My favourite #EveryElectionProject entry thus far. What a gripping tale!

HI Eric

I'm sure you've discussed this but forget your conclusions:

Given the weak state of the Liberal brand at the provincial level, is is possible/probable that the "natural" level of the Liberal Party is around the Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff level? That the only reason they won in 2015 is due to the personal charisma of Justin Trudeau? Meaning that, if they were to replace Trudeau before the 2025 election, they would do worse than if he were to stay?

Do the polls cast any light on this?

And, as always, thanks for The Writ. It's so much more thoughtful than most of the commentary out there.
