On majority support

If there's anything surprising about the latest polling on coalitions, it's that a majority of respondents have come around to supporting the idea even with the two largest federal parties going out of their way to delegitimize it.

But it shouldn't be news to anybody that the Cons' attacks have proven a failure in the long run. And with a coalition led by Jack Layton looking like a particularly popular possibility, Michael Ignatieff may soon have to revisit whether he's willing to lead a coalition - lest his party's supporters decide that one led by Layton is preferable to another term of Stephen Harper in power.
