Peculiarly it seems like voters like the Conservatives for economic issues and Liberals for environmental. Economy apparently trumps environment as the Liberals are coming in 2nd place.

There is a silver lining to all this, Jack Layton of the NDP (aka the party I wish was down here) is just managing to beat out Stéphane Dion (by 2 points). I don’t mind Dion, but he is no Chretien and the fact that he is coming in 3rd behind Harper and Layton underlines this.

    >the poll results about layton beating dion by 2 points are interesting — but also irrelevant. it matters not what the voters think, but everything rests on which party ends up with the most power in the (probably eventual) coalition government.
