In Alberta last year, all the public polls had Danielle Smith and the Wild Rose cruising to a majority. On election night, one columnist even filed a piece on how she won. Meanwhile, in the last 10 days of the campaign, Redford was growing by as much as two points a day. Who knew? Her pollster, Greg Lyle, who saw her majority coming. Even when she was clearly surging in Calgary and Edmonton in the closing days of the campaign, no one else saw it, least of all the journalists who were supposedly covering the campaign.
