Polls And Positivity
Another poll showing the LPoC up, in majority territory even, and by a respected pollster. Two years out and its meaningless and yada yada yada. Interesting, however, to speculate on what it says about Justin's "relentlessly positive" approach to politics. Probably not much. I don't think the Trudeau camp is dumb enough to mean any of that stuff. What they mean is that the leader will deliver the sunny side, while some pasty-faced dude in front of a computer will be digging for Tory dirt. Because, as Stephen Harper has yet to learn after seven years in power, you don't do your own knife work. My buddy Niccolò D once said: you hire other people to bring the pain; you just keep smiling. But believe me, Justin has those other people. If not an actual Prince of Darkness than at least a Bishop of Badass. Out there. Lurking.
