I, for one, love Kory's Propaganda Poll

Several top bloggers have pointed out how bad this QMI/Leger Poll is. Whether the derision is expressed as exclamations as to how execrable the "poll" and it's "analysis" is or as somewhat more dignified rebuttals; the tenor is the same. This poll is an embarrassment to pollsters everywhere.

I love it! QMI takes it's orders from Kory Teneycke. Mr. T takes his orders from the PMO. The PMO takes its orders from the Dark Lord himself. And Mr. Angry always follows the Rovian maxim: "Attack your opponents strengths". (go to page 4).

So... If Harper wants to message that, contrary to the evidence of our lying eyes, the Liberal Express is a flop it must have been more successful than we thought. Yes it was a lame attack. But the key point is that the Liberal Express was seen as worthy of vigorously attacking. Which in topsy turvy tory Canada means the Liberal Express was a big success. I think I see blue skies through all that forest fire smoke over Calgary this morning.

That is my poll analysis. It is worth what you paid for it.

You have a point.

Sorry about all the smoke.

I doubt that the smoke is your fault.
But if it is... the Mounties might like to have a word.

I think the real test will be when parliament returns in the fall. Will the Liberal express have listened to the people, or was the communication one-way from them to the people? I don't think you can determine that from a poll this early.

I think the Liberals usually slide over the summer, but they haven't this summer. Maybe this is a sign it'll pick up in the fall.
