Up For Grabs

Cameron Strategies has a new poll out and there’s a real Alberta stampede of voters away from Ed Stelmach. Still, the news isn’t all good for the Alberta Liberals, who can’t seem to capitalize on the “free agent voters” out there. The result is a remarkable 36% undecided rate – I don’t think I’ve ever seen numbers that high in political polls. As a result, the potential for one of those once in a generation Alberta political shifts is there…it remains to be seen if anyone is able to capitalize on it during the general election.
