The tortoise and the hare

Usually I do not pay much attention to poll-iticing.
That said the latest poll is interesting…
“In my memory, I can never recall both major political parties being under 30 per cent of the popular vote — ever. To me, that’s the stunning part,” the veteran pollster told The Canadian Press….@
Who knows perhaps the NDP’s turn at the big brass ring is just around the corner.
The NDP has always been a patient & principled party,slowly but surely building support. Once won to their side supporters tend to be loyal & life long . And unlike the Liberals the NDP understands the importance of being consistent & principled. Or to put it another way the NDP does not trade in the currency of political expediency for short term electoral gains…most of the time
Slow & steady wins the race…
With Jack Layton at the helm the NDP continues to go from strength to strength. Particularly since the NDP adopted the strategy of positioning themselves as the only real alternative to the Tory’s.
Indeed the Liberals and Conservatives are & always have been but two sides of the same coin.
On a side note the NDP’s strategy of playing for keeps rather than playing second fiddle seems to have instilled a new found confidence in the party.
All of which explains why, backed up by a number of polls, Jack Layton of all the party leader’s, is hands-down the most trusted and respected.
Hell Jack has even inspired me to do what I normally don’t do,that is vote.
