Ottawa ON – With Liberals and CPC’s in a dead heat at the top, the NDP are showing great strides this week going from distant third to slightly less distant third place. They gained 2 percentage points this week and if this type of momentum continues some polls may just have to start considering dropping the word ‘distant’.
We are currently at the halfway point of the campaign meaning Jagmeet Singh has a lot of work in the next 3 weeks. He will need to engage the younger voters by campaigning after the noon hour and by offering a few new freebies if he hopes to come within sniffing distance of second place. The Liberals have lost some of the rock-star status going from Led Zeppelin down to Hedley which helps the NDP more than anyone.
As we head towards the finish, can the NDP become known as the close third, or will the hill be too steep to climb? Stay tuned.
