Is it too much to ask for a news organization to at least ask the journo to present what the polling data is showing before writing moronic statements such as:
“[Christy] Clark and [Alison] Redford were both chosen as leaders of governing parties whose popularity appears intact” (see here)
The Liberals have plummeted under Christy Clark since her initial short-lived media driven honeymoon period, highlighted in May when she barely won her by-election by 3 points (and that was without a Conservative candidate in the race).
There was also the Liberal caucus revolt that forced her to climb down from a fall election (see here) so it’s been well-known that Clark’s numbers have been horrible for a long time even before these three mid-December polls:
Angus Reid – shows Clark trailing NDP’s Dix for first time in personal popularity
Forum Research – shows BC Liberals and BC Conservatives tied
NRG Research Group – shows BC Liberals 4 points behind the NDP
The question is how QMI’s Cassandra Drudi could have possibly missed all this evidence?
The answer of course is because this is another classic case of a pre-written article manipulated to fit a journo’s story-line enabled by a compliant or lazy editor.
