Polls Indicate Canadian PM’S Star Is Waning Alongside U.S. Republicans

Posted on Thursday, November 02 at 08:57 by jensonj
One poll released on Oct. 18 found that both the Liberals and Conservatives would each receive 32 percent of the vote if elections were held today, reaffirming similar results in another independent poll two weeks earlier. The drop in Harper’s popularity appears mainly due to a foreign policy that appears too aligned with Washington and the deaths of 34 Canadian soldiers this year in Afghanistan as part of the U.S.-led war on terrorism. Some observers believe that once the Liberal Party chooses its new national leader in early December, Harper’s government could be ripe for toppling. http://news.bostonherald.com/international/view.bg?articleid=165214&format=text
