I'm 100 percent certain that is true, but Sask and Alberta make up a very small part of Canada population wise, and he's going to need the big boys to win. Fortunately he's doing very well with the younger (under 65) in bc, and pretty good with the younger in Ontario so far. But - that's not going to be enough unless he bites into the older gen a little more. As the saying goes, the elderly always vote in historically high numbers.
Well that certainly will be the liberals pitch. "join us to defeat the evil right" has been a standard battle cry for them for 50 years and even more so since the CPC was born.
the thing is - it's the younger people FROM the ndp who are moving to the CPC if polls are to be believed. And not just a few. Pollivre isn't pulling liberal supporters as much as he's pulling the ndp believe it or not.
And i think the libs are going to have a problem with "red flu", where their supporters stay home in droves or vote for a fringe. We saw that in ontario last provincial election. Whereas CPC supporters will be VERY motivated to turn out.
Its' weird times, that's for sure. The older gen is pro liberal? The kids are joining the cpc from the ndp? Did you know last election most of the increase the PPC got came from former Green party voters? (i kid you not). Canadian politics is in a weird state of flux right now.
