There appears to be a dearth of polls in B.C.

Is that because John Horgan is so popular the mainstream media don’t want to show how popular he is?

Just askin’’

It seems to me that the BC Liberal numbers have been reduced by the increase of the BC Conservative numbers by a dozen points since the last election. The BC Conservatives have done well in opinion polls between elections but by the time an election approaches their numbers have dwindled away as the right solidly backs the BC Liberals to avoid vote-splitting. The BC Conservative only received 0.5% in the last election even though they had gone up to 15% in the polls previously. If we use FPTP in the next election I think this phenomena will repeat. I think the BC Liberals will be back around 40% by the time of the next election which has been enough for them to win phoney FPTP "majority" governments. This is why the BC Liberals and the right are vehemently opposing PR.

Why are pollsters even mentioning the Conservatives? They ran only 10 candidates the last time and haven't had a full time leader in two years.

Exemplified by the two previous posts Liberals seem to singing the blues across this country more and more these days

Being petty and small-minded by depriving citizens of their Parliamentary representation is s sure fire way to incur the wrath of the voters

Keep it up Justin as you are making the opposition look better and better with each passing day

What I want for Christmas is for the NDP to call an election

Let’s Rock and Roll with our very popular NDP Premier John Horgan
