Safest Conservative MPs

Here is a list of the top 10 safest Conservative MPs as measured by their margin of victory in the 2004 General Election. These are the MPs that we need to do a lot of the supplemental campaign tour to bolster the parallel Leader’s tour in the next election.

Kevin Sorenson – Crowfoot – 90.40%
Monte Solberg – Medicine Hat – 85.68%
Bob Mills – Red Deer – 84.20%
Leon Benoit – Vegreville¬óWainwright – 84.05%
Ted Menzies- Macleod – 83.82%
Dale Johnston – Wetaskiwin – 83.80%
Rob Merrifield – Yellowhead – 83.24%
Myron Thompson – Wild Rose – 82.09%
Jason Kenney – Calgary Southeast – 76.96%
Brian Pallister – Portage-Lisgar – 73.09%

There are, of course, a lot of other ‘safe’ seats. These are just the top 10. Any margin of victory in excess of about 55% is generally ‘safe’, especially given the current Liberal meltdown.
