Yes, it’s a little early to call this, but when you have stories like this floating about, I think it’s fair to say that Dalton McGuinty did not have a good year.
Of course, with all the attention on Mr. McGuinty it’s difficult to say whether or not the campaigning skills of either Mr. Hudak or Ms. Horvath have improved to the point where Ontarians feel comfortable with giving them the Government side of that building in Queen’s Park. And, like it or not, you have to credit Mr. McGuinty with all the instincts of a survivor. But the spring of 2013 seems to be the ideal date: 4.5 more months of getting the party finances in order, plus more legislative work to earn up more credibility, plus more time for the government and the bureaucracy to face the music on its finances. I’m sure you get the picture.
And so … this poll. Two week deadline this time.
