HARPER MAJORITY LIKELY?
After our difficult re-election efforts they are politically spent
Will we get another minority Stephen Harper Government?
Will we do away with the Liberales CF Pension Claw Back?
And put a wonderful majority PC Government back on the track?
There are several questionable political seats
That could turn the tide when the voters all meet
Let’s give all Canadians a real true victory voter treat
With a huge PC victory and a Librano landslide defeat!

HARPER MAJORITY UNLIKELY
Jack Aubry: Canwest News Service
OTTAWA — Canadians predict Stephen Harper and Hillary Clinton will win in national elections this year in their respective countries, but only one in three thinks the Conservative prime minister can break through and obtain a majority government, a national poll reveals.
The survey, conducted exclusively by Ipsos-Reid for CanWest News Service and Global National, also shows strong support – four of 10 Canadians – for the idea that Americans will elect their first black president in Barack Obama. Thirty-seven per cent believe the U.S. will elect another Republican president in the Nov. 4 vote.
But for Ipsos-Reid vice – president John Wright, the real story behind the predictions lies in the virtual tie that continues between the Conservatives and Liberals. A Dec. 21 Ipsos-Reid horse race poll showed the Tories at 35 per. cent and the Grits at 33.
The poll questioned Canadians on the political horizon for 2008 by asking them if they thought there was a good or bad chance of something happening.
Two-thirds (63 percent) believe that Harper will be re-elected.
The poll shows 56 percent say there is a good chance that Americans will elect their first female president in Clinton.
The survey of 1,001 adults, based on telephone interviews December 11 – December 13, 2007, is considered accurate within 3.1 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
