Even with Trudeau’s ongoing blackface scandal, the Conservatives are struggling to capitalize on the struggles of their rivals.
A new Nanos tracking poll shows the Conservatives lead over the Liberals shrinking to a mere 1%, as the Liberals show a slight recovery since their Nanos poll nadir a few days ago.
The Liberals had hit what Nanos called possibly a ‘four year low’ in his poll, dropping to 32%, and trailing the Conservatives by 5 points.
But now, the Conservatives have dropped from their peak of 37%, and are down to 34.3% in the latest Nanos poll. The Liberals are at 33.1%, the NDP are at 12.8%, the Greens are at 10.6%, the Bloc is at 5.8%, and the PPC is at 2.9%.
What this shows is that even when the Liberals lose support, the Conservatives are struggling to capitalize. And take note of that 2.9% PPC number. That could easily be the margin in many close ridings.
There are also interesting numbers in Quebec, as Nanos’ tracking has the Liberals at 37%, and the Bloc now in second at 26%. The Conservatives are in third in Quebec.
