NDP > (PC + CA)

Wouldn’t it be wonderfully ironic if the end result of a PC-Alliance merger is that the NDP polls higher than the new combined party? Polls suggest that possibility: the NDP is ahead of both parties now (but not combined) in one poll, and polls higher than the hypothetical combined party in an internal Liberal poll. Regardless of ideology, I love seeing untested ideological assertions — like the one that says that a united right wing would win — demolished in practice.
