American Press: Harper's "Star Fading"

Several American publications have a story, detailing the Harper slide:
Canadian Conservatives who hitched their wagons to the White House are finding their popularity fading with those of their allies in Washington.

The drop in Harper's popularity appears mainly due to a foreign policy that appears too aligned with Washington and the deaths of 34 Canadian soldiers this year in Afghanistan as part of the U.S.-led war on terrorism.

Some observers believe that once the Liberal Party chooses its new national leader in early December, Harper's government could be ripe for toppling...

Nothing new here, but it is interesting to see the outside perception.

On December 4th, if the Liberal convention passes a motion which even hints are reopening the Constitution, Harper's star will start rising.
