To her detriment, she positioned herself as part of a 4 on 1 against Harper, and didn't really convince anyone why they should vote Green over the other 3 parties sitting opposite Harper.

I'm not sure of that. The four big parties all went down in votes cast during the last election (though the Liberals fell the most as Liberal voters stayed home in droves), while the Green Party was the only party whose voter turnout actually increased.

The problem is that support for the Greens is distributed thinly across all 308 constituencies, instead of tightly concentrated in one region (i.e. the BQ) or at least clustered in particular ridings (i.e the NDP).
