Commentary
Commentary - by Peter Kelly for ROBBINS Sce Research (1998)
The good news for Carole James is that she is preferred Premier of British Columbia by more than double the number of respondents who support Gordon Campbell.
....the bad news is that the none-of-the-above ("Neither") candidate beats the tar sands out of both of them.
Carole James is not resonating with BC voters, she happens to be the designate default choice out of a near mass hatred toward the incumbent premier.
This poll is (not all) bad news for the NDP. It shows that British Columbians are easily in favour of a minimum wage increase, opposed to oil tanker traffic on the west coast, have no use for the premier's television address - yet still aren't the least bit excited about Carole James becoming premier.
Despite everything going the NDP's way, it is not translating into increased support and there is a warning in these numbers: either change your leaders or prepare for another party to split off your support.
However bad the news is for the NDP, its infinitely worse for the BC Liberals. The public has no use for the leader or the party and may be starting to tune out any attempt by the government to communicate with them.
We are at a point where the public becomes galvanized and circumstances become absolutely impossible for the leader and government.
----the voter refuses to pay any attention because they have already made up their mind to throw the bums out.
