United Conservative Party will obliterate Notley's NDP

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

A new poll from Mainstreet confirms what Albertans knew all along: The United Conservative Party (UCP) would obliterate Rachel Notley’s NDP government.

If the Alberta election were held today instead of 2019, the newborn UCP would hold a majority with 57 per cent of the vote province wide, compared to Notley’s 29 per cent.

The numbers are even more encouraging when you break them down by region. The only place the NDP hangs onto to any support is Edmonton, where, as Ralph Klein once said, there are too many socialists and mosquitos.

While it’s nice to see them in writing, are these poll numbers a surprise to anyone? Not to me. But they might disappoint the Notley friendlies in the mainstream media.

How many stories did we read about how Jason Kenny would never become PC leader? He won with nearly 76 per cent of votes.

How many stories did we read saying that the UCP would never unite? They united with a 95 per cent vote in favor.

How many stories are we reading right now about how much the centrist vote will matter in the next election? The Alberta Party is polling at 9 per cent.

There is a real disconnect between the mainstream media and everyday people in Alberta who, based on these recent polling numbers, are just not buying what the media party is selling them.

Ron Voss… I guess you didn’t read my comment following that one… I will support the UPC but I am very very leery about who’s running it

FLAT EARTH commented, "What I remember most and foremost about Brian Jean and Jayson Kenny was the fact that they (along with others but not Derric Fildebrandt) came on national TV to criticize the good people of Alberta for chanting “lock her up”. What I remember is Brian Jean holding a press conference the Monday after the rally criticizing those who chanted ‘lock her up’ and even went so far as saying those people aren’t welcome in the Wildrose Party. His press conference was carried by local TV. I recall Kenney making a tweet saying that chanting lock her up isn’t a nice thing to do. I don’t recall him appearing in national TV. However, I do recall CPC leadership candidate appearing on national TV grovelling to the media.
That one event seems to be your sole determinant of who to vote for. I remember your favourite Derek Fildebrandt tweeting that he found social issues to be boring and that they didn’t make it to his list of 100 priorities, and yet, nonetheless, voted in favour of ‘progressive’ social issues. We won’t find a perfect candidate.

Regardless of which I will support the UPC in the next provincial election regardless of who wins the leadership…
Not all leaders are created the same and Derric Fildebrandt would be a good possibly a great leader of that party.

“In that case Jamie, that would leave the most of us in a position of not voting and the NDP once more being elected…”

Quite possibly true, RON VOSS. But the number one thing that is strangling my Country right now is legislation and regulations based on this climate change horseshit, and, gutless, dishonest politicians. And I well remember many on this site (wrongly) taking Scheer’s opposition to a carbon tax as evidence of his opposition to the former – yet he was barely out of the gate when he proved he was the latter by his stand with turdo la doo on the Paris climate accord.

If Kenney and Jean don’t clearly and unequivocally speak out against it now, then you can bet your bippy that this economy-strangling regulatory onslaught will continue on their watch; albeit a bit more slowly perhaps than under Red Raiche.

So, unless I have a Libertarian candidate to vote for, I will indeed stay home on election days. I refuse to contribute to Canada’s continued demise by putting my money on the fast horse or the slow one.

The great pity is this: the majority who will vote for Kenney or Jean feel just like you and I do about this climate change horseshit, but makes no demands on the Party or candidates for clear opposition to the nonsense.

What I remember most and foremost about Brian Jean and Jayson Kenny was the fact that they (along with others but not Derric Fildebrandt) came on national TV to criticize the good people of Alberta for chanting “lock her up”. Our verbal criticisms of government elites is one of our rights and voicing that displeasure is not a privilege but the right of freeborn men and women.!!
I am wary of any politician who would chastise the people who have been put through so much in such a short period of time by a runaway rogue government by simply chanting harmlessly “lock her up”.
Brian Jean is an invertebrate and Jason Kenney who abandoned constituents to seek opportunity in Alberta before his tenure was complete would grow his fourth or fifth chin at our expense… Neither one of these individuals are fit to lead the province of Alberta.
The three individuals that are running pretty much mirror each other’s vomit looking to secure their future in Alberta… What we need is someone who stands out a little differently and who is a libertarian who isn’t afraid of the media.!
Basically we need a vertebrate would serve the will of those people who elected him or her as opposed to telling us what we’re going to get by voting for them on a campaign platform.!
Yes we need to know what they plan on doing when they get to office but more importantly they need to loyally serve those who put them there.!!!

It blows my mind that red deadmonton are such left wing. Good God, can’t they see the complete destruction this evil witch has caused. You bunch of idiots, look at your damn bills with the carbon tax, for example, it’s been 3 months our furnace has not been used, and yet, my monthly bill is no less than $47.00 including $2.45 for carbon tax on delivering and all the 8 charges the gas company tacked on. I haven’t used NO natural gas. And evil trudoop still gets his damn gst amount as well.
You are right, redmonton is living in a bubble and they have no idea what the hell is really going on in this province. And the traiteress msm are FULLY COMPLIANT WITH WHAT THIS EVIL WITCH IS SPEWING EVERY DAY. I just can’t listen to global, ctv, and of course, cbc is never put on in this house. Let’s hope that voters in redmonton smarten up and see what these lying, stealing parasidic ndpees have done to our once beautiful province and vote them out. Hopefully, I pray.

OK then… But as I suggested during the early days of this race, I still wish Kenny would take the time to do some push-ups every morning… Or push himself away from the plate more often…

Move the legislature to Red Deer.

BTW – The Herald and Journal aren’t fit for the outhouse , like buying used toilet paper from communists…

JAMIE MACMASTER commented, “Well, I don’t live in Alberta. But if I did, I wouldn’t cast my vote for any politician who didn’t have the balls and honesty to stand up and say that this entire man-made climate change scare is nothing but a big scam that makes parasites wealthy and impoverishes the nation/province.”
In that case Jamie, that would leave the most of us in a position of not voting and the NDP once more being elected, because I doubt that any Alberta politician is openly willing to say that man-made climate change is a hoax. While Kenney tends to waffle a bit on this issue, Jean in his past life as CPC MP was strongly in favour of taking steps to address climate change and he was comfortable with his own Wildrose party policy on the Environment that affirmed that. If Fildebrandt enters the race, he may take such a position as a way to distinguish himself from the other candidates. At a conference I heard Candice Malcolm say that politicians are followers. The whole idea of a “leader” as a “follower” is an oxymoron.

I bet you Kenney doesn’t have the balls or the honesty, and neither does Jean.

Notely will nudge more people to vote UCP with her own policies. As she gears up for further destruction, it will anger more Albertans.
Mr. Klein was a very wise man!

My prediction still is Notley will not be fighting the next election. She will resign late 2018 or early 2019 to go to a plum job in BC, leaving some schlump like Brian Mason holding the bag during the 2020 election.

This will better enable her to obtain her regressive excellence award, the Order of Canada, sooner.

I’m sure I will hear the cheering in BC on election day. I may travel for the big party.
Can’t wait!
Rachael better start packing her bags. I only hope she leaves the country.
