The most popular decision a politician ever makes


Bob Rae’s popularity is surging on word that he will be going away.

Bob Rae, the interim Liberal leader, meanwhile, jumped from 32.2 on the Nanos leadership scale to 41.5 when judged on the same qualities. Mr. Rae announced in June that he was out of the race for the leadership of his party. “Many times when leaders step down, people have a more favourable opinion of them,” said Mr. Nanos. Mr. Rae “has a little bit of an exit honeymoon.”

  1. Heck, most of them were probably Liberals who planned to support someone else in the leadership race (including, perhaps, attacking mr. Rae in print without acknowledging their support was pledged elsewhere).

  2. He’s not running for permanent leader. When did he ever say he was going away? Media, why do you do this?
