Iffy closing in on John Turner

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff is now only two points behind former leader John Turner for second place in the WORST approval ratings for a Liberal leader in history, according to an Angus-Reid poll released yesterday. Ignatieff came in at 16%, just barely behind John Turner's lowest score, which was 14%.

Of course, John Turner's record of 14% was thought to be the all-time low, and stood for some 25 years... until Dion shattered it in May of 2008 with his new record all-time low of just 10%.

Which means Ignatieff is now just a mere six points ahead of Dion's LOWEST EVER score. So much for being the "saviour" of the Liberal Party of Canada. I think Dion's numbers were even better than these during the whole coalition fiasco at the end of 2008, weren't they? Are we on the verge of yet ANOTHER record setting "leader"? With his near constant stumbles, despite the valiant efforts of old pros like Donolo, Ignatieff still can't manage to avoid tripping over the bar... the bar set so low, it's just mere inches above sea level.

And Canadians aren't known for backing a losing horse.

    And to think they parted the red sea for this guy...

    A timely metaphor...

    Yes, but who wants Bob Rae to replace Iggy? Iggy is good news for the Conservatives.

    I'm more concerned with the PM's numbers being at 29%, than with Ignatieff being at 16%. Dion was at 10% at one point, and led his party to a respectable seat total. Even if it was an all-time low for the Liberal Party of Canada.

    if losing 26 seats ( which works out to 27% of their previous seat total)is respectable then where do I sign up?!

    If Iggy is so bad, why are all of you Conservatives so afraid of him?
    With all the time and effort you all spend bashing him, I'd say you don't see him as useless at all.
