It would seem that the Conservatives, their bloggers, and their special media friends would want you to believe that. Ordinary Tim Horton’s-drinking Canadians are supposed to love Harper. Harper is a POPULAR leader in this estimation. (Side note: Yesterday I did my own oil and filter change on the car and then went and bough a Timmies coffee – still not a fan of Harper).
How about this though? Harper, being so super-duper popular, won a whopping 37% of the popultar vote in the last election! He’s not unpopular like that confused old John McCain! But wait, what’s that? McCain’s miserable, failing campaign is still garnering 40%+ of the popular vote south of the border! Stephen Harper is a paper tiger, he’s less popular than John McCain.
