New Poll Shows Tories Trending Down

The Latest Poll from Decima in the evening TO Star. Nothing you haven't heard before, but moreso:

A Decima poll conducted during the holiday weekend and given to The Canadian Press today that support for the Conservatives was at 34 per cent among decided voters, or two points lower than the level reached on election day. Nationally the Liberals were at 30 per cent, the NDP at 14 per cent and the Bloc at 11 per cent.

The Green Party, with new leader Elizabeth May, came in at a surprising 10 per cent — more than double the 4.5 per cent they garnered on election day.

In Ontario, the leaderless Liberals held 41 per cent compared with 35 per cent for the Tories.

But perhaps most troublesome for the party were the standings in Quebec, where the Tories slipped to 20 per cent from 25 per cent on election day in late January. The province is where many Conservative strategists saw their best hopes for securing a majority government.

Haven't seen the full regional breakdowns, but 20% in Quebec? Does that put them in third place?

This is positive for progressives across the nation. Good news is that Decima and Angus Reid are both finding the same results:
