ROBO-CALL NOT IMPACTING CONSERVATIVE SUPPORT

It is the economy, stupid!

That appears to be the message from Canadians in the latest poll by Nanos Research.

If something substantial is not found to link the Prime Minister or his office to the robo-call affair, it will wither and die as Canadians demand politicians worry about the economy and jobs.

Last week, I indicated that the Vikileaks30 issue is nothing compared to the seriousness of the robo-call affair but many Canadians see the Liberals  as being tarred with the same unethical brush. I wish the Liberals lots of luck in trying to mitigate that entrenched cynicism.

The Conservatives had to be betting that the average political watcher sees it all as dirty tricks, that one is no better than the other. That seems to be panning out for them.

Nanos Research conducted a telephone survey of 1,203 Canadians for The Globe and Mail and CTV between Feb. 25 and Feb. 29. The results are compared to a Nanos Research survey of 1,201 Canadians conducted Jan. 20 to Jan. 23.

The message appears to be the pot calling the kettle black.
