Myself, I found it in a tweet from Glen McGregor of The Ottawa Citizen.

Thanks Jeff.

Wasn't it Glen McGregor that tweeted a previous EKOS polling result which was incorrect?

Yeah, same guy. But I don't think it was incorrect so much as incomplete data. Probably the same happening here. Frank Graves seems to be suggesting that on Twitter, that the sample size McGregor's referring to would have been small.

Only one way to settle this: we need to see your poll, EKOS.

Latest polling.

Rather than compare EKOS to Forum, or Environics to Angis Reid, compare Ipsos Reid to Ipso Reid, or compare Nanos to Nanos to see what trends are showing, and who has them momentum. Polls in isolation don't tell much and can be quite misleading.

Given that Spector was Brian Mulroney's chief of staff 'back in the day', I have to wonder if his apparent delight at the decline of Trudeau and the Libs (and by implication his cheer-leading for the rise of the NDP) is not part of that larger Conservative strategy to ensure a two way race in which sufficient blue (and/or nervous) Libs are enticed into the Conservative fold to secure another term for Harper & Co.

Watch out for the trends

"Canadians are more likely to think that a majority government of any kind, regardless if it is a majority Conservative government or a majority NDP government, will have a more positive effect on the Canadian economy than a minority government would when asked about outcomes in the next federal election. However, Canadians are more likely to think that an NDP government will have a more positive impact on the economy (47%), versus a Conservative government (32%)."

Ignore the numbers and just read that second sentence as a more-or-less statement. More likely, more positive, that's the language that pollsters should speak, not specific numbers and outcomes.

Taken at face value, those sentences point to two fascinating trends that could shape the outcome of the election.

First, the efforts by the Conservatives to demonize Liberal leader Trudeau are working but not in the way the Conservatives expected. For many voters, the attack ad message "Justin - just not ready" is being interpreted as "I wonder if that Mulcair fellow is ready." Second, campaigning on a soundly managed and healthy economy is proving to be a castle

made of sand for the Harper Conservatives, reinforcing the idea of a closer examination of Mulcair.

Pollsters and political operatives are well aware that voters tend to move quickly and en masse in an unstoppable wave.

Spector wants a two party system (he's dead set against PR) that leads to both parties moving towards each other to the centre, a Canadian version of "Butskellism". Harclairism?

I don't buy Harper being around after the election. If either the Liberals or the Conservatives becomes not viable after this eleciton their leader will go. The leader of the other will likely go as well in an attempt to allow for a union against the NDP -- but it won't be Harper. A Bernard Lord-type figure could easily become a leader able to bring those parties together to be a slightly right of centre alternative to the NDP. This is possible when you consider that The Liberals and Conservatives may find that under their present leadership they cannot work with each other. While they get their act together they can -- without supporting the NDP -- decline to bring it down if the NDP has a plurality.

The Liberals cannot support another Harper government. Even Harper knows he cannot be supported by the Liberals. This means that a new incarnation of those two parties might be required if they want to work together. At the very least their leaders would need to change in favour of somoene from outside. This is a more credible way of seeing the Liberals and Conservatives get together than a simple support form the Liberals for Harper -- as that will not happen.

If the NDP come seconf -- and the other parties want to stop them then some remaking of those parties will have to happen -- this is the only alternative to the Liberals propping up the NDP or the current Conservative party.

With Writ Drop on Horizon, Two Front Running Parties Tied: Harper Conservatives (33%, +5) Close Gap on Mulcair NDP (34%, -1) as Trudeau Liberals Tumble (25%, -4)Tory Rally Due to Rising Approval Rate (44%, +3) and Plummeting Liberals, Child-Care Benefit Cheques Have Negligible Impact

With the Federal Election Writ drop on the horizon, the Harper Conservatives have reversed their recent slide and have closed the gap with the Mulcair NDP producing a tied vote between the two leading parties, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Global News.

The poll analysis indicates the Tory rally is largely a function of declining Trudeau Liberal fortunes and the concurrent rising approval rates for the Prime Minister and his government, and not the much vaunted government Universal Child-Care Benefit program which has had minimal impact on voting behavior among families with children.

If an election were held tomorrow, 34% of decided voters would cast their ballot for the NDP led by Thomas Mulcair (down 1 point since June), while 33% would vote for Stephen Harper and the Conservatives (up 5 points). Justin Trudeau and the Liberals have been on a steady slide since February, but the decline has recently become more pronounced – the Grits would receive just 25% of the vote (down 4 points), placing them well back in 3rd. The Bloc led by Gilles Duceppe would receive 5% of the vote nationally (21% in Quebec), while 3% would vote for Elizabeth May’s Green Party (up 1 point) and 1% would vote for some other party. It’s still anyone’s game though as nearly two in ten (18%) Canadians remain undecided with less than 3 months to go until E-Day.

Voters are dividing into two main camps…

Almost two thirds (62%) of Canadians believe that the Thomas Mulcair led NDP presents the best alternative to the Harper Conservative Government compared to just four in ten (38%) who believe the Trudeau Liberals are the best alternative.

This suggests that the anti-Harper vote is beginning to consolidate around the NDP and that the Liberals may not have bottomed out as 11% of current Liberal voters believe that the NDP represents the best alternative. In contrast, just 3% of NDP voters believe the Liberals represent the best alternative to the current government.

This voter dynamic is drafting the Conservatives and the NDP as the premier ballot choices for the election—essentially putting most Canadians into two camps for the upcoming battle as Liberal fortunes drift and become the less likely choice for an alternative to the incumbent government.

Tory Rally Due to Rising Approval Rate (44%, +3) and Plummeting Liberals, Child-Care Benefit Cheques Have Negligible Impact

The election will be won or lost in the key regions of Canada which hold the most seats in the House of Commons, most notably Ontario and Quebec. The current geographic breakdown of the findings are:

  • In Ontario, the Conservatives (37%) lead the NDP (32%) and Liberals (28%), while the Greens (2%) and others (1%) trail. This is the tightest race of all the regions of the country.
  • In Quebec, the NDP (37%) continues to have a commanding lead over the Liberals (24%), Bloc (21%), Conservatives (15%), Greens (2%) and others (1%).
  • In BC, the NDP (39%) is ahead of the Conservatives (32%), Liberals (20%) and Greens (9%) by a healthy margin.
  • In Alberta, the Tories (57%) have advanced their lead over the NDP (28%) Liberals (11%), Greens (3%) and others (1%).
  • In Saskatchewan and Manitoba, the Tories (39%) lead the NDP (32%), Liberals (25%) and Greens (3%).
  • In Atlantic Canada, the Liberals (41%) enjoy the lead, with the NDP (32%), Conservatives (24%) and Greens (3%) trailing.

Environicshas done a federal riding poll in Kingston and it shows the NDP ahead. No actual numbers are mentioned in this article but I understand that the lead over the Liberals is about 2%.

This is on top of a similar Environics poll for Guelph released last week giving the NDP a 10% lead.

These two riding polls  are quite significant for a number of reasons. Environics is one of the more reliable polling firms.

The NDP came weak thirds in both these ridings in 2011. They were the only two Ontario ridings outsoide Ottawa and Toronto that the Liberals carried. In each case the incunmbent is not re-offering, the rumoured reasons in each case including disenchancment with Justin.

The two polls reflect a collapse of the Liberals into third place in Ontario and parallel other recent polls, including Ipsos which put them down 4 % in a month .

There is speculation Twitter and elsewhere that the EKOS poll to be released Friday will be particularly savage to the Liberal- 4th place in BC and as low as 20% nationwide.

And all this on the eve of the election call and the first leaders' debate.

NDP on top as voters show 'fatigue' with Conservative government

Trudeau's star power waning?

Lydia Miljan, an associate professor of political science at the University of Windsor, said the election is turning into a two-way race between the Conservatives and the NDP.

She calls the support for the NDP an “artifact” of the spring Alberta government election, noting that if the most Conservative province in the country could vote in an NDP government, it sets other people thinking differently about the party.

“Perhaps they’re not as scary as they once were,” she said.

That said, Miljan believes Mulcair hasn’t necessarily resonated with voters outside of central Canada. She said his task is still to become better known in British Columbia and Alberta “and get people to like him.”

While the Liberals enjoyed a lot of support from the public over the last couple of years thanks to Trudeau’s star power, that is waning because of the lack of substance in his announcements, Miljan said.

Policies announced in the summer have fizzled because they were full of grandiose plans but not much detail. “Likewise, he’s made some pretty strategic errors,” Miljan noted.

She pointed to the failure of the Eve Adams, who crossed the floor from the Conservatives, to secure the nomination in her riding for the Liberals this week. That failure, Miljan said, “tarnishes Trudeau’s reputation and his judgment. That doesn’t help the more general decline of the Liberals and people thinking about Justin Trudeau.”

Green voters face difficult choice in federal election, says pollster

“At this point, you know, to have a discussion of whether the NDP can form the government four months before the election is definitely uncharted territory,” Canseco said.

What this does, according to him, is spur the voters who might have been considering the Liberals, who are currently languishing behind the Conservatives and New Democrats, to reassess their choices.

As a side note, Canseco said Liberals used to use against the NDP the argument that the only way to defeat the Conservatives is to vote Liberal.

Back to the NDP’s promising prospects even before the writ is dropped, Canseco said: “You’re starting to have this conversation at an earlier time. You could be having your own struggle in your mind if you’re trying to figure out who you’re going to vote for if you want to get rid of [Conservative Prime Minister Stephen] Harper or if you’re upset with the Harper government: ‘What is going to happen with your vote?’ And you know, mostly it’s the kind of discussion that is half ideological and half pragmatic. You know you want to vote for a party that’s going to have a chance to win.”

Phenomenal polling results out tonite for Mulcair and the NDP team.

ndp-tom-mulcair-speech

Nanos Research surveyed 1,000 adult Canadians and found the following:

  • Two in three respondents agree it is “time for a change in government.”
  • Harper’s position as the leader most trusted to manage the economy has fallen 10 points since 2009. He is now tied with NDP Leader Tom Mulcair. Liberal Justin Trudeau lags far behind

---------------------

Most trusted economic manager

Since 2009, the NDP has made an astonishing gain on the Nanos Research question of “whom do you trust to manage the economy?”

In the new poll, 31 per cent choose Harper, 31 per cent choose Mulcair, 18 per cent choose Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, four per cent opt for Green leader Elizabeth May, one per cent pick Gilles Duceppe and 15 per cent are unsure.

That’s compared to a 2009 Nanos poll in which only 10 per cent chose the NDP Leader (then Jack Layton) as the most trusted economic manager, 27 per cent picked the Liberal leader (then Michael Ignatieff) and 41 per cent opted for Harper.

The NDP’s gain on the economic management question appears to come almost equally at the expense of the Conservatives and the Liberals.

However, in the key battleground of Ontario, Stephen Harper still appears to have an edge. In that province, 34 per cent choose him, compared to the 27 per cent who pick Mulcair and the 22 per cent who opt for Trudeau.

Harper is also ahead on that economic management question in the Prairies.

Mulcair, meanwhile, is the most trusted in Quebec, the Atlantic provinces and British Columbia.

Trudeau fares best among Atlantic respondents, where 25 per cent choose him, compared to the 20 per cent who choose Harper and 31 per cent who pick Mulcair.

The poll also suggests the question of “who is most trusted with the economy” is very important to Canadians.

When asked whether “the policies of the Government of Canada have a major, minor or no role in the performance of the Canadian economy,” 78 per cent agree that it has a “major role.”

Great news.  But for some bizarre reason they switched the colours on one of the pie charts that accompanies the article.  So they have the Liberals coloured orange and the NDP coloured red.  Annoying.  But, regardless, it's great news that the NDP are gaining trust on the economy.  As we've always known here, egalitarian government and sound economic management is not a contradiction.  Hopefully all of Canada will realize this come October.

You're right. My mistake. I was thinking of 2008.

 

EKOS is expected Friday, right? Looks like Frank Graves has begun to tease the results. Last night he tweeted a link to Chantal Hebert's January piece "Electoral prospects looking grim for Thomas Mulcair’s NDP." I presume he's suggesting the dramatic reversal of fortune continues.

socialdemocrati...

I guess Frank Graves knows how to tease the media and keep them talking as much as possible. I suppose I'll play along.

From the January article he tweeted:

Based on his party’s distant third-place standing in Canada’s largest province, an electoral miracle of Laytonesque proportion is called for.

If it is going to be a contender for federal power next fall, the NDP needs to more than double its Ontario support.

For that to happen, Justin Trudeau would presumably have to campaign even more poorly than Michael Ignatieff did in 2011.

 

 

NorthReport

They were discussing these truly amazin' results for Mulcair on CTV this morning, suggesting it was mind-boggling and unprecedented for the NDP to have this much credibility on the economy. It's obvious voters are not buying Trudeau's gobbledygook on the economy.

"Whom do you trust to manage the economy?”

Mulcair - 31%

Harper - 31%

True.  He could be indicating that there's a huge upswing in Liberal support.  I guess we'll see.

Bah.  Now I'm starting to worry about this.  From the last EKOS poll:

Quote:

Ontario is once again a tight three-way race, but the NDP has fallen back somewhat and there is now only a six-point spread separating the three major parties. This is a real vote-splitting disaster percolating for both the NDP and the Liberals.

The fact the NDP fell back a bit last time has me worried that Ontario simply can't get with it (unlike Quebec and BC).  Ontario, where I'm from, really is a backward place.*

Federal Election 2015: With NDP In Lead, Why Are The Tories Still Targeting Trudeau?

They are fighting over the same voters with similar values by and large in the same ridings because the parties' core values are fairly close.

Quote:

“We are not attacking the NDP yet in [our] ads because our numbers still have the Liberals higher than in 2011, and we need to knock them down further,” a Conservative involved in the campaign said. The NDP is up in British Columbia and in Quebec, he said, but, beyond that, the Tories aren’t convinced the NDP support has increased.

“Essentially, the ridings that we’re close in and matter for us are against Liberals,” another Conservative source said.

There are about 84 ridings that are Conservative–Liberal fights, 33 three-way fights among the Liberals, Tories and NDP, and about 30 ridings that are Conservative–NDP fights, data provided by the Liberals suggest.

A senior Liberal, requesting anonymity, said it is no surprise the Tories are still attacking Trudeau.

“The regions of the country where the election will be decided, the Conservatives are overwhelmingly in one-on-one fights with us, in particular in the GTA [Greater Toronto Area] but also in other parts of Ontario and in the lower mainland in British Columbia,” he said. ...

“The Conservatives know who they are fighting on the ground, they know who is representing a challenge to them in a lot of these races, and they are demonstrating by their choice of target that they are under threat.”

A third Tory source suggested that there is “no low that is too low” for the Liberals.“We think in a contest between the NDP and the Conservatives, we win.”

So the Conservatives will continue to cast doubt on Trudeau’s ability to govern with more television ads and if they prop up the NDP, for a while, with the attacks, so be it.

Geoffrey Chambers, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair’s close advisor, told The Huffington Post Canada that he thinks the Tories are miscalculating.

“I think they will find themselves to be wrong,” he said. “When you look at a lot of those ridings, we weren’t out of it so as to be arithmetically irrelevant. So if we were 5,000 votes behind in a three-way split, don’t count on us not winning those ridings this time.”

There is something surreal about the coverage here.

Forget who we are talking about -- in cold terms.

A party after nine years headed into an election as a government -- in a recession -- only tied with the opposition is not at advantage.

Sure they have more money -- but as the election unfolds they also have a hell of a record to defend that will get attentiona s the election wore on.

Back in 1993 -- look at what happened. Campbell was way ahead. We point to a dumb comment and an ad she did but that was not the full story or the explanation for the size of her defeat. The government's record and unpopularity really came to the fore as the election progressed and people really started to examine and judge.

There is little dout that the Conservatives will have an economic advantage but they are also defending a record that is almost impossible to defend.
