“With the Liberal party emasculated and the left wing vote split among three parties, the Conservatives should be well into majority territory by this point in the campaign. It should be a cake-walk.
However, while support for the Conservatives has, at times, touched on the benchmark 40 per cent level typically required for a majority government, the party’s numbers remain stubbornly in minority territory.
The reasons are not clear, but it does appear that Canadians are not yet comfortable with giving Stephen Harper a majority mandate.
The most recent Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll has 43 per cent of respondents reporting they have a positive impression of Harper, which is 10 points lower than the beginning of the campaign. (Liberal leader Stephane Dion’s favourable impression remains level at 32 per cent.) Nationally, the Conservatives have the support of 37 per cent of respondents, while the Liberals are at 24 per cent, the NDP at 18 and the Greens are at 10 per cent.
What is it about Harper that results in a less favourable impression of him the more Canadians see of him? Didn’t they like the nice fluffy vests? The musings about family life? The professed love of piano music?
It seems that Canadians are uneasy about a possible mean streak that Harper is keeping hidden, one that could result in a governing climate along the controversial Mike Harris PCs in Ontario in the 1990s.
Harper has flashed evidence of such a trait in his battles with the media. And — locally at least — there is evidence that dissent will not be tolerated. Resistance, even among his own party, is apparently futile.
After Radio-Canada broadcast an interview Sept. 18 with Sudbury Conservative candidate Gerry Labelle, he issued a press release the same day recanting some statements, offering a “complete retraction” and pledging his full support to “Prime Minister Stephen Harper, his cabinet and this Conservative government.” Labelle’s statement read more like a capitulation than a retraction.” http://www.thesudburystar.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1222777
