Where have all the weekly polls gone? Shouldn't all the polling companies be out in force, asking about the green shift? I'm curious, aren't they? Or are the results not being published? Call me skeptical, but the silence is deafening.
The latest poll numbers I could find were from Ipsos. Shows a tie. Funny how you can't access the actual data. Nik on the Numbers, hasn't done a poll on how we would vote, since April? You remember, his firm was the most accurate during the election, but now looking at his site, he pontificates with few numbers to back him up.
Check out his latest article, not one single number, not one. Excuse me, but don't you do surveys to find out public opinion, with some numbers?
Then we have Decima, did they forget Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba again? Just asking because I see no mention of the west, except for BC, well, I know BC is in the west, but, they are only part of the west. Did Decima include Toronto and forget Alberta, because you see, the two cancel each other out. And they talk about urban women, not rural women, why did they exclude rural women? Just asking.
So, one won't show their numbers, the next talks but has no numbers, and the third, forgets a few provinces, and rural women? Nice.
If the two parties are tied, as the polls show, why did the Liberals sit on their hands over 40 times? Why not a fall election? I love the fall, door knocking will be much more pleasant in the fall than the winter like last time. What's it going to be Dion? Here are his choices as I see them:
1. Sit on hands tell October 2009, then lose.
2. Wait for December, then maybe get booted as Liberal leader, then lose.
3. Force election in fall, then lose.
4. Call uncle, claim bankruptcy and step down, then lose.
Yikes it's not looking good for Dion!
