CORNWALL Ontario – According to threehundredeight.com Liberal John Earle has fallen behind the NDP into third place. The website run by Eric Grenier uses formulas that combine popular poll results.
It shows that not only is current MPP Jim McDonell a shoe in to return to his seat; but that Liberal Grant Crack in Prescott Russell is now in trouble. Of course the only poll that counts is the one on June 12th; the day of the election.
Looking at the poster on Patronage Prince Mr. Earle’s office window it almost seems that the local Liberal brain trust think their best option is run former MPP Jim Brownell’s face; but surely this will be confusing for the few old loyals that look for the former School teacher’s name on the ballot?
One PC local insider laughed and told CFN “off the record” that the McDonell team is hardly working on this one feeling that there’s no chance of either Earle, his hair (which is leading the candidate in internal CFN polls) or Elaine MacDonald the NDP candidate no matter how many signs she plasters around town.
This has been one of the most quiet elections since I’ve lived in Cornwall. Chatting with people and asking them what the most important issue was the answers have consistently been:
Get rid of Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals.
A message that may be permeating. According to three hundred eight the Conservatives are in striking distance of a majority victory polling from 55 to 63 seats if an election were based on poll results.
Could the scandals and unpopularity of Ms Wynne be hurting well liked and talented MPP’s like Grant Crack of nearby Prescott Russell? It should be an interesting month as we head towards the polls.
What do you think dear CFN viewers? Will Mr. Earle fall into fourth behind the unknown Green Party candidate? Will he finish ahead of his hair in popular voting? Will MPP McDonell exceed 70% of the popular vote and will his helper Eric Duncan come out of hiding behind the walk in fridge at the bakery they are using as an office? Luckily for Mr. McDonell Mr. Earle hasn’t been able to explain how cutting 100,000 civil servant jobs will make it harder to grow 1 million jobs in the province as PC Leader Tim Hudak is trying to foist on the
sheep Ontario voters.
