One different necessary issue differentiating 2013 from now’s that the BC NDP is now not an unknown issue; they’re now the incumbent authorities, and have been probably the most fashionable in all of Canada too.
Evaluate that to 2013 the place regardless of the BC Liberals equally having low approval rankings, the BC NDP then was basically an unknown amount having been out of presidency for therefore lengthy. To not point out that for a lot of middle-aged and older voters, their final recollections of an NDP authorities have been the scandals of the Glen Clark years, its seemingly that many undecided voters broke for the BC Liberals on election day to go along with the satan they knew, so to talk.
And as @allthecanadianpolitics factors out, Horgan is far more charismatic and likeable than Adrian Dix (to not diminish his tenure as Well being Minister which has been nice), whereas Andrew Wilkinson is way much less charismatic and likeable than Christy Clark (who whereas I despise politically, I’ve to grudgingly admit is a gifted politician). To not point out that from what I bear in mind of 2013, Clark managed to maintain the dialog through the marketing campaign in regards to the BC Liberals’ precise insurance policies, whereas just about each coverage announcement for the BC Liberals this 12 months has been overshadowed by controversies about their candidates.
So whereas I’m not able to chill out simply but, numerous the components that led to the 2013 BC Liberal victory simply aren’t round now.
