Hot on the heels of the Macleans poll by Innovative, comes the Decima poll for CP, saying more Canadians believe Bob Rae is the one who should lead the Liberals, rather than Ignatieff:

Published: Thursday, November 30, 2006

MONTREAL (CP) - A new national poll suggests Canadians of every federalist party persuasion believe that Bob Rae is a more electable option as Liberal leader than top rival Michael Ignatieff.

The Nov. 24-26 Decima Research survey found that Rae's perceived winnability topped Ignatieff's by a significant margin in every region of the country except Quebec. More than 1,000 respondents were asked by Decima to picture themselves as delegates to this weekend's leadership convention in Montreal

In a final-ballot showdown between front-runner Ignatieff and Rae, they were asked who they felt had the best chance to win for the Liberals in the next election.

Under this scenario, 37 per cent chose Rae and 25 per cent picked Ignatieff.

The results of the poll, which was distributed to The Canadian Press, are considered accurate within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
Decima CEO Bruce Anderson says the poll suggests Rae's winnability factor is perceived to be higher among all age groups, men and women, urban and rural voters, and everywhere but Quebec - where Ignatieff would get 36 per cent support and Rae 25 per cent.
Ignatieff also led in the poll among self-identified Bloc Quebecois voters.

Wow. That's one of the most profoundly illiterate posts I've ever seen in a website associated with a major newspaper. The Gazette should be ashamed.

I wonder what your real agenda is.Exactly what are you trying to sabotage? All I can say as a life long Liberal, if Ignatief wins (because of Quebec) I will never vote Liberal again.

Guh... Th elınk ıs not workıng here. I just spent half an hour tryıng to get the blog ın an Istanbul ınternet cafe wıthout success whıch proves that :

A) I need to stop beıng ınterested ın polıtıcs that much.
B) They got the shıttıest major newspaper websıte ı ever seen.

Is ıt just a technıcal problem, or you wrote profanıtıes and they kıcked you out ?

The 2nd Ballot results were just announced. Dryden goes to Rae. Kennedy goes to Dion.

Dion has to get 80% of kennedy's delegates to get ahead and end the drama. It's not over yet.

However, Ignatieff already looks defeated. Can his organizers save the day? They only have 30 minutes.

Third ballot. Dion does it. Rae releases his delegates. Ignatieff needs 60% of Rae's delegates. Impossible?

We need to note that none of the front runners are indidvidually strong. The Liberal Party needs a platform of unity.

Everyone has to pull together. Can Dion do it?
