Conservatives slip to third as NDP, Liberals enter two-way race: Nanos poll

As the marathon federal election campaign passes its halfway mark, it appears that Stephen Harper’s Conservatives are losing support while Tom Mulcair’s New Democrats have pulled into the lead. And Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are close behind the NDP.

  • David Murrell

    Well, that’s it then. As I have been posting for some time now, Harper’s Conservatives are toast and that’s that. The time has come to stop talking about thus election and to start talking about the oncoming government and how conservatives face it. We should realize that that we as conservatives are completely shut out of the corridors of power and should confront this reality honestly. We should use guerilla tactics (street demos, investigative journalism against the prospective financial regularties), as a start.

    • No I think it is too early a poll is a poll and I suspect a great many “silent conservatives” refused to participate or gave answers the pollsters wanted to hear.

      Look at Britain – Labour was a lock – not.

      • New Centurion

        BC Libs were toast too, remember that.

        • terrence

          The “polls” had the Non-Democratic Party winning in a LANDSLIDE in the last BC election. (The BC liberals won a majority)

        The media is even dragging out that old leftist fake author Margaret Atwood. First she had a couple of anti-Harper rants in the Post, and now today she has an anti Harper rant on the Globe and Smell website. Oh, and she wants the oilsands shut down, and everyone should rely on windmills and solar panels put on their homes.

        • I do believe her “interventions” work against the lib-left. Let her rant.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Atwood is a fanatic fuzzball.

      • Justin St.Denis

        This poll may well be the echo chamber the MSM uses to hear itself confirmed/endorsed.

        The only political leaders with full beards in the last century have been dictators or communists. It is well known that facial hair is a political no-no if you seriously want to get elected to HIGH office. Ask women who are NOT already NDP members; few if any I tend to vote for the NDP.

        And Justin is just silly, and anyone with a brain can see that.

        I am going to pray a lot in the coming weeks.

        I hope so. I know my husband likes to do that 😉

      C’mon Eeyore, stay strong!

    • mauser 98

      Alberta, BC, UK polls have been wrong… some way off
      even Premier Strapon had no poll showing majority

    • I second BCF’s opinion – many people hate responding to polls and most of the Canadian journalists are shameless liars driven by their progressive agenda. For example, in the last few days the Toronto Star has bombarded us with stories and editorials urging us to take more Syrians. Yet even there the comments (at least those they keep) are very critical to that idea. In some cases the editors even shut down the comments. That tells me that the media try to impose a very distorted picture of the voters’ priorities. We may see totally different election results from what they predict.

      I like your idea of guerrilla tactics, but that must include a complete assault on the leftist values in every possible way. Exposing financial irregularities is far from sufficient – in Ontario that has been done for years against the Grand Dyke of Queen’s Park and her gang of crooks, trannies, and perverts, yet she has brushed off all revelations and even the police won’t do anything against her (alleged, of course) crimes. When the public has deteriorated to such a degree that even criminal behaviour doesn’t bother them, maybe the real solution could come only after a complete collapse.

    Cool I hope the pools became for real until the last day of the election and we can see the end of tunnel .

    • ontario john

      And that tunnel is going to be full of muslims flooding into Canada.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        They are already here 5,000 of them , this current government should accept Christians only .

        • WalterBannon

          well you are voting for more muslims, lefty

    • Waffle

      “Pools”???? You’re a very funny guy, Maurixio. Thanks for my morning laugh.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        Me too I laugh when I can see hope , it makes me feel happy .

        • Waffle

          Would that be in a reflecting pool or a cesspool?

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            Whatever it is , or how the media makes it ,it’s funny sometimes.

        • Clink9

          Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.

          John Adams

          • Justin St.Denis

            Clink9, Maurixio holds the patent on stupid. Do not waste your neurons on it.

          • Clink9

            Heh, I know, but they hold the “Beat A Liberal Day” only once a year in my neighborhood and I was getting antsy!

          the last time I heard that rhetoric was a community organizer crying “Hope! Change!” Without ever telling anyone what was the hope and change.

          Doubled the Debt, destroyed businesses, eroded healthcare, lied to his people, divided a nation on every issue imaginable, shunned his allies, empowered his enemies, insulted his troops, all while playing over 200 games of golf.

          JT is an idiot but moreover it is the party that put him on the pedestal in the first place. Why in the Blue Hell would you take the drama teacher over the astronaut to lead a nation? That decision alone compounded with the previous two failures(Dion, Ignatieff) was the last straw for me that this wasn’t a serous party but a self interested one.

          I’ve been through three NDP governments in three different provinces. All three waste no time destroying wherever they are. They fail the test of power and the test of success every time. And while fools drink up the lies that fall from their lips they line their own pockets and the pockets of the unions. They don’t give 2 shits about Canada, our laws, our way of life. They only care about themselves and how they can get someone else s stuff without doing the work.

          I’m so sick of my generation that listens with it’s eyes and thinks with it’s feelings.

          I’ve seen your hope and change and it’s a zero sum.

    The media and elites of this country have mounted a massive effort against the Conservatives. With the socialists in power in Alberta and French citizen Mulcair as the new PM, the economy is toast. Trudeau completed his back room deal with Wynne by promising on the weekend that he would get rid of any laws hindering unions. And Mulcair walked in the Labour Day parade. With Mulcair as PM, expect our Armed Services to be sent to every UN mission shit hole on the planet, billions spent on green energy scams and whiny indians, the UN making decisions for us, and of course wide open borders to every fake refugee on the planet.

      So just more of the same

    • canminuteman

      And a new round of firearms registration and confiscation. I gave up my guns once. It ain’t happening again.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Simply ignore the law on that score. Many, many Canadians do. And always have a weapon with you that you can use to defend yourself, be it a knife, a gun, toxic spray or your own fighting skills.

        Only STUPID Canadians actually follow every little law Canuckistani politicians come up with. Those who can think, think for themselves, and ignore nuisances like tiny little laws that make no sense.

  • jayme

    If they were slipping because of issues right in Canada I would say ok but its not its the party that will bring in the most refugees will win.

  • andycanuck

    I’m going to have to see that replicated by a number of other polling companies rather than take the word of Liberal-run Nanos first hand.

  • If the NDP and Libs are ahead, then Canadians too are losing their minds. But I think – I hope – that Harper will finish first. Polls are not reliable indicators – time and again this has been the case.

  • Waffle

    Too funny!! I have CTV on in the background and chuckling while I listen to Tommy the Commie counting his chickens. Have we reached the half-way mark yet?

  • WalterBannon

    Well then Canada is truly fucked, and it deserves to be fucked.

    • canminuteman

      You broke it, you bought it as they say. Unfortunately, there is nowhere to run to get away from it anymore.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The Conservatives have to bring in term limits for its leader, voters don’t like Harper, not the Conservative Party.

  • jayme

    We need to be honest its all over between the goodies the Liberals and Ndp would give out to the boat loads of muslims they would bring in.

  • BillyHW

    We are all bleeding vaginas now.
