New poll shows Liberals catching up to Tories

Conservatives’ double-digit lead shrinks to 3 points

by

Just over 3 percentage points separate the Conservatives from the second-place Liberals according to the latest EKOS poll. Now at 31 per cent, the Conservatives have seen their 10 point lead over the Liberals (27.7 per cent) shrink considerable over the past month. Still, the news isn’t all bad for Stephen Harper and co. Support for the government has rebounded from last week’s low of 36.6 per cent—40 per cent of Canadians now believe the Conservative government is moving in the right direction. The poll had NDP support at 16.5 per cent, while the Greens finished fourth with 11.4 per cent.
