Federal Dippers have leader-defining ad out
It's good to see the Official Opposition getting a jump on things, though, as Harper's successfully swift-boated Opposition leader after Opposition leader. Now's a good time, as the piling scandals finally seem to be sticking to Harper's CONS. The Federal NDP is statistically tied with the Conservatives in polls, as of now, and have been on an upward trend for some time.
Mulcair's "honeymoon polls" show another statistical tie with the CONS in this province and Saskatchewan ("the Prairies"). It might just be a fluke, but if Mulcair maintains the momentum to e-day while fighting off CON attacks he might just align Winnipeg's federal representation with it's provincial one. NDP in the core, the north, the west, the east, and excluded from the south - if Mulcair could do that, it would be very impressive.
The CON Machine will be very rough, though.
