Cornwall Ontario – Even short campaigns have their peaks and valleys. After it became clear that Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberals were toast there’s been a huge shift, especially from the Labour Block, back to the NDP which has given Andrea Horwath and her NDP momentum.
Lots of momentum.
And in elections, especially short runs, that can be a deal maker.
The question is if it’s time for Doug Ford to stop his bus whistle tour of the province and up his game, or gamble that the breakdowns of the public support is enough. Does his campaign have a higher gear he can shift to?
Right now it’s looking as if an election were held today we’d have a minority government and depending on which way the Dachshund farts it would be either Ford or Horwath we would address as Premier the next day.
Ultimately a minority government would not be a bad thing right now although it would be fascinating to have Kathy be the straw that stirs the stick and see whether she holds her nose and would support Ford, or if her ego would allow her to support the dippers after Labour essentially back stabbed her this election?
While it’s not surprising to see the shift to Orange and the surge in numbers, the election is still Ford’s to Wynne, or lose.
