NANOS shows the NDP down a bit; the CPoC up a bit, but not in Ontario, where they need to be if they want their majority. Because who cares how high they soar in Alberta, as long as the people out there only get to vote once?
As for Jack's visit to the alleged "rub and tug"; I suspect if anything the story will only work to his benefit, this late in the game. People will see that the CPoC (and of course we all know this stuff originated with the CPoC) is getting desperate. Remember the Rob Ford campaign. At a certain point, the stories about Ford's improprieties were all dismissed as the kind of garbage you would expect under the circumstances.
And in the end, this story is roughly equivalent to Jack's getting pulled over at an intersection where people often speed, but found to be not guilty of speeding.
