Poll: "Stephane Dion is not a leader"

Liblogger Far and Wide has posted some interesting numbers from Angus-Reid. The headline of the Angus Reid poll report is "Dion Attack Ad Hurts Harper More in Canada".

I beg to differ. Take a look at the last set of stats in the poll...
Do you agree or disagree with the following statements?

"St├ęphane Dion is not a leader"

Agree - 52%
Disagree - 31%
Not Sure - 17%
I don't know about you, but I'd call that "Mission Accomplished".

52% of people surveyed agree that "Stephane Dion is not a leader"... and when it comes time to vote, tell me, exactly how many people amongst that 52% are likely to choose Mr. Dion to be their leader, after having agreed that he "is not a leader"?

Give it time... one of these commercials every couple of months to ensure that the point stays in people's minds, and we'll be ready to go to the polls. Who knows... by then, that percentage may hit 60%.

And before anyone comments... yes, this is a wildly partisan post, there's no denying it. But I wholeheartedly agree that Mr. Dion "is not a leader", and I don't want him to become the Prime Minister of this great nation, Canada. In my opinion, he and his party are bad for the people of this great country.

You may well disagree with me, but I personally think that Mr. Harper is by far the best Federal leader in the House, and he'll be getting my vote in the next Federal election... and I'll also be working with one of the local campaign teams to ensure that he remains the Prime Minister.

    I hope the Tories take your advice. Keep running these ads, the are less effective each time, and Canadians are starting to develop a negative impression of the Conservatives.

    What you fail to acknowledge, I could show you a poll from three months ago that showed the same results for Dion on leadership. The first set of attack ads, coupled with an awkward start did the damage, these ads are doing nothing except to entrench the notion that Harper is mean spirited. The ads are also particularly hilarious, given the fact that Premiers represent 2/3 of Canada have rejected Harper's Senate package, which just happen to represent the provinces Harper needs to expand support.

    What does it say about a government, who has run four ad campaigns, none of which highlight all the supposed achievements or present a positive message?

    I know the left hates Harper. But at least give him some credit for being a good strategist. Do you think he's never heard about "beating a dead horse", or the law of diminishing returns ?
    For example, there was no French version of these latest ads running in Quebec. Why bother, when only 12 % of Quebecers think he would make the best Prime Minister. Not much more can be accomplished there.

    Watch Harper carefully. He's an excellent political player. If he senses there's any chance that the public will become sympathetic towards Dion, because he's being picked on, then Harper will change course.

    You Liberals need to come up with a counter-stratgy, other than "I hope Harper does blah blah blah because then it will backfire".

    If Harper is such a good strategist, why are the Tories below their election percentage??? The more you guys trash the Liberals, the more it focuses the lens squarely on Harper's failure to connect with Canadians. If the Liberals are so horribly inept, with such a disaster for a leader, that Canadians have rejected, why can't Harper gain any ground?? Good luck reconciling that objective fact, that everyone acknowledges apart from blind partisans.

    Amm, I forget where I saw it today, but we're headed back up, and are polling just slightly above our election day percentage at 37%... but of course, that poll won't hit the front pages, the media being liberal mouthpieces and all... ;-)

    Hopefully Sun Media, The National Post, Canoe or Canwest picks it up for you.

    Hey, if you get a chance and want to actually learn something, I suggest a read of the McGill University Study of the media coverage in the last two elections. You know the academic, independent study, that used simple MATH to conclude that media coverage was decidedly anti-Liberal, and more favorable of the Conservatives. Wouldn't want the facts to disturb the Conservative crutch. LOL.

    "McGill Study says that the media was anti liberal in last two elections". Jist goes ta show that schoolin' aint what it used ta be. I noticed that in the last election the media was down on the Liberal party to a degree but still maintained a pro left/liberal touchy-feely outlook on the issues. Kind of like yelling at the crook that stole your garden gnome but defending the pranks that some people perform.
