I keep saying that most Liberals should be Conservatives ... some Liberals should be New Democrats.
In a great post, Blunt Objects demonstrates how Liberal voters moved to the Right in today's Saskatchewan election. With only 9 Lib candidates running for 58 seats, supporters of the Sask Liberal Party moved their votes to the defacto 'Conservative Party' here and gave a big victory to Brad Wall.
Thanks Liberals! :(
Sask Liberals & Leader Ryan Bater
What can I say? You fucked up.
Here's the results of tonight's vote in the 9 ridings the Liberals ran in, organized by vote totals:
That's right - 80% of voters were lost in those nine ridings since the 2007 election. Overall, 94% of Liberal voters in 2007 did not vote Liberal in 2011.
That's ridiculous, especially considering that Bater lost voters compared to 2007, when he got 13.36%. So much for the Lizzy May strategy.
Heads should start rolling. Now.
(PS: "Nathan Jeffries" should read "Saskatoon Meewasin", sorry about the mix-up.)
