    I despised Notley's NDP
    Im curious what you actually despised? What tangible thing did the NDP do that negatively impacted you?

    My youngest lost her speed therapist because the NDP decided that some private speech therapists were no bueno. She was assigned a speech therapist at school who, after about 30 seconds of assessment, decided that she was going to outgrow her lisp and her struggles with the letter R. So then we found another speech therapist.

    Yippee.

    Oh yeah, they told Nexen to fuck off. So there's that.

    True blue voters are mad at things out of their control. Vote in NDP to spite.

    This is fucking brilliant idiocy.

    Time to put my head down and go numb for 4 years of more NDP rule. My lord.
    That poll is misleading. But I won't be surprised if increased number people pick NDP to do health workers a solid.

    Conservatives in this province can't even agree what the word conservative means. The infighting is the real enemy.

    Did a substantial number of the religious conservatives die of covid? Hopefully, so we can remove that portion of the fringe.

    Would Peter Lougheed policies be too left for Conservatives today?

    @davidI , you are right I mis-read your first post, but still, even the people who make that 338 website would tell you that seat-count projections are not reliable this far out from the election. It doesn't take a PhD in Statistical Modelling to know that.
    This is when a "voting intention" poll would actually be a reasonable indicator of public sentiment.

    Have you tried being more "collaborative" with the federal government? That woulda helped. - kert.
    Didn't even need to be collaborative. Simply spending the money made available by the federal government for Covid spending (while whining about not getting enough money from the federal government in transfer payments) would have been better, yes. Could have done it while still bashing them.

    And "collaborating" by using the federal government paid for tracking app instead of paying for a provincial app that was both less used and worse would have been better by default, too.

    You were paying for a private speech pathologist and they took their certification away?

    Thankfully, none of it affects me directly since I now live in Espaņagrad and now only suffer Spanish big-government.

    From an outside perspective though, the NDP grew the government a lot, grew spending a lot, which in-turn discouraged a lot of the entrepreneurialism and low-tax policies that actually differentiated Alberta from the rest of Canada.

    At the same time, I saw a lot of their "progressive" policies as more virtue signaling than the implementation of effective and efficient governance to correct some of the obvious issues with Conservative Party environmental regulation/oversight, climate policy, and modernization of public infrastructure.

    Their handling of the pipeline file was very weak in my opinion, particularly when they were willing to do so many things to appease the Feds (which they still did, without obtaining anything in return).

    To be clear, I don't think Stelmach or Redford did a great job either - but at least they didn't pile on as much debt or grow spending unsustainably without much in the way of positive ROI.

    I don't think it's anything other than a sentiment indicator. It's doubtful JK will even be leading the UCP into the next election so it's quite obvious this isn't actually predicting the next government - but certainly reflects that the UCP have allowed the NDP to be strong competition compared to any other period (I still view 2015 as nothing but Albertan's biting off its nose to spite its face).

    This would have made all the difference in public perception. For sure.

    The last couple years has been a fantastic example of how pandering to people who were never going to vote for you anyway is a bad political move.

    Rookie mistake from JK

    The problem for JK was that a big portion of his base are morons that couldn't strategic vote their way out of a wet paper bag. Think rural yokels. These people weren't and aren't willing to support good covid policies.

    They were getting some sort of funding from the gov't, that program was ended so the speech therapist lost her job there.

    The NDP then hired a bunch of speech therapists for the schools, and in true socialist fashion they hired too few to do the job properly.

    I'll take blue over red any day of the week, thanks.

    Trudeau Sr. fucked up this country real bad, it took decades to recover from his disastrous spending.

    Also the ndp is a travesty for AB. It's mind boggling that people support jagmeet for PM

    If we get an NDP Premier AND an NDP Prime Minister, then we'd finally have enough social license to expand oil production and build export pipelines, right?

    RIGHT?!!?!
