Six in ten (57%) Canadians think that the opposition parties should vote ‘for the Harper budget’ to avoid defeating the government, while three in ten (30%) believe the opposition parties should vote ‘against the Harper budget’. One in ten (13%) Canadians are unsure of what the opposition parties should do in this vote.
Wow. Only 13% of Canadians are willing to decide on the budget after they see it. The vast majority of the country has decided how to vote without seeing the actual document!
Faith. In. Democracy. Shaken.
UPDATE: Now that I think about it, that 13% probably includes those people who haven’t a clue. Let’s put the number at 1 in 100 who actually like to read things before voting on them.
