BTC: Possibly the most dramatic shift in public opinion in the history of modern polling

by Aaron Wherry

No doubt those grand populists who denounced this betrayal of the Canadian people will be soon filing amendments to their previously stated opinions.

BTC: Possibly the most dramatic shift in public opinion in the history of modern polling

  1. [sniff, sniff]

    What’s that I smell? A rogue poll?

    The question is… which one is rogue?

  2. Both of them are online polls. I don’t take online polls that seriously because they are too easy to game. I think the majority of Canadians support abortion being available but not as easily as it is now.

  3. Don’t forget that the other Reid, Ipsos-Reid, had support at 65% for Morgentaler receiving the Order of Canada – and it was ironically commissioned by Canwest, where most of the supposed “massive” opposition to Morgentaler is coming from.
