Quick question for Ontarians: what's going on with the wild poll variations? Cause some polls have a Lib-PC dead heat and others a PC-NDP dead heat with the Liberals a distant third.

Isn't Nanos the only pollster to show the Liberals polling decently? The latest Forum shows the PCs at 37, the NDP at 35 and the Liberals at 20. Incidentally, if that result ever came to be, I'd probably commit suicide. Hudak is a disgusting scumbag who would be a total and utter disaster for the province (possibly worse than Mike Harris) and who would totally destroy whatever good is left in Ontario. Horwath is a horrible person who would be a crappy Premier; if the ONDP was led by some Mulcair-type, I really wouldn't care and would probably be voting NDP, but Horwath is so horrible. Ugh.
What's so awful about Horwath?  Even for a Liberal voter?

No No No No No NO NO NO NO!  I knew Mulcair was a rotten egg.

So what's up with this whole Boulerice-WWI controversy?  Is it actually taboo to criticize that war up there?

Quebec is the only province where this is an issue.

Well, if anyone in the NDP would have that personality, it'd easily be Mulcair.

Well, that would explain it.  I remember literally laughing seeing the Greens at 10%.  I'd never heard of that company before seeing that poll.

Dewar has been fined $7000 for illegal robocalls during his leadership campaign, ditto the company in question.
Rather sad, I always thought he was at least a good guy, even though he would have been a bad leader.

In other news, Trudeau flip-flops on pot.

Can't wait to see the credible polls resume.  Hoping that the Trudeau bubble will have burst fully.

What do you mean by "burst fully?" Back to third nationally? There is clear evidence that the NDP is clawing back a bit in Quebec, for starters.
Yes, or at least 2nd.  But that's good to hear.

And Mulcair continues to pull the NDP rightwards. I'm almost hoping the NDP loses big time in 2015 so that he'll get the boot.

Ontario Dippers: does Horwath really think she could win? Those Ipsos LV numbers suggest a certain type of Horwath surge could lead to a Tory government.

The NDP hasn't had this much of a chance of winning since 1990, so yes. I have seen polls over the last couple of years that showed a 3 way race, with all three parties in the low 30s.

Dear God.  Next time we have a "best joke party" poll, the PQ better be included. 

I feel so sorry for everyone who has to live in a province where these clowns are taken seriously.

It's tradition in Canada to eat turkey on Christmas. It's removed enough from Thanksgiving (which is in early October) so as to not be repetitive.

Poor Canadian turkeys...
