guess the attacks are working. hope those who are trying to bring the NDP down get what they believe they won't.
No all the polls are showing a three way split. Others who show differently I believe I just outliers. The Liberals have had growth since the debate.
That's true. Especially in Ontario. I think though that the debate helped solidify the NDP's foothold in Quebec. And I think by having Harper admit that things economically aren't as rosy as he had been trying to project was useful. Also, with Mulcair now seen as an underdog, the next debate could be a turning point. Or not. Who knows?
Still, it's early. I think things will go well for the NDP. And the Lib/Con attack of the NDP making all sorts of promises they can't possibly afford to keep mutes the criticism that they're abandoning principle and moving to the right. Currently the criticism is they're too left and too spend-thrift on programs to possibly deliver. This, I feel, is exactly where we want it to be. With competent administration, not only can you vote for change, but you can actually get it. The presentation of proposals, then the debates, and the upcoming release of a fully costed platform will capture people's imagination, I think. Do people want more of the Lib/Con tax cutting side show, or do they want real government with the NDP? We'll see. But I feel people will want the latter rather than the former.
