Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador awoke Thursday to a massive sucking noise as amateur pundits, media commentators, and newsrooms across the province realised they’d read way too much into a single poll on Wednesday.
A new Abacus Data poll shows the Liberal are actually on track to sweep the entire House of Assembly. The results contradict a lone poll by Forum Research that had the Conservative miraculously closing the gap with the Liberals.
Never happened, as it turned out. Every other poll taken during the campaign lines with the latest Abacus poll. What’s more the behaviour of the Tory and Dipper campaigns confirms what serious political watchers already knew: Paul Davis and Earle McCurdy are desperately trying to save the furniture in the face of a potential Liberal tsunami.
