POLL: Conservatives Hold Small Lead Over Liberals

As election nears, the polls are tightening.

A new Angus Reid poll shows the Conservatives with a small lead over the Liberals, a finding also replicated in other recent opinion polls.

The survey gives the Conservatives 36% support nationwide, while the Liberals are close behind at 32%. The NDP and Greens are at 14% and 9% respectively.

In the previous Angus Reid poll, the Conservatives led the Liberals 38-30, so the re-emergence of the SNC-Lavalin Scandal has done little to impact voter perceptions.

Battleground Ontario remains close, with the Conservatives holding a statistically insignificant 1 point lead over the Liberals.

Here are the regional breakdowns:

BC: Conservatives 35%, Liberals 29%, NDP 15%, Greens 19%

Alberta: Conservatives 61%, Liberals 20%, NDP 9%, Greens 3%

Saskatchewan/Manitoba: Conservatives 56%, Liberals 19%, NDP 15%, Greens 8%

Ontario: Conservatives 36%, Liberals 35%, NDP 17%, Greens 7%

Quebec: Liberals 38%, Conservatives 20%, NDP 11%, Greens 9%, Bloc 17%

Atlantic: Conservatives 34%, Liberals 31%, NDP 15%, Greens 17%

The good news for the Conservatives is that they lead in nearly every region of the country. The bad news for the Conservatives is that their lead in Ontario is within the margin of error, and they trail in Quebec.

This means that even if the Conservatives are currently in a position to win the most seats based on these poll numbers, they wouldn’t win a majority, leaving the real possibility of a Liberal-NDP coalition to shut the Conservatives out of power.

How is it after all the “boondoggles”, corruption, deceit, lies, and promised threat of the carbon tax going up (not to mention other new taxes ie. on plastic, meat, etc) that the people of Canada can possibly think of the “ski instructor and part-time school teacher” running this country another term. If the Liberals and NDP form a coalition, both who have a socialist agenda, you can pretty well say good-bye to the Canada we have been accustom. In a matter of years, “the globalist from Quebec” will be setting us up to take orders and policy from Brussels (EU).

I can only guess, but all the bought out lefty media lies and corruption against – The Conservatives, are working for those who do not look into or for the truth, or they are corrupt people we really don.t need in Canada and are just here to take, they actually are working to collapse us and turn us completely into a murderous corrupt state, like Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini,Castro, Maderos now, and many more they have literally starved, tortured, imprisoned and killed many many millions of people who did not want to be hungry poor slaves to this corruption everything… Read more »

With polling numbers like these, showing a tight race, then it is time for those who support the Conservatives to stand up and be counted. Conservatives need to reach out to the general public, neighbours, family and friends and defend their support of the Conservatives. It is the only way to defeat the illegal and corrupt ways Trudeau has been rigging this election . Our future as a free and democratic nation are at stake and can’t taken for granted that Trudeau with all of his lies, deceptions and failures will be rejected and replaced as PM. And since the… Read more »
