Hey Cons...

You wanna know why you're stuck at 30-something in the polls? It's because there's simply nothing about you that appeals to the remaining 65 to 70% of the country.

But I don't even think you're even trying to raise those numbers anymore. Your stuck with about as much as you'll ever gonna get. Yet you've still got keep kicking up the volume of bile-rhetoric about "elites", lie about gun control support, the troops, climate change, whatever. Why? Because your rage-addict base gets used to the dose and the fix just isn't the same anymore. And sitting at barely minority territory, it's YOU that needs them coming back for more because, if not, they'll grumble off to rehab at Timmies or the garage over a smoke and a six-pack of 50 instead of a polling booth on election day. And then they'll be nothing but unvoting voters and invisible and useless to you (see how that works?).

That's why you'll beg, borrow and steal to get your TV station so like their US counterparts, your base can PICC line the crazy-rage 24/7 and you'll never have to worry about them being too pissed to vote and leave you in Opposition.

Come to think of it, your worst fear is their ultimate fix! At this point they'd OD on a Liberal government. The NDP or Bloc sitting in the government seats would be rage-nirvana.

Yeah, you definitely need them more than they need you.

Unvoting voters? Do you measure them the same way you measure unreported crime?
