Stay Christy, Stay!...(v4.0)


Going little deeper into the R. Matas/J. Hunter Globe story from yesterday...

...A poll from Forum Research Inc. released Thursday provided fresh evidence that the B.C. Liberal brand is in trouble.

Mr. Cummins, for the first time, is as popular as Ms. Clark while significantly fewer people disapprove of the job he is doing, according to the poll.

NDP Leader Adrian Dix remains with the highest approval rating among B.C. political leaders, with 38 per cent of respondents approving of the job he is doing as Leader of the Opposition.

Twenty-eight per cent of the respondents approved of how Mr. Cummins was doing his job, while Ms. Clark’s approval rating was 26 per cent.

The telephone poll of 1,069 B.C. residents was conducted Wednesday. With a margin of error of three percentage points, 19 times out of 20, the two political leaders were considered to be statistically tied in second place.

However, 60 per cent of the respondents – including 23 per cent who identified themselves as B.C. Liberals – disapproved of Ms. Clark’s performance.

By comparison, both Mr. Cummins and Mr. Dix had a disapproval rating of 35 per cent...

Ms. Clark's 26% approval rating in that Forum poll must by an 'order of magnitude'-type typo.


Because the commenter figured it must really be 2.6%.

On an aside here RossK, the surprise that Christy Clark hadn't paid her dues to the BC Liberal Party, even though she's the Leader and the Premier... well there was that other surprise, the one related to Joe Trasolini not running for the BC Liberals but for the Opposition BC NDP in the By-Election...

According to Elections BC there are three Trasolini, TWO going by the name of Joe Trasolini, but there is a definite dividing point on the Calendar as to WHEN Joe moved away from the
BC Liberals Tent...
