They may have held onto a few by-election ridings, but they also lost long-time NDP strongholds of Trinity-Spadina and Beaches-East York. Small gains which don't exceed the losses shouldn't be spun as success.

Pre-election, the NDP had influence to set the agenda. Now they don't. Try all you want to spin that as a success.

By not voting for the budget, Horwath called the election by proxy and therefore no additional seats should be viewed as a failure. Comments like those from Warren 'Smokey' Thomas blaming the media for not giving Horwath a break, only serve to reinforce the NDP/Horwath campaign was a failure.
