February Poll Soup: The New Normal

We’ve had a fair chunk of polling out this month and the results are fairly consistent – a slim Tory lead, similar to what we saw in January, at the height of the prorogation backlash. The notable exception would be Environics, which had the Grits in front earlier this month.

Of course, every pundit has spent the past year talking about Harper’s Olympic bounce. I’m not sure I really see the logic behind it – it’s not like Alex Bilodeau is a Tory candidate, and we’ve seen a lot less of Harper over the past week than we usually do. But maybe that’s the point. Perhaps with Canadians ignoring politics, the anger over prorogation will fade.

We’ll find out over the next few weeks.
