The idea of “strategic voting” is a pipedream. A great many NDP supporters said they would vote Liberal last time – as they always do – and lied. They didn’t. Furthermore, there is a great deal more that separates most Liberals and Dippers that people care to admit. I for one would never vote NDP, but would vote Conservative under certain circumstances. A great many Liberals are like me.
