There's a new Nanos poll reported in the Star. It shows the Liberal's gain (at the expense of the NDP) to be increasing.
OTTAWA – The federal Liberals have moved sharply ahead of the Conservatives in Ontario, in part by siphoning off support from the New Democrats, according to a new poll.
Liberal support in Ontario clocked in at 44 per cent while the Conservatives have 31 per cent and the NDP 14 per cent, according to the poll, done for the Star and La Presse by Nanos Research.
The Green party stands at 10 per cent support in Ontario.
"The key is the steady decline in support for the NDP with those former NDP voters moving to the Liberals," Nik Nanos said yesterday.
Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff narrowly leads – 33 per cent to 31 per cent – Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper among Ontario voters as the person they favour to be prime minister, the March 13 to 18 survey shows.
Nationally, the Liberals have the support of 36 per cent of voters, up from 33 per cent in February, and the Conservatives 33 per cent, down from 34 per cent.
The NDP stands at 13 per cent support, down from 16 per cent last month.
