Alberta election - quick analysis

Voter turnout was crap again albeit a tad higher. Liberals simply abandoned their own party for the PCs and a chunk of PCs were chicken. Nothing that Redford did... a terrible campaign with a scorched-earth strategy. It worked.  In the last few days, especially after the debate, the Wildrose campaign fizzled and seemed to hide and retreat when they should have gone on the offensive on fiscal policy.  I think they were hoping to ride the momentum from early in the campaign.

More later...

I have to agree that the WRA campaign failed to start a prairie wild fire. The election was WRA's to lose and they did. BTW I vote WRA because I truly dread what Red Ali is about to do to Alberta's economy.
