Next Face Poll. Results Are In.
It was a barn burner. A dead heat.
In the end after 3 weeks of polling, only 1/2 of 1% separated Ignatieff from Dryden and only 1% separated Dryden from Dion.
Here are the results :
Michael Ignatieff : 34.0%
Ken Dryden : 33.5%
Stephane Dion : 32.5%
What does it all mean? Let us break it down for you...
First. We found it intersting that Dion received virtually as many votes as Dryden and Ignatieff since he has flown under the radar since January and has - among the three Next Face candidates - had the least amount of buzz within the Liberal Blog community. Second. We think it is safe to say that both Dryden or Ignatieff seem to represent the "new blood" that a large amount of bloggers and Liberals alike are looking for as we move towards the inevitable leadership debate. Third. No matter the outcome, each of the three would bring a new dimension to the race. Next Face would welcome an Ignatieff/Dryden showdown. Few would argue that the party and the country would be stronger for it.
Now that we have your attention, please feel free to partake in our latest poll on the right. Sure to be an interesting outcome and like a silent auction, you never know when it is going to end so vote early and vote often.
