The debates will be pivotal.

Briefly – Ignatieff’s “better then expected performance” on the campaign trail (which was actually predicted by Maclean’s Andrew Coyne – who alone among reporters seems to have felt this) has helped narrow the gap from anywhere from 7-11 points, depending on pollster. As Warren says, Harper hasnt exactly run a smooth campaign. The debates will be key for Ignatieff to keep up his good performance and show that to a wider audience. If that happens, I believe you’ll see the polls start to narrow to low single digits.

    The poll results just don’t seem to make any sense. Where in the world are they finding the people to answer them?

    I myself am just waiting to hear Gilles calling Harper a liar, over and over again, about the coalition (2008 vs 2004). This alone should make for a very enjoyable TV night!

  • My fingers are crossed that Iggy will shine in these debates — or at least, not say anything stupid!
