88% - It's enough, but still ...

This is obviously good news for Paul Martin ... but I wonder if it gnaws at him that it's not quite as high as what ol' Jean got at his review?

Ah, the good old days. Hard to imagine that it was only five or six weeks ago when we even cared how popular Mr. Martin was within the Liberal party. How quickly Jean Brault has change their fortunes.

Yup. Just goes to show how things can change.

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say PM would get an even higher score now, with an election in the offing; not that this necessarily helps him - I hate to quote him favourably, but Duceppe was quite right to point out that all the standing ovations Mulroney got from his caucus in the time before he left didn't help a whole lot.

Anyway, Martin's popularity in the LPC doesn't matter a lot now ... but if he doesn't deliver a majority, and especially if he loses (!), he'll be gone post-haste. If Harper doesn't get at least a minority - GONE. It won't be pretty watching the face of whichever leader's losing in the last few days of the campaign ...
