If everyone who said “I like the NDP but they’ll never win so I’m voting Liberal”, actually voted @NDP, they would actually win.

In most elections the NDP gets a minimum of 15-20%. You only need about 30% support to win and the Liberals usually get 25-40%. #cdnpoli #NDP
Its simple math that if only about 1 in 3 Liberals voted NDP, the NDP would actually win a federal election. If half of Liberal voters backed the NDP they’d be in a guaranteed majority government. #cdnpoli #NDP
And that’s not even counting the Green vote who could be inclined to vote NDP for reasons like the NDP opposing oil pipelines, investing in renewables and campaigning on electoral reform. #cdnpoli #NDP
Also even if the Liberals remained in power, electing more NDP MP’s ensures that if the government is a minority that the NDP will have huge bargaining power for important issues like electoral reform (look at the BC Green’s influence in the BC minority government now). #cdnpoli
I’m really getting tired of this defeatist rhetoric coming from Liberals and NDP’ers alike saying that we have to elect the Liberals to avoid the Conservatives winning. No we actually don’t. Canada is not a 2 party American system. #cdnpoli #NDP
