Remarkable comments from Paul Martin, on the recent poll numbers: (via Yahoo/Reuters):
"That's my vision and it's one that I'll be asking Canadians to accept. Now if they don't, they don't. I didn't come into public life simply to get elected," he told a news conference in Vancouver.
So: What are the numbers?
IPSOS reid has the Grits at 34%, the Tories just four points behind: " after a week of campaigning the bottom has fallen out of the Liberal strong-hold in Ontario. If an election were held today the survey shows Canadians would elect a weak Liberal minority.
But, the daily tracking from CPAC / SES still shows Libs on top by 11 point, with NDP gaining strength. (interesting to note 53% say it is "time for change")
It is a horse race.
Betting may not be legal -- but at least one internet bookmaker has placed the odds, Martin in the lead.
