Nanaimo-Ladysmith is one of the places where the good folks from Leadnow have raised citizen funds to pay for a riding-specific poll that was run by Insights West a couple of weeks ago (see image above).
A couple of things to consider here.
First is that this is analysis actually contains both decideds and leaners, so there is a softness to those numbers.
Second, last time around this riding was a lot closer than it was in the snapshot poll.
So it is really really important for folks who are not heart and soul decided but only leaning Liberal and (especially!) Green to think very, very carefully about NOT helping split the vote to potentially elect the Stealth-Con in their midst.
And, why exactly....
Have we decided that the CPC candidate in the riding, Mark MacDonald, is one more in an ever growing list of Stealth-Cons?
Well, it turns out that he was all lined-up to speak on a local talk show.
And then some folks, led by Tweeter/Blogger Robert Jago got to discussing calling in to ask questions.
And then, suddenly, the good Mr. MacDonald was gone from Talk Show's line up.
