New polls: Conservatives strengthen lead

An Ekos poll released today, covering Tuesday through Thursday, has the Conservatives winning 36 percent of the popular vote, the Liberals 24 percent and the NDP 19.

This would put Stephen Harper's Conservatives back near majority territory.

By comparison, a Harris-Decima poll covering Monday through Thursday puts Conservatives at 34 percent, Liberals at 26 and NDP at 18. An earlier Nanos poll covering Monday through Wednesday put the Conservatives at just 33 percent, the Liberals at 29 and the NDP at 20.

Ekos surveyed 2,934 decided voters, with a 1.8 point margin of error 19 times out of 20. Harris-Decima interviewed 1,284 people with a 2.7 point margin of error, and Nanos surveyed 1,031 committed voters with a 3.1 point margin of error.
