    Good news indeed.
    Who’s the polling firm?
    Wonder if we’ll see a Christy Clark like bounce.

    Couillard was listed as best Premier in the Ipsos poll.

    Marois will not admit the possibility of being fired by voters, but when they do fire her they might help her find a job in the private sector:

    Looks good on the PQ for their inane policies. They’ve doubled down on identity politics and split the sovereignty cause in two with a lot of support shifting to the QS. This becomes particularly acute when sovereignty itself is not anywhere near the level it needs to be to win a referendum (currently hovering around 40%). I’d hazard a guess that the number of that 40% who think a referendum win is likely in the short-term is even lower. This means that sovereigntists are going to think more about how they want to be governed rather than looking for a catch-all sovereignty party. The PQ’s obsession with the Charter, and then leaving their left flank open by recruiting PKP has cost them this election. Well, that and the fact they haven’t been able to talk about how they’d govern throughout the entire campaign. If these results hold, books will be written about this campaign.

    Is Sun news going to throw a “Welcome Back!” party for PKP?

    I’m not a political strategist by any means but I can’t help but think most people have to be ticked they called an election less than two years into their mandate. All the other issues just made it worse.
