Count 'em up

As Aaron Wherry notes, the final count from the CAPP rallies is roughly equal to the number of ralliers on both sides of the coalition showdown a year earlier. (Or one can see the count as being roughly 19,000 to 3 rather than an even split among a similar number of people). And that increase in interest from the anti-Harper side comes despite the fact that unlike last year, the immediate identity of Canada's government didn't hang in the balance.

Of course the Cons will try to keep pretending the public outrage doesn't matter. But does anybody think Harper can expect to remain in power much longer if that pattern continues?
