Commentary
Question 1:
John Horgan and his BC New Democrats have a solid (6%)lead. His personal numbers are good with room to grow while BC Liberal leader Christy Clark's are trending down along with the Liberal brand.
Where I believe we differ in this RSR ROBBINS Survey, from mainstream polls is on Vancouver Island support. We have the BC NDP at history highs of (50%), while pollsters for 308 site say it is in the very low 40 percentile.
We have a higher Undecided in the North and Interior (Kootenay) region of (17%). The BC Liberals are averaging (36%) with the BC New Democrats at (32%).
The very populous Lower Mainland (including Langley, and Fraser Valley) region reflects a (5%) lead for the BC NDP over the BC Liberals.
The BC New Democrats are dominating Vancouver and Burnaby City with near (50%) in both.
Question 2:
We thought we would fuse BC Public Education with a relevant political matter dealt with in the federal political realm. About one in three Decided respondents believe that racism, antesemetism, islamophobia should be given more attention, while two thirds do not.
Question 3:
Current support for the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion is at (36%) or nearly (40%) Decided. It has been at this level for a long time. Opposition is at (50%) and nearly (60%) Decided.
There is an increase in hard feelings in the North and Interior of B.C. about the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Many people do not understand why a proposal through an entire City and through a packed Port (Kinder Morgan) would be approved over the Enbridge proposal in the North of BC.
The Kinder Morgan approval is not helping the Liberal brand in the North and Interior, and Christy Clark did not distinguish her brand from the federal one following Trudeau's announcement with agreement that her five conditions (for approval) had been met.
Question 4:
Legalizing marijuana with the Glen P. Robbins proposal to charge (20%) tax on its sale to pay down Canada's debt gets some rave reviews in this RSR ROBBINS Survey.
More respondents who support BC Conservatives (53%) than those who support BC Liberals (47%) also support legalizing of marijuana with the Glen P. Robbins 'commonlawmaker (R)' touch of tax.
Question 5:
British Columbians are done with the Canadian Senate. It is coming to the point where it is difficult to take Canada seriously.
Question 6:
Our question on the Conservative Harper Supreme Court of Canada Judicial bench featuring 45% Jewish judges from a representative population of 1%.
It is intended to ask the question, did no one in Harper's Cabinet find this a little odd? Did the press report on it?
Was Canada's financial position in 2008 during the big bank meltdown and bottoming of interest rates so bad that some type of deal was struck with debtholders to ensure the justice system favoured banks and lenders over Canadians?
This question has an answer. In 2010 after much deliberation, the Liberal Government of Ontario made an arrangement with banks under revised court rules, permitting courts to kick out claims notwithstanding de minimus standard (for advancing claims to trial)on basis of a much lesser standard.
The Province of BC AG made no such change, they permitted the Law Society to enforce an underground economy in the province of fraudulent interest rates, sanctioned by BC lawyers and removed any barrier of scrutiny at Land Titles of Offices in the Province for registering mortgages.
With the removal of scrutiny over moneylenders operating in BC (Reg.) accountability went out the window, now all hell make break loose.
Question 7:
About one in five British Columbians who voted in the last provincial election and say they intend to vote in this one find racism a major concern in their life today. (Just less than one in four Decided).
Question 8:
British Columbians like things simple. If you are a judge with constitutional authority, wouldn't it make sense you actually knew the Constitution particularly well? The people get it, those responsible for selections don't appear to. Why not?
Question 9:
At this juncture as respondents are sure to labour, we come back with a Christy question and she doesn't do well. Only (28%) have full trust and confidence in Christy Clark.
Our Decided number for Christy is just under (32%), well below Angus Reid's numbers in the past weeks of (37%).
It will be interesting to test our (60%) resistance to Christy against polls and surveys to follow, particularly with one recent poll (different from a survey)suggesting a (24%) Undecided.
That poll was commissioned on behalf of PostMedia owners of the Vancouver Sun and Province newspapers.
(24%) Undecided -- what a great opportunity for those in the advertising business eh?
If BC Liberals find themselves in a no win position will they hold their dollars to keep powder dry knowing that campaign finance reform is coming, must come, and is one of many reasons why they might lose, and if the BC Conservatives make a seat breakthrough would challenge more Liberal inclined BC Liberals for Opposition with Christy Clark gone.
Question 10:
John Horgan has some pretty good numbers. It is true that as many British Columbians are against him as for him, but those for him are at (40%), which is nearly equivalent to party numbers in the winning zone.
John Horgan's Decided support is nearly (50%) provincially.
Question 11:
Question 11 really tells a story with only (36%) concerned about electing a BC New Democrat provincial government and nearly (60%) against the BC Liberals.
Question #12:
Without any doubt, a majority of British Columbians don't see any upside in Vancouver's real estate market.
Is today's concern over real estate - tomorrow's nightmare?
Well over (50%) are expecting a market collapse or a sharpe decline in real estate values.
Question 13:
Unlikely question 13, affirms what we had already established from question 12, that, British Columbians were pessimistic about the real estate market, and that this so called housing affordability issue, which I prefer to hybrid as housing affordability - largest real estate fraud in modern history..will be front and center stage in this 2017 BC Election.
Who would have guessed?
Question 14:
Question 14 provided insight into a more developed sense of blame, should the real estate market "implode". A push question but a fair one following canvass of the issue. The point here is that between the BC Liberal blame plus the Justin Trudeau Liberal blame, then add in foreign investors, voila, (60%) of blame.
Question 15 evolves the question of trouble in the Vancouver real estate market impacting on the entire province - to measure it in context of "concern" up against the two budget giants, health care and education. Here homeownership, lack of any regulation or oversight involving Canadian Interest Rates under the Canadian Interest Act - trumps both education and health.
The real estate problem has value to British Columbians. Hiding from it through an entire election process is going to seem really weird to people watching us, don't you think?
And people are watching our government..very closely.
Question #16:
We can see based on this question that Christy Clark and/or her party's perceived indiscretions, (about matters apparently within their newly developed discretionary capacity (based upon what authority no one is quite sure of-except the Conflict Commissioner apparently)), that the corporate political fundraising and Christy's extra $50,000 income from her party....is more a concern to British Columbians than "Today's Economy", which has its own issues.
Question 17:
The environment gets a big bump in this grouping winning the most responses as subject of concern. When you take the concern with respect to corporate donations in combination with concern about social welfare and disabiity you have a total of over (40%) supporting these two. When you stitch one in five supporting union jobs you have (60%).
Which one of these three are the BC Liberals going to support - the Environment - after backing PM Trudeau's Kinder Morgan?
Are you able to see what is going on here, right now among the BC public?
An RSR ROBBINS Survey of respondents in the Province of British Columbia. This is not a random poll of people by vote bot, or through Internet - the scientific nature of which has room for debate. A Survey is a known list of people. There are many statistical factors which may go into the calculus of producing a Survey as a poll, but there is not a specific algorithm which a poll demands. The science apparently depends on one calculation.
Nevertheless, we have seen our surveys be more successful than some of the major powerhouse mainstream pollsters during the recent U.S. Presidential elections.
Our firm predicted President Trump's vote total the closest (by 4 basis point). Those closest to RSR ROBBINS were not close at all.
We are predicting our margin of error at (2%).
So based on on John Horgan and BC NDP total we assert the BC NDP is at (40%) to (44%) (raw).
All other questions we claim to (3.5%). Time Period is February 27, 2017 until March 11, 2017
