Whoops! Looks like all the Divide-and-Conquer tactics, all the abortions and guns that have been furiously lobbed our way from the PMO over the past few months, aren’t enough to make stubborn Canadians fall in love with CRAP, and might even piss us off a little.
According to the latest EKOS poll released today, we are sooooo not impressed with the whole “Culture War” thing, it’s just sooooo Last Decade:
33%!?? — it’s enough to make a grown man cry. And Stephen Harper, too.
What happened? Does the weekly tracking tell the tale?:
I take it to mean that no matter how much we might beef and bitch at each other, when push comes to shove, pitting Canadian against Canadian isn’t a winning formula. The temporary polarization has only served to put us on edge and apparently, make us get a little more serious about this “voting” thing. But it doesn’t look like the CPC is reaping the rewards of their divide-and-conquering: if an election were held today, they’d barely hang onto their minority government status.
Who knows, maybe we’re just riding a wave of that “Throw the bums out!” zeitgeist emanating from south of the border. (We are all teabaggers now.)
Or maybe the Iggster’s bus tour worked?
And did I just hear an anguished, tear-choked scream from beyond the eastern horizon? It seemed to be crying “eLEEEEEEEEETS!!!”
