Mandate? What mandate?

From this morning's Mope and Wail:

In a new poll conducted for The Globe and Mail/CTV, 55 per cent of Canadians surveyed say the next government should let same-sex legislation stand, while 39 per cent would like to see an attempt made to repeal it. A further 6 per cent said they did not know.

Not to mix international metaphors or anything but when can we expect the same people who described Bush's 51%-48% victory over John Kerry as an overwhelming victory giving Bush a "mandate" to start downplaying the significance of a 55% majority?

And, yes, that's a rhetorical question.
