While a number of recent surveys have shown Tories on the March across the Maritimes, the latest by Bristol Omnifacts Research indicates that the Liberals appear pretty safe for the time being, certainly within New Brunswick, although their "support is lower than it was at the outset of either the 2004 or 2006 election campaigns."
Liberal support stood at 46 per cent, Conservative support at 38 per cent and NDP at 13 per cent in the poll.
Furthermore, the same poll shows a six point Liberal lead across Atlantic Canada:
"Right now, [said University of New Brunswick-Saint John political scientist Don Desserud] I see the poll pointing to a stand-pat scenario," he said, or a repeat of the 2006 election result in which the Liberals won six seats in the province, the Conservatives three and the New Democrats one."
There. I feel better now. Do you feel better now?
