But I notice that news outlets are now reporting the Liberals are within reach of forming the next government. So maybe for a change my mid-September prediction that Trudeau was beginning to pull away from the crowd will turn out to be correct.
Today's Nanos tracking poll confirms the Liberal's upward trend:
The current Nanos nightly tracking shows the Liberals at 35.1% support nationally followed by the Conservatives at 29.0%, the NDP at 25.0%, and the Greens at 5.1%.The Harper Cons have done themselves no favours in this election with their niquab-baiting. When even Conrad Black turns against you (even considering how he must feel about the Liberals) you're doing it wrong:
This government has scraped the barrel in symbolic pandering: building new prisons and hiring new hosts of correctional officers as the crime rate declines, dispensing with elemental safeguards to due process in Bill C-51, claiming the right to expel and revoke the citizenship of dual citizens found guilty of terrorist offences, all in the name of enhanced public security, and now conducting the concluding phase of a general election campaign on an issue of no relevance involving a trivial number of people.And Tabatha Southey's brilliant bear-in-a-bar analogy raises the question we now have to ask about the Harper Cons -- who is next?

who is next?
Kenney has vocalized against "show those hippies"
he and helmet head might agree there
longhairs sabotaging the economy by putting barbers out of business while unnecessarily clogging infrastructure and are generally ecoterrorists.....
(please don't release my email ....with ideas like that i might be conscripted to a conservative "think" tank)
Most polls have the Conservatives and Liberals tied (within the margin of error) - the NDP is trailing by about 10 points. If the sans-resume leader wins then Canada loses.
It sounds like Conrad Black has finally gotten totally fed-up with Harper's general incompetence and extremely nasty agenda. Ridiculous and very dangerous moves such as C-51 and the squalid and racist/religiously intolerant, not to mention pointless, niqab debate probably have filled him with disgust.
I have never been particularly fond of Black but I have never heard of him being racist or religiously intolerant. Rapacious perhaps but not racist.
I have come to the conclusion that as a leader of the country, if not the gutter politician, Harper is likely the most incompetent PM we have ever had. And come to think of it, with his unerring ability to pick the worst person for the job and espouse the most alienating policies, he is not that great a gutter politician.
I suspect his length in office is/was more do to opposition incompetence than to any real ability on his part.
Here is all you need to know about the Left's new hero--terrorist supporter Zunera Ishaq, who got busted on Facebook.
Extremely Extreme Extremist
P.S. Ekos has the CPC leading in the polls.
