Latest EKOS poll puts Conservatives in the lead

The CBC News network is reporting the results of this week’s EKOS poll1 of voter intentions. When asked who they would vote for if an election were to be held tomorrow, slightly more than a third of the respondents said their choice would be the Conservatives, and 51.0 per cent said the country is moving in the right direction.

According to the poll, 33.6 per cent of those surveyed said they would vote for the Conservatives, a slight (0.5%) increase over last week’s results. The liberals were up one full per cent at 27.1 per cent, and at 16.9 per cent, the NDP were up 0.9 per cent.

Michael Ignatieff still can’t connect with enough Canadian voters to be a real threat to the Conservatives, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper continues to be denied majority territory because of weak support in Quebec and the voter split with the Liberals in Ontario.

 

1EKOS randomly surveyed 2,573 people by telephone between May 5 and May 11. The poll is considered accurate to within plus or minus 1.9 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. See CBC News story here.

  1. If the Conservative are to win, they must focus on good government.
    And gain the trust of the Canadian electorate.

  4. Conservatives need to do the following: put a conservative in the mayor's chair in Toronto. Get rid of McGuinty in Queen's park. Make changes in the national media out of Toronto. Build the brand and most importantly in the ridings build it up from the street. Too many riding associations have become local power struggles not responding to the overall drive of the party. I know ridings where liberals are holding them down and trying to hi-jack them. (real conservative)
