Tight elections are, simply, not Alberta's thing. After decades of Conservative blowouts, the NDP's unlikely 2015 win was ... also a blowout, and then the united Conservative Party returned the favour. You have to go back decades to find a provincial election that was any kind of race, and yet with two months to go, polls show the UCP and the NDP basically tied, within the margin of error.
How did that happen? Has Rachel Notley been able to take advantage of Danielle Smith's many gaffes and scandals? Are voters simply immune to weird Covid stuff from the UCP by now? Could this maybe, possible, be an election actually decided by policy and not partisanship?
