Two Weeks After Election Day New Dems Support UP - Cons, Libs, Bloc ALL DOWN

Progressive Bloggers

Two weeks after Canada's Election, the New Democrats are experiencing an increase in support with the Conservatives, Liberals and Bloc all slipping. Even the daily, relentless campaign by the MSM to attack NDP MP, Ruth Ellen Brosseau seems to have backfired.

"Over the last two weeks (a total sample of 2,000, all data gathered before the Liberals chose Bob Rae as interim leader) here is what we see:

» The Conservative Party is polling at 38 per cent, down slightly from 39.6 per cent on Election Day.

» The NDP finds 33 per cent support, compared to 30.6 per cent on Election Day.

» The Liberal Party is at 15 per cent, down from an 18.9 per cent result.

» The Bloc is at 22 per cent in Quebec; 23.4 per cent was their total on May 2."

The Globe & Mail

I think what this poll is also suggesting is that more Canadians wished they voted NDP, particularly when you look at the decline of the liberal voters and Bloc voters. We know they didn't want to vote Conservative because of the slight decline in their numbers.

Too bad, because if the NDP had gotten 33% support on election day, an increase of about 3% points, we would not have a majority Con govt. So it is really libs voters showing remorse and seeing now that voting liberal wasn't the way to go to prevent a Harper majority.

Too bad those stupid strategic voting sites, really vote liberal sites, ended up screwing Canadians up.

Great comment Jan. Exactly correct!
