And too bummed out by Habs loss. Will post the updated trend graph some time tomorrow. Sorry.
For now, take a look at this Léger poll, which is not on voting intentions. Canadians and even NDPers overwhelming think the NDP is gaining on (and as we've seen, leaving behind) the Liberals due to Layton outperforming Ignatieff, and not due to its platform (and thus ideas). Also, a majority of Liberals support considering a merger with the NDP, but on the NDP side, there are more opponents than supporters.
