Coming together

Sure, it's great enough news that EKOS' latest shows the NDP all alone in second place, and with the most potential for growth of any party in terms of second-choice support. (Which in turn fits with the other polls released today showing the NDP in at worst a dead heat for second place.)

But perhaps the most striking news is the lowest showing for the Cons in any poll I can recall seeing this election campaign. With Harper polling at only 33.7% and sinking, the NDP looks to be well within striking distance of first place with plenty of time left in the campaign. And that means that the sometimes-divergent goals of stopping a Harper majority, replacing the Cons outright, and voting on principle all figure to lead to the exact same end result as the campaign enters its home stretch.
