If an election were held tomorrow, 52 per cent of decided voters would choose the Liberals, 36 per cent NDP.
Of course, Gorden Campbell didn't run on the tax, and introduced it early enough into his term so that any backlash spent itself well before election day.
Smart move, that.
As an aside, I wonder if there is any upside for the federal Libs. in these numbers. I've been told that the B.C. and federal wing are entirely different animals, and that the provincial body has tried maintain a healthy distance from its Canada-wide counterpart, esp. during the Martin years. Still, this can't be bad news.
