New Federal Poll: What Did I Just Say?

From Canadian Press:

A new Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey found the Tories deadlocked with the Liberals in public support, with no signs of momentum. But the poll confirmed the Liberals' troubles in Quebec as voters were casting ballots in three ridings there.

Conservatives had 32 per cent support, compared with 29 per cent for the Liberals. That spread is covered by the poll's margin of error, which is 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Huh? Huh? Sorry to interrupt everyone's PANIC ATTACK. But if you like, keep spanking yourselves.

PS. The Star puts Green Party support in this poll at 13% (enough to win seats?), and their running average of the past three weeks puts both Tories and Libs at 31%. Not too shabby.

Don't know if you caught it, but your blog was on Newman's show.

Didn't see it; just heard. Apparently I saved Canadian Liberalism. Boo Yah! Boo Yah!

You can watch it online after 7pm :)

Liberal support is that high only because Dion hasn't opened his mouth for most of the summer. Once he starts up again, the Liberal support will drop, no doubt.

Actually, Liberal support has been relatively stable.

...You should be more worried about the fact that Harper, under the most fortuitous of circumstances, isn't doing any better.

Nice deflection, though.

There is plenty to panic about. The Conservatives are number 1 in Quebec.

Anyway, big city lib was mentioned on CBC's Politics with Don Newman on Tues. 20 odd minutes in.
