This Ontario election may have recent precedents in Alberta and B.C. There very tired governments were up against challengers who the governing party attempted to portray as "radical" during the course of the election campaign. With some justification, in Alberta at least, as the Wildrose party of the time was indeed filled with kooks. And successfully too. In both cases it seems a late wave broke for the incumbents. In Alberta a few polls seemed to pick up the first hints of this. In B.C. everyone missed it. Is this new Forum poll the first signs of a similar movement here in Ontario?
PS. It is only Forum, I realize, though all the polls have been hovering in the same neighborhood lately.
