The Angus Reid On-Line poll of September 8-9 shows the BC Liberals at historic low totals, with Gordon Campbell’s popularity at worse lows. Our ZEUS ROBBINS poll suggests the party is finished and is unlikely to recover. Dishonesty, and thereafter inaction and delay has authored their political demise.
The BC public has indicated that it is supporting the BC New Democrats in numbers that suggest a total pox on the BC Liberal house, an impatience with BC Greens, and the statement “How can this government still ask us to be concerned with the New Democrats after creating this HST mess - Gordon Campbell has got to go along with the tax.”
Our ZEUS ROBBINS poll also shows that Stephen Harper and Peter McKay’s visit to BC, the same day Gordon Campbell returned from Europe to make his ill fated announcement that he intends to stay on (indefinitely it would seem), is hurting the Conservatives’ badly and has finished Gordon Campbell’s political career anywhere in the country---and likely his political party as well. This was either bad luck or poor political decision making but BC will not bring the federal Conservatives more seats (and more likely less) if a general federal election were held in the near future.
Chris Delaney and BC Conservatives has better totals than the BC Greens in this ZEUS ROBBINS poll based largely on exceptionally good numbers in the North and Interior of the province, but like the BC Greens there is little room to grow. Some respondents who were Undecided about Stephen Harper’s federal Conservatives choose Chris Delaney and BC Conservatives, but also support the idea that Gordon Wilson was the best premier BC never had - opening the door to a return to politics for the former BC Liberal leader and NDP Cabinet Minister.
I would suggest that the established politicos (government, media, business, labour) are hoping to push Gordon Campbell off the roof, in exchange for a referendum - and the opportunity to collect HST sufficient to have collected enough $$ from British Columbians since inception of the HST - to help pay for the money advanced by the Harper Conservative government to help Gordon Campbell with his budget deficit problems and election lies.
These ZEUS ROBBINS would suggest that this is not remotely acceptable to the BC public who want both Gordon Campbell and the HST “gone” in the coming weeks.
