NDP First Place in Nova Scotia Election Poll; Dexter Preferred Choice for Next Premier

In addition, NDP leader Darrell Dexter holds an advantage over Premier Rodney MacDonald as the preferred choice for Nova Scotia's next Premier.

How Rodney has managed this is beyond me. He has done a damn thing to deserve those numbers.
