Ont. Spring Election Or Not?

“It’s pretty tight between the three of them,” Forum president Lorne Bozinoff said Wednesday. “But I’m not convinced there’s going to be an election this spring.”

OK, it's just Forum, but most of the real pollsters have also put Horwath's NDP well back of the reigning OLP and Hudak's PCPO. Some have been advising that Andrea Horwath shout damn the torpedo!, eat the red pill, and send her crew into the soup,  but that didn't work so well for these guys did it?  So, while I seldom agree with Bozinoff's numbers, I am half inclined to his line of reasoning in this particular case. I think its significant that the NDP chose not to bring down the government earlier this week.  Do they think things will get better for them after Wynne presents a budget/campaign platform/bag full of goodies?  Hard to imagine that being the case.
