With less than a year until election, numbers suggest social issues could create a crack in Campbell’s armour.
With less than a year before the next election, the provincial New Democratic Party does have a chance to break the B.C. Liberals’ commanding lead in popularity, a new poll concludes.
“There is a very clear path to victory for the NDP,” pollster Greg Lyle said in an interview.
It is, however, a steep path. Support for Gordon Campbell’s B.C. Liberal Party has remained comfortably solid for so long, a third term has appeared inevitable when voters go to the polls on May 12, 2009.
