Harper won his majority with only 3% more of the votes than the Cons got in the last election. 

Funny, eh?  The “broadly electable” Harper received barely any more votes than that failure O’Toole.
Its the nature of Canadian democracy... with at least 3 viable parties in every riding and the first-past-the-post selection method, even a small change in the popular vote can cause large swings in electability.

And Harper got ~40% of the popular vote when he won a majority. O'Toole got ~34%. A difference of 6% of the popular vote.
