other than Trudeau. Of course, the sample of who I did surveys with is small, but it's telling.

Of course regular Canadians don't know anyone else with prospects of running for the leadership, other than our lord and savior Justin Trudeau.

Well, they were given a list. But yeah, I'm sure most people weren't familiar with most. We asked for people's second preferences too, which was more interesting.

So who led second preferences? Garneau, David McGuinty or LeBland?

Didn't do enough surveys for anyone to stand out. Garneau, McGuinty and Cauchon all got one. That's all I can remember. Most people were undecided beyond Trudeau. Remember, Im calling the general public, not just Liberals (well, actually our panel members)

No sense for the environmental party to merge with a pro-oil party.

Hmm.

Never thought I'd see myself agreeing with Redford.

Clark is floundering. For once I agree with Coyne.
