Or at if its moved the dial at all in the latest Abacus poll its been in the wrong direction; the LPC is a wee bit ahead in this one. I'm not entirely surprised. People might agree with the government re the Niqab, but still see through the rhetoric and perhaps resent the attempt to get them riled. Or they may see the Hiqab as a 3rd tier issue that won't move their vote one way or another.
As for the LPC position on our ISIS mission, one day I think people will come to look upon Justin Trudeau as the Wayne Gretzky of Canadian politics, who saw not where the polls were, but where they would be on election day.
