Mulcair ended up first, and Topp ended up second; that was, sort of, expected. It was either going to be Topp or Nash in second.
But no, Nash is fourth! Behind Cullen! That was surprising. Dewar didn't even manage 10%, so much for "grassroots"....
I don't get the feeling that Cullen will make it beyond third, but we'll see... it's all down to whether Topp can consolidate the "traditionalist" vote. Will Nash and Dewar supporters support Topp? Where will Cullen's supporters go once he's eliminated?
Second ballot will tell all. Nash is still in but won't be on the third. That's where this will be decided - the third ballot.
Oh yeah, and first ballot turnout? 65,108 - just below 50%. BOOYA!! I called it. Low turnout! It could increase on the next ballots - I'm sure it actually will - but I called it, mo'fo's. Whose your daddy?
