Canadian Political Polls

Recommended Posts

Nanos

November 1 – 5, 2010

CPC: 37.1

LPC: 31.6

NDP: 15.5

GP: 5.2

BQ: 10.8

The poll I posted was put in the field between Nov. 3-9th.

This is also with 12% undecided. Decidedly not good for the government.

The fact that the Conservatives polled 37% and 29% in 2 polls from different pollsters on overlapping dates is a clear indication that these polls are a waster of time. All these polls provide is fodder for the political chattering classes and material to keep them employed. It has become useless to pay any attention to them outside an election campaign.

really surprised on this one

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/are-ignatieff-and-layton-getting-itchy-trigger-fingers/article1795389/

Conservatives 29.4

Liberals 28.6

NDP 19.3

Green 10.7

Bloc 9.3

This feels like a massive shift here Conservatives under 30%

With all the "supposed" turmoil in the conservative party at least as being portrayed, is it crumbling?

The poll difference is like 7+ points from the last one I saw a few days ago.. that is a MASSIVE change in only a couple days.

The cabinet changes, and Veterans situations - and some other pretty big things on the move may actually be doing this.

Two groups Veterans and ex-Cons (convicts - and anyone who may be arrested for something - with new prisons being slated..) seem to be two major groups being slated to be effected, and it seems they are getting some negative feedback on that. This is not too long after the issues with Police over the long gun and the extension proposal for afganistan --- CONTRARY to his statements about no military missions in Afghanistan after 2011.

That is pretty negative politics for some very powerful groups in the country.

As well as 3 military procurements each equaling or double the regular annual defence budget.. this being

about 60 Billion of defence procurements planned (although lots of these are long term projects, the numbers are HUGE- most of the money likely going to the USA - and most of the equipment will be used for missions for the USA's global domination objectives) this alongside keeping about 1/6th of the forces in afghanistan, 300 million for a free military base, and foreign operating bases, while canadian bases have been reduced to a bare minimum. Fighting a war overseas does not come cheap - also supplying 1000 trainers does not come cheap, why exactly are they not paying us to train them, or why doesn't the government just hire private contractors to train them and leave the political quagmire at home, it'd probably cost less, heck you could probably trade their services by providing some equipment not being brought home for reduced operating costs. I'm geussing private contractors would be cool with a helicopter or two or some other stuff.

New Nik Nanos poll. Not numbers of support, but 2 important issues.

1. Not surprisingly, the PMs message about an evil coalition is absolutely not working.

2. Incredible voter volatility. 1 in 2 Canadians will not vote for who they voted for last election.

Who decided that? Liberals?

One of the polls said that Harper and Iggy, should step aside because Canadians don't care for them. That's nothing new for the Liberal leader and now, Canadians are saying goodbye to Harper. I think Le Blanc could get the support of the the Liberal party and Canadians but not sure for the Tories. I'm sure Harper would want another reformer to take his place rather than a reformer PC, but who?

Canadians are saying goodbye to Harper.

CBC and Red Star do. Only elections decide that. Like it did with Dion.

They would have to know who Le Blanc is :)

but not sure for the Tories.

They died with Joe Clark and David Orchard.

I honestly don't think you can put the same light on the Opposition Leader as you do the PM. Ignatieff, compared to Harper gets next to no press. People don't like him now, but then again people don't know him period and I've been saying this since the day he was brought in as leader, there's no possibility of that changing until an election call. Lest we forget, Harper and Chretien were just as unpopular going into their elections. How many elections did Harper actually lose before coming PM?

Even if this wasn't the case, nothing is going to change the fact that Ignatieff will be leading the LPC into the next election. If he ends up losing seats, he'll be turfed. If he wins only a couple seats, he'll be turfed. Is there a possibility he can hang on if he wins a whack of seats but not government? Sure, though not guaranteed.

We can debate of who may be a better leader but if the Liberals change leaders know, it sets everything back by at least a year. If the caucus ousts Ignatieff, the stories for months on end will be how badly divided the caucus is, the infighting, the intrigue, the disorganization etc. etc. etc.

As for someone to replace Harper, there's really honestly no one that isn't crazy and the old PCers are deserting the party.

Margin of error on this one is quite high, overall 3.6% and the regional breakdown is worse, with all regions other than BC and Prairies the lead does not exceed the margin for error. I also find it hard to believe that the LPC has 33.6% support in the Prairies. I'm thinking this is an outlier, but we'll have to see if the trend continues after Christmas.
