“A poll that surveyed nearly 1,000 Albertans earlier this month found the United Conservative Party have a large lead over the NDP and would win if an election was held today.

The Mainstreet Research poll has the UCP with 56 per cent support among decided and leaning voters, which translates to a 28-point lead over the governing NDP (27 per cent).

“The UCP, led by Jason Kenney, has a substantial lead over the governing NDP and interestingly enough, they also lead among every single demographic that’s out there, which was a surprise,” Mainstreet Research vice president Joseph Angolano said.

The lead largely comes from Calgary (30 points) and the rest of Alberta (46 points) while Edmonton remains competitive for both parties.”

You would think that 40 years of Conservative rule would be enough of a reminder that maybe, just maybe, corporatism isn’t the way to go?  Naaah. The people of Alberta currently seem to think that cutting services and giving more breaks to corporations is the way of the future.

Please take a look down south to see exactly what that get the average voter.

If the UCP (united conservative party) takes the next election, will the average Albertan celebrate the lack of access to public service?  Thank their lucky stars that the oil companies can continue to line their pockets with our resource revenue? Like what?

These people want the party that walked out of the legislature on an abortion bubble zone vote to represent them?  Because preventing a bozo-eruption from the religious fringe that inhabits your party is more important that representing the people that elected you?   But hey, it was just an crucial vote affecting the female half of the population, so no big deal because in the UCP, females ain’t shit.

I’m unimpressed with the UCP and the mewing stampede back into the hell that is conservatism here in Alberta.  :/
