Conservatives Maintain Lead Over Liberals In New Poll

More Canadians also open to voting Conservative than for any other party.

The latest Nanos Poll shows the Conservatives maintaining a lead over the Liberals.

Here are the key numbers:

Conservatives – 34.8%

Liberals – 29.2%

NDP – 15.6%

Greens – 11.5%

Bloc – 4.7%

People’s – 1.6%

In addition to the lead in direct voting intention, the Conservatives lead in terms of the most potential for further growth.

46.1% of Canadians say they would ‘consider’ voting Conservative. By comparison, 44.7% say they would consider voting Liberals, 37.5% would consider voting NDP, 35.9% would consider voting Green, and 8.9% would consider voting for the People’s Party. In Quebec, 34.5% say they are open to voting for the separatist Bloc.

For a long time, the Nanos poll had shown the Liberals in the lead, even when other polls showed the Liberals trailing the Conservatives. Recently however, there has been a noticeable shift, with Liberals support dropping to around 30% (give or take a few points in either direction), and the Conservatives maintaining a lead.

While the election is still far off and nothing can be taken for granted – especially with Trudeau’s Corrupt Media Bailout attempting to rig coverage of the election – it’s clear that there has been lasting damage to the Liberal brand, and the Conservatives have an opportunity to capitalize on that.
