Had Jim Prentice not managed to kneecap the opposition, and Danielle Smith not abandoned her principles and crossed the floor, the political situation in Alberta right now would have been dramatically different.

(Less than four months ago, this same pollster showed Prentice and the PCs in the lead at 44%, compared to 20% for the Wildrose.)
Perhaps this is reason to think that the Wildrose will be in a position to do something dramatic in this election.
