A new Harris/Decima poll released October 11, shows the Conservatives recovering some lost ground as we head into the last two days of the election.
Nationally, over the last four nights, the Conservatives lead with 35%, followed by the Liberals at 25%, the NDP 18%, the Green Party 11%, the BQ with 9%.
In Ontario, the Conservatives are at 35%, the Liberals 32%, NDP 22%, and the Greens 11%. While, in Quebec, the BQ is at 41%, Conservatives 23%, Liberals 21%, NDP 8%, and Greens 5%.
The latest results represent 1,273 interviews conducted Tuesday through Friday with a margin of error of 2.7 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
This suggests that, should these numbers hold through to Oct. 14, Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party will win a strong minority or wafer-thin majority, and leaves Stéphane Dion’s Liberals fighting it out with Jack Layton’s NDP for official opposition status.
