I literally haven't talked to one single person who wants to postpone the election. There is absolutely no reason to.

Postpone? The election isn't scheduled until October 16, 2023.

This poll was about whether people want an early election to happen this fall. Most don't.

That good because if Trudeau calls one (and we know he wants to), he'll pay a still pentlay at the ballot box for it.

I don’t think he can afford to kick the can down the road.

I’m feeling pretty confident we’re headed into a highly inflationary environment in very sort order, and BoC is going to have to make some pretty serious rate moves to contain it.

He’s going to try to lock in before shit hits the fan even if they are worried about the polls.

I'm thinking September.....just after the Nova Scotia provincial election......but before the "4th wave" lockdowns....

When has he paid a penalty for anything at the polls? If he calls an early election it’s a pretty easy walk into majority territory.

Seems like he can afford that penalty. The CPC is doing really poorly in the polls. I just saw an article saying that Canadians prefer Singh over O'Toole too.
