On the other hand, there is some good poll news today: guilt by association
is dragging the Ontario Liberal Party down.
TORONTO -- The McGuinty government is suffering from guilt by association, suggests a new Toronto Sun/Leger Marketing poll that shows the provincial Liberals trailing the PC Party. The poll found support for the Conservatives has increased to 37%, up four points in just a month, while the Liberals have dropped eight points to 36%. The NDP held steady at 19%.
Craig Worden, associate VP of public affairs for Leger Marketing, said the decline in provincial Liberal support can be attributed, in part, to damning Adscam testimony affecting McGuinty's political cousins.
Now there's an understatement. If only McGuinty wasn't cautiously siding with the federal Tories at the moment, or the first act of the McGuinty government hadn't been to enact scheduled elections that make the next vote on his performance still some ways distant, this might be more comforting...
