"Could be trouble"

In the face of the raging macho bravado from Conservatives, the Canadian public pours a big bucket of cold water over Harpie's head:
A new poll suggests there could be trouble ahead for Stephen Harper's Conservatives as the governing party prepares for the possibility of a fall election.

The Canadian Press, Harris-Decima survey suggests the Liberals have pulled ahead in support in Ontario and Quebec, crucial battlegrounds that will determine the outcome of a nationwide vote.

Nationally, Liberal support was up slightly to 33 per cent, statistically tied with the Tories at 32 per cent and followed by the NDP at 15 per cent and the Greens at six per cent.

In Quebec, the Liberals were statistically tied with the Bloc Quebecois, at 30 per cent and 29 per cent respectively, followed by the Tories at 24 per cent, the Greens at eight per cent and the NDP at six per cent.

In Ontario, the Liberals enjoyed a healthy lead with 40 per cent, compared to the Tories with 31 per cent and the NDP and Greens with 14 per cent each.
That, my friends, is a cryin' shame...
