Angus Reid poll: Tories lead grits by 10 points

The Conservative party of Canada has extended its lead over the Grits to ten points, according to a poll by Angus Reid Strategies done from Sep. 29–30. The online survey found that 37 per cent of decided voters would cast a ballot for the Conservatives, with the Liberals a distant second at 27 per cent. I like this poll!

The poll also found that the Tories have a 14-point advantage over the
Grits in Ontario, and that 63 per cent of Canadians think an election will make no difference to the way Parliament works.

Summary of results: Con. 37%, Lib. 27%, NDP 17%, BQ 11%, Grn. 6%

(The margin of error—which measures sampling variability—is +/- 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.)

  1. Clarification please. Ignatieff won in Parliament but is losing in the polls. The quixotic mindset of the Canadian public - reward the losers and punish the winners. Michael Ignatieff and the Liberals are Don Quixote without the romance of Canadians. Cheers.

  2. And if the Tories try to parlay that poll into an actual election public sentiment will erase that lead big time.
