Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership poll blog daveberta September 2011
Readers voted in this poll between September 12 and 16.

Over the past four days, readers of this blog have voted for their top three Progressive Conservative leadership candidates of their choice.

The results show Gary Mar placing first and Alison Redford in second with Doug Horner and Ted Morton competing for third place.

A recent poll of PC Party members also placed Mr. Mar and Ms. Redford as first and second in the contest. The source of the lists used to conduct the poll are now under question.

Progressive Conservative members will be voting on the first ballot of their leadership selection process on September 17. If no candidate receives more than 50%, the top three candidates contest a second ballot on October 1.

It will probably be a good thing if one of the red Tories does win the race. It will make the next provincial election between the red Tories and considerably bluer conservatives. Time that Albertans have a clear choice in the direction they want this province to go. Hopefully few people will put a 2nd choice if the vote goes to Oct 1.

No, it will be better if one of the bluer tories wins as the biggest loser will be the Wildrose Alliance. The people running that show cannot be allowed to get anywhere near the reigns of power. Ever. Far too extreme for 2011 Alberta.

It’s the little things that show the character of a person. Alison has tremendous class as evidenced by her response to Steven Duckette’s open letter. She showed appreciation for his wisdom and expertise and refused to lower the tone of the dialogue. Morton on the other hand clearly demonstrated the pious arrogance and distain for others who don’t share his opinions. His brush off and veritable snarl was a true measure of the man. If this clown gets the reins of premier power, we will be in big trouble.

I did not vote in this poll as it is a good example of how ambiguous wording of a poll question creates misleading results. The poll did not say “who do you want in the top three” it said “who will be”, two completely different concepts. By its wording, this poll does not reflect readers voting for a candidate of their choice. it reflects their opinion on who is most likely to be in the top three.
