Breaking January’s tie, Tories gain lead in new poll


Stephen Harper can sleep easy tonight. A new EKOS poll shows that Conservatives have a 3 percentage point lead over Liberals. The poll suggests that, were an election to be held tomorrow, 32.4 per cent of Canadians would vote Conservative. Liberals would grab 29.4 per cent of the vote. In other words, things aren’t looking good for Liberals, who were nearly tied with the Tories in late January. Some suggest that the 3 point lead is due to an “Olympic bounce,” and optimism about Canada’s global image. Others say it’s a sign that the unpopular prorogation issue is fading into the background.
