I answered that Angus Reid survey two days ago. I am in their web based panel.

I am too; I didn't get that survey though.

Hopefully she'll get better. It doesn't look that bad.

Actually that's pretty low considering how much of the electorate is anti-Harper and doesn't care which party it takes to get rid of him.

But those figures seem to suggest Trudeau receives substantial support from people who would otherwise vote Tory as well. Like a Canadian Blair.

True. I'm somewhat surprised as it seemed that the Tory floor was 30% or so. Obviously that isn't the case.

It probably still is, actually.

True. I'm pretty sure our "Justin Trudeau is a pretty boy, not a leader" ads should knock 4% off at least Tongue

Yes, and most of that will come back to the NDP. The Tories are quite useful in scaring would-be Liberal voters in to the NDP camp. Maybe I should donate to them Smiley

That Place projects the AR poll as 180 Tories, 112 NDP, 38 Grits, 3 BQ because of a Western sweep. The JT part of the poll is only called a "large majority."

I recall a Liberal acquaintance saying the same thing circa 2006 Cheesy

The JT part of the poll didn't give regional breakdowns, so difficult to accurately model. My model gave laughable results, as a result.

Pat Martin close to a settlement?

Nothing will come of this.

Fantino posted a partisan screed on department website. Reads like Sun or a fundraising letter. It'll be taken down soon, per Twitter, so read it while you can.

Oh, and here's another one.

Portrait of the Quebec provincial electorate- no surprises. Older and wealthier people prefer the PLQ, highly educated hipsters QS, etc.

100 most influential people. Bit different than Maclean's power rankings. Haven't heard of the mandarins.

Ivison strongly hints that Flaherty might retire this summer. I guess Rajotte or Menzies would be the logical replacement.

What about moving another big gun into Flaherty's spot instead?

Baird maybe. On second thought your scenario seems more accurate. Kenney's too valuable in Immigration, and I don't think MacKay or Clement in finance would work too well Tongue

Rajotte would be spectacular in that role. He was an exceptional Industry Critic prior to 2006, and I am keen to see him in Cabinet. One of my favourite MPs.

More robocall crap, this time relating to the Saskatchewan redistribution. Per Tom Lukiwski Jenni Byrne is the one ultimately responsible. Not a fan, but if we have to do that we should at least ID ourselves.

http://www.canada.com/business/Responsibility+deceptive+Saskatchewan+robocall+rests+with+Jenni/7927408/story.html

Poilievre has another op-ed out on RTW, though he doesn't use that term. Dunno if the bill will ever see the light of day, and if so whether it's a project for this term or the next.

Smid: Agreed.

Really, that's more French style (splitting cities and making rurban seats) than American.

IIRC the rurban seats were an NDP idea. Tories are just taking advantage of it now that they have the advantage.
