"ostensibly the Official Opposition"? More like based on number of seats won in the last election, the actual Official Opposition. Silly and amateurish reporting.

Doesn't matter the polititian, good numbers to them mean people are satisfied with the government. Bad numbers mean nothing, they don't govern by polls. But this premier is in Disneyland.

John Smith, how does dropping 13 percent and being at the lowest point in 8 years, not to mention Dunderdale's dramatic free fall, bode any way well for this crew of jokers??!!

While it's not great for Dunderdale to see the numbers drop she has had some tough issues to deal with over the last few months, few of them a result of her government. Her communication has been off on a few files, which I think affected her, but overall I think her decline is the result of federal cuts and tough economic times. The province will likely be doing a lot better in a couple of years and I'd say by that time the PCs will have improved a great deal. The public rarely give governments the boot when times are good.

Lorraine for Premier ????? Give me a break. Her and her motley crew couldn't run a corner store let along government. We should call her "Miss Bailout." She wants to "bail out" the paper mill, the fishery and any other lost cause you can think off.

It is an interesting perspective but not sure it means much at this point. If this were 10 years ago any Premier would be jumping for joy if the Party was at 49%. I think the numbers during the Danny Williams years were a little unrealistic and will probably never be matched. Hard to compare the numbers today with those.

49% - Congratulations Premier and government. This figure shows that you are working hard for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians and is a percentage far more realistic than the Danny times!!

what moron thought we needed a poll for this??? and how much did that cost??Such fools!!!
- June 08, 2012 - 07:55
Seeing it's paid for by a private company Joseph what difference does it make to you how much it cost.

Only the most gullible think that they are not paying one way or another. And polls are for dogs.

Well, Ms. Dunderdale is shown to be the most popular premier in Atlantic Canada, and the PCs are leading by a large majority...sounds about right to me...
