Tips on Beating Down the Conservative Menace
It might, but I believe Dewar, Ashton, and Singh have dropped out, so mathematically, just two more ballots. Angus walks to Mulcair, but he doesn't seem happy about it. Seems more like a move to prevent a prolonged race -- time to rally the party and support the guy in front.

Voter turnout is inteereting; if I remember about 50 thou voted in advance, 4000 here, on-line live component went AWOL.

I thought it would have been a lot more. I don't get why anyone would bother signing up to a party and then not voting on the leadership race. I could understand not doing something like this if membership was free, but you just paid $5--$25 for this. If you weren't going to do this, why bother signing up in the first place. Why not save your cash if you were going to stay home.It looks like some people are saying that Mulcair might go over the top in the second ballot. If everyone was going to roll over for him, why bother having a race?
Lesson in that for LPoC; don't expect much from online attendees.

(I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Kennedy gets the crazy idea to run again. :P) Comparing the NDP race to the Conservative 2004 race, and the turn out was better -- 97,397 votes (67,143 voted for Harper -- more than the number who voted in the entire NDP race). There were a few differences -- higher spending limits, shorter race, just three candidates, a weighted race. Wonder what exactly made the difference.
Second ballot was rumoured to be higher, but it's still hovering around 62,000. Looks like on-line voting may indeed be a bust.
Nope. Still went down.
