Emerson wasn't known to people in his riding

According to a poll report by the National Post done in October 2005 Emerson could not have won without the Liberal brand name.

Only 25% of the people in the riding could identify Emerson.
90% couldn't name a single accomplishment He had since being elected in the riding.
He had only a 34% approval rating while 53% said they would vote Liberal.

The riding has only once voted in a Conservative back in 1958.

This should end all the B.S. about how Emerson is so well liked by the people in the riding that he won based on his own appeal.

wow, sucks to be Emerson. Looks like that whole "I'm arrogant, but I'm arrogant for a reason" kingpin line of argumentation falls through. He didn't switch because it was best for his riding, he clearly switched because it was best for himself.
