Yesterday, we noted how Ron Obvious, he of the Globe And No Longer Empire Mail, got pushed by Socred/BCLiberal operative Greg Lyle to lower public expectations on polls to come showing the Dippers surging in the wake of the first leaders' debate last week.
We also noted Mr. Lyle's previous tag team efforts with Clarklandian wizard Mike McDonald.
And then, once those Dippers surging polls came out we got the back end from the good Mr. McDonald courtesy Mikey Mike in the Province:
Christy Clark’s campaign war room has issued an urgent warning to her Liberal party troops on the ground:
New polls showing the NDP with a big lead are to be taken seriously. Don’t count on the pollsters to be wrong again. You’re going to have to work for every vote to win.
“This campaign is a dogfight,” senior Liberal strategist Mike McDonald wrote on his daily campaign blog Tuesday.
“I do not discount the potential of an NDP victory. They are tough adversaries.”
The warning from the party brass comes after a Mainstreet Research poll put John Horgan’s NDP on top with 44 per cent of decided votes, a full 10 points ahead of the Liberals at 34 per cent...
Given all this, will the Clarklandians double down and continue to smear Horgan for actually fighting, for real.
Will they throw caution to the windscreen and start blaming Dave Barrett for creating ICBC?
I reckon we'll have the answer about halfway through tonight's debate when the digital warriors of the Klout Klub start bleating.
If you get my drift.
Don't know about you but I sure do enjoy watching the local puffed-up punditry hoist themselves up onto their own evils of insider access petard.
