According to ThreeHundredEight.com, the Harper Conservatives have averaged just under 30% in the polls over the past year.
That’s about as low as Harper can go. The 30% makes up the hard-core Cons who will vote for the party no matter what.
When the Reform and PC parties united under the Conservative banner in 2004, the new party came to represent the 30%’s hard-core values. Moderate conservatives were marginalized, many forced to vote for the Liberal party.
What’s worse is that the 30% — which controls the Conservative party — now controls the entire country!
Broken voting system
Thanks to our distorted voting system, First-Past-the-Post, the Cons were able to win 54% of the seats on 40% of the vote — giving them 100% of the power.
In 2015, we need to bring real democracy to Canada. What we have now is a farce.
