New Democrats Hold Slight Lead over Liberals in Latest Nanos Research Poll

Election 360 National

OTTAWA – ELECTION 2015 – Nanos Research reports that “If an election were held over the holiday weekend, it would be a two horse race between the NDP (33%) and the Liberals (31%). Conservative support stands at 26% followed by the Green Party at six percent and the BQ (4% nationally, 16% in Quebec).”

The race has tightened up between the Liberals and the New Democrats. The Conservative support in British Columbia now falling behind the New Democrats, places the Harper Government in the position of looking at a minority government, at best.

Regional Ballot – The NDP lead in Quebec and BC, while the Liberals lead in Atlantic Canada and Ontario. The Conservatives lead in the Prairies.

Accessible Vote – Measured through a series of independent questions for each political party, the proportion of Canadians that would consider voting for the NDP has increased, as has for the Liberals. The proportion of Canadians that would consider voting Conservative has declined.
