Tories' popularity rating drops, Nanos research poll shows
The Liberals have inched tantalizingly close to the Tories in popularity, a Nanos poll released last week indicates. Only a 4.1 gap separates the two parties in the poll with the NDP less than 2 percent behind the Liberals.
The Nanos poll shows 33.1 per cent of its respondents supporting the Conservative party, while 29 percent said they supported Liberals. NDP had 27.2 per cent support, according to Nanos.
The question Nanos asked 1,004 Canadians 18 years of age and older was:
"For those parties you would consider voting for federally, could you please rank your top two."
In British Columbia, Conservative support is higher.
