reports of surging conservatives are greatly exaggerated

In these earlier posts, I was searching for a blog post I had seen that debunked a recent poll showing a looming Conservative majority. A BCer in Toronto helps me out.

A more recent poll shows the Grits and Tories in a statistical tie; these numbers corroborate yet a third poll. There's no good reason to fear an election.

Not that I think the Liberals should let polls determine their policy. I'd prefer they grew spines instead.

BCer in Toronto's post here. I'll also add this to comments on the earlier wmtc posts.

This is the beauty of democracy. A party has a viewpoint, and we the public choose and decide amongst differing viewpoints.

It's too bad that parties have abandoned principles, in pursuit of power as an end unto itself. This subverts the way democracy is supposed to function.

Well said. Hope you're doing well there on the other side of the globe, t-jedi.
