h/t to Far and Wide for pointing out this new Maclean's Poll which puts the Libs ahead for the first time this year:
The Grits had the support of 33 per cent of respondents nationally, while the Tories had 31 per cent, the NDP had 15 per cent and the Green party had 10.
Even more good news out of Quebec, where the Tories are down to 12 per cent of the vote. If an election were called tomorrow, you could probably kiss all of their seats in the province goodbye.
Furthermore, the NDP tactic of turning their fire on the Liberals while playing footsie with Harper appears to have backfired. Correct me if I am wrong, but this is the lowest level of support for them that I've seen in a poll for a long time. Word to Jack Layton: Canadian's won't vote for a party that seems content to lead the opposition. You want to be the government, you have to go after the government.
Within the margin of error and etc., but still better than being behind. And I am beginning to think that Harper's Tories could be beaten if the Libs selected a headless chicken as their leader. However, I still doubt that Iggy could win.
