New Nanos is same as the old Nanos for the top 3 (Con 35 / Lib 32 / NDP 16), but the Greens are up 1% to 10%.

The headline is ridiculous and these are the important numbers:

One way to measure this is to ask respondents how likely it is that they would switch their vote preference before voting in the October election. Overall, we find that 41% of respondents say they are either very (8%) or somewhat likely (33%) to be persuaded to support a different party than the one they currently intend to vote for. And a substantial portion of supporters of all parties says they could be persuaded to switch support – including half of current Green and supporters, 42% of Liberal supporters, and one in three Conservative supporters.

In other words other than bases most people have no clue who they will vote for in October. The poor numbers for the Liberals are to chastise the Liberal government/Trudeau. Recall that people are choosing between what's available so it doesn't mean they actively support the person or party they vote for. Poor numbers for the NDP are due to not being familiar with the party under Singh. 

TheNDP in particular stands to gain a lot once their platform is out given that inequality is a major concern to a majority of Canadians.

Nanos is a telephone poll, Forum and Mainstreet are IVR, all the rest are online. Nanos is a sample of 1000 across Canada, no regional breakdowns.

Every single poll of the 10 most recent polls show the Liberals trailing the Conservatives which averages out to 5.3% per poll.  

The 11th to the 20th most recent polls show the Liberals trailing the Conservatives by an average of 4.29% per poll.

The 21st to the 30th most recent polls show the Liberals training the Conservatives by an average of 3.6% per poll.

As well 29 of the 30 most recent polls shows the Liberals trailing the Conservatives.

In other words, not only are the Liberals trailing the Conservatives in almost every single poll, the Liberals are falling further and further behind the Conservatives with each new groupings of the polls.

Devasting news for the Liberals, as it is going from bad to worse for Team Trudeau, and we are now only just over 5 months away from E-Day.

What is the subtext to your post, NorthReport? Is it joy at the predicted coming Liberal defeat? Or is it joy at the predicted coming Conservative victory? And where is your detailed analysis of the NDP's fortunes?

NorthReport

Actually I was expressing my concern that opposed to much of the usual everything is wonderful in Liberal land talking points that we hear here at babble, support for the Conservatives is increasing against the Liberals in the run-up period to the election, which shows that the Liberal Party is probably not the answer to stopping the Conservatives.

Unfortunally Wood you are so blindsided by your biases you cannot see the forest for the trees, although Conservatives must lap up your nonsense.

So what is the answer to stopping the Conservatives, the NDP that are running at just 17% in the polls, or the Greens that are running at just 10% in the polls?

You present a robust public policy agenda that offers people what they need that they can't get from the Conservatives, make a compelling argument to Conservative voters that you have something to offer them that the Conservative Party does not, and then have your party win more votes than the Conservatives.

Very simple.

I think most people who vote Conservative want lower taxes for everyone including the rich, less government spending, smaller government, less immigration into Canada. and they think the climate crisis is not a problem. How can these people who prefer the Conservatives be convinced to vote for the NDP or Greens?

Unfortunally Wood you are so blindsided by your biases you cannot see the forest for the trees, although Conservatives must lap up your nonsense.

The polls also clearly show that the NDP, and Jagmeet Singh, are not gaining any significant traction with the public, and are also not the answer (or at least aren't adequately presenting the answers) that Canadians seem to want. But you conveniently ignore that, which was my point. It must be interesting to live in completely impervious disconnect from reality.

Because of FPTP, I think this question is unanswerable as FPTP often requires tactical voting to achieve certain objectives. Maybe by October the Greens will be in second place to the Conservatives and voting Green will be the only way for most people to prevent the election of a false FPTP Conservative government?  Unfortunately a voting system should most often ensure that people feel comfortable voting for their top choice but FPTP often doesn’t allow for that basic feature of democracy.

I agree that some people are jumping to conclusions. I think currently the Conservatives have roughly a 49% chance of forming the next government, the Liberals a 45% chance, and the NDP or Greens have roughly a 3% chance each of forming the next government.

Is this the closest the Greens have ever been to the NDP?  It appears the Greens have gained a couple points since the B.C by-election.  Looks like the Liberals & NDP both lost votes -- some to the Greens & some to the Cons.

Those numbers are all incredibly positive for the Greens and foreboding for the NDP: Singh trails May 3.5% as "Preferred Prime Minister", and by 10% on the issue of who has the "qualities of a good political leader". The Greens are only 2.5% behind the NDP for "Accessible Voters" nationwide (!), 0.9% behind the NDP in the "Party Power Index", and - of course - now only 3.7% behind the NDP in overall popular support. The NDP HQ & Singh must be shaking in their boots right now.

The NDP HQ & Singh must be shaking in their boots right now.

"Shaking in their boots" means that Singh and the NDP understand these trends and are quite worried. I don't think that is the case, and I don't think they perceive the problem. Remember, these are the same people who were clapping, cheering, and smiling on national TV as the federal NDp was experiencing the worst ever loss of seats in its history.

For as long as I can remember the NDP seems to have hovered between 13 - 21% in the polls  although during the Reform Party / Canadian Alliance era in the 90’s and early 2000’s the NDP’s numbers were driven down before the right-wing merger that created the Conservative Party in 2003. Currently the Greens seem to be eating a bit into the NDP’s numbers. I think very few polls, if any, over the last 58 years have put the NDP clearly into FPTP false “majority” territory.

As I said all parties go through ups and downs

Look at the BQ

Greens now only 3 points behind NDP.  Will be interesting to see whether they can maintain their momentum:
