We're not going to have an election on the Conservatives' written on the back of a napkin pass the crime bill motion. The scenario though makes me wish the LPC had some money for polling. Because I think this would be an interesting question to put to a sample group:
“As you know, the Conservative government is threatening to call an election if the Senate does not quickly pass its anti-crime legislation.
If you knew the Liberal Party offered to immediately pass more than half this legislation in October 2006, and again in March 2007, and was refused by the Conservative government both times, would this make you:
a) more likely to vote Conservative in the next election?
b) less likely to vote Conservative in the next election?
c) not change your voting intention?”
Is it still called push-polling if its true?
