I don't think he'll get a majority. I hope not. Or maybe that is what this country needs: 4 years of Tory tyranny. That should be enough to stop this nonsense.
It is unbelievable people still support Harper after so many crisis: the incredible Helena Guergis debacle, first as an incompetent minister then kicked out over crazy allegations brought up by the Prime Minister's Office, Rahim Jaffer, the flip-flop about the senate, Dimitri Soudas (many times in hot water) Bev Oda lying to Parliament (not), everything about Bruce Carson, being the first and only party ever found to be in contempt of Parliament, merely days before the beginning of the campaign, americanizing Canadian politics with negative attack ads, taking only 4 questions each day of the campaign, no follow up question allowed so he could just say whatever he wants... And yet, the Prairies will be almost all blue again. They are special.
Or will there truly be a huge Orange realignment? Many polls show that the NDP might have the best results of their history. Official opposition for the first time, not bad. They were closing in fast on the Conservatives in the polls.
Maybe the polls underestimated the electoral machines of the Liberals and the Bloc Québécois (only in Québec), who were just passed by the NDP these last few weeks. The Greens, never worth mentioning until the last elections, have plummeted and are even less of a factor
It will be an interesting night for sure. As usual, whatever happens in Ontario will be key. As it stands, Tories were in the lead there, but they do not seem to have gained any popular support since last election.
Last National poll:
These are historic lows for the Liberals and the BQ.
My thoughts exactly, sir.
Let's bring on total hell, so we can bring about the backlash. Seems like there's no other way
