Like it or loathe it, we’re into another election cycle — the fourth one in the last seven years. Which of the following best describes your attitude going into this election?
I’m excited about the prospect of an election: it’s another chance to finally toss Harper out! 40% (299 votes)
An election was an absolute necessity: between prevaricating on Crime bill costs and Bev Oda’s creative editing, government was lost and the opposition had to bring down the house! 35% (266 votes)
I’m hopeful that this election will bring about real change — if not in the make-up of Parliament, perhaps in the leadership of the main parties! 20% (154 votes)
I’m frustrated we’re going to the polls again — we’re spending $300 million on an election that won’t change anything! 12% (93 votes)
I’m underwhelmed about facing another election: sure, Harper’s made a hash of things, but the alternatives don’t inspire me much either! 12% (87 votes)
Total voters: 756
