A new poll out today conducted by Abacus Data has the Harper Conservatives way out in front of the other parties with an 8-point advantage.
Given all the trouble with polls over the last few years, who knows what to make of it.
Interesting to see if other polls in the near future replicate these findings -- then that would spell trouble for Mulcair, Trudeau and May, at least in the short term.
At the least it should be a bit of wake up call for anyone thinking Harper is sure to get the boot in this Fall's election.
Yesterday, Senator Mike Duffy dropped what pundits are calling a "political bombshell" in Ottawa, claiming that Stephen Harper was well aware of the arrangements made to end the controversy around Duffy's inappropriate use of his expense budget.
Duffy says Harper was "in the room" when Harper's former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, arranged to cover the $90,000 in misappropriated funds.
Harper's chronies in Cabinet are now out in the media saying Duffy needs to stop laying blame elsewhere and take full responsibility for the spending scandal. But now it is clear that Stephen Harper is as much to blame for this mess and he needs to take responsibility as the leader of his party and of the Canadian government.
Sign on to our petition demanding Harper take responsibility for the role he played in the Duffy spending scandal.
