The Dion Momentum

Thanks to Hammering Jow (sorry, no link) for pointing out this latest CTV story. According to the latest Strategic Counsel poll, Stéphane Dion seems poised to become the favourite "second choice" for delegates to the Liberal leadership convention. The sample is impressive: 1,622 delegates.

Read the whole story here . Here’s an extract:

"As the top second choice, it's former cabinet minister Dion who is showing the most momentum going into this week's convention.
Dion, a Quebec MP, has a substantial lead in that area over the other candidates, finds the poll of 1,622 delegates.
Here are the rankings of the four top candidates on the second choice question (the percentage point change from a September poll of 1,000 Liberal party members is in brackets):

• Dion: 23 per cent (+10)
• Gerard Kennedy: 13 per cent (+5)
• Bob Rae: 10 per cent (-13)
• Michael Ignatieff: 6 per cent (-6)"

This could a long Saturday...this could be a great day...

Wag on,

Interesting to see that Kennedy as a second choice was going up before he really even got to his nation announcement.

We Alter Boys like Gerard. His take on the Nation Notion could prove to be a wild card.

We stand by Stéphane. But GK is our second choice.
