If the economy continues the way it is for 4 more years then I would give the NDP good odds of forming government next time around (as is the usual cycle of kicking out the bums when times aren't good), but this time the Sask Party will win handily. Not saying the downturn is the Sask Party's fault, just like the economic malaise when the NDP last got kicked out was their fault. Saskatchewan is such a bit player that our governments have almost no input on the state of our resource economy, it's out of our hands.
Having said that, personally I think both the NDP and Sask Party are useless when it comes to the economy based on their unwillingness to actually save when times are good.
