Conservatives Leading, NDP fading in new poll #elxn42

Conservatives: 33 per cent

Update: Abacus Poll reflects Nanos findings

In our latest nationwide poll, only 5 points separates the Conservatives (32%) Liberals (29%) and NDP (27%). However, underneath the national figures, important trends have been developing in Quebec and Ontario, where 199 of the country’s 338 seats are at stake. The number of undecided voters in our sample this week is 21%.

    I ink the Ndp will be around 19% after tonight now the good news is that will be it for them the bad news is it could give the Liberals a majority.

    • I do not think Justin will get in, he is an empty suit not a Prime Minister.

      • jayme

        Sure but he is very pro muslim and the left loves that.

        • Sad but true.

          • jayme

            I have been on some very left leaning sites (Non Cbc)and its very scary what some want such as get away from being a Christian country.

            We’ve raised 2 generations of non-critical thinkers and the Comment Boards are just a soapbox for the ego-driven, unemployed/underemployed on which to spew their illiterate, unthinking drivel. People love seeing their crap in print even without a proper byline (a silly pseudonym will do).

          • Real democracy in Canada!

            Why would I want to put my real name on anything here. Everyone is a foaming at the mouth person and no doubt someone that would attack me. I use a different name purposely for that reason. There are other things which protect me like my location.

          • Well one thing your going to do starting now is to stick to one name or you’ll be booted.

          • mobuyus

            That’s some real cloak and dagger stuff ya got goin there kid. Have you tried a tin-foil hat. Here’s a tip for ya kiddo, don’t be the kind of person that attracts righteous fire and you will live another day to lurch about in the shadows playing Danger Man.

          • mobuyus

            Don’t forget “unemployable”.

          • Waffle

            LOL!! That too.

          • pettifog

            they never seem to have a problem with our country being filled with Muslim sympathizers though.

          • Oracle9

            There’s a mass conversion to Christianity in the left, at least in support, now that the Church has planted a marxist political activist occupying the pope’s position.

      • The Butterfly

        What about the hair though?

  • Real democracy in Canada!

    I hope it will be a minority government so that the Canadian people help change the system more easier and realize that the mainstream parties are pretty much the same.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_parties_in_Canada

    Don’t forget that Reform grew out of the GST debate. Perhaps there are ways that out of the migrant crisis, TPP and other crises that better parties get created and formed.

    People on here have talked about all parties being the same maybe we should have a multi-party democracy, in its most real form.

    • David

      Yoiks.

    • jayme

      My greatest fear is the Cpc wins a small minority 140 seats then Liberals 130 seats Ndp 100 seats.

    • Waffle

      You had to go to Wikip. to look up a list of Canadian political parties??? LOL!! You must have gone to school in Ontario.

    • Minicapt

      Assisted demise, you can be a test case.

    Also, polls are just polls and I am very interested in having a discussion about where Canada can go from here being in a technical recession and with every Western nations being under 2% of GDP, in terms of economic growth.

    Canada is also in a trade deficit, the highest in Canadian history.

    The solution is not more deficits but understanding why we are in debt in the first place, which is following the IMF program and all parties are internationalist and globalist.

    Polls are also a good topic since they are not scientific but for keeping people employed. They also are most of the time wrong, and the only poll that matters is Election Day. Getting people out of their left/right dichotomy is another thing that must happen or else we are locked in the system created by the mainstream parties, which they want since they only care about power.

    • Waffle

      Hey. “Real Democracy” — perhaps we could have the discussion you seem to crave if you would learn to write intelligible English and ditch the string of cliches you seem to have picked up by reading/watching too much MSM,

      • Real democracy in Canada!

        I never knew being part of the minor party movement made someone mainstream. Seems a bit topsy-turvy to me. I have lost faith in the system. Actually, it is the conservatives, liberals and social democrats that are mainstream! I write what I write because the financial crisis changed my mind. I cannot say the same about you because you have hitched your wagon on Islam and thinking the way to fix the West is through foreign policy rather than improving our democracy or improving the lives of people through more disposable income, which is not rising at all.

          Here’s a tip for you, billy bob. If the death cult is not eradicated, you won’t have the freedom to comment at this or any other blog.

    • Clink9

      William Robert?

    • mobuyus

      We could call you leftists something else if it would help you sleep at night.

  • mauser 98

    Justin , Suzuki dust up was nice..

    • Waffle

      I love it when liberals/progressives eat their own. So much fun,

      • Surele Surele

        And they always do it, in the end.

  • Ed

    Has the Toronto Star editorial board come out with a solemn endorsement of Trudeau yet? That could change everything, LOL.

    • David Murrell

      If these latest poll numbers hold up, there could be panicking in the senior board rooms of our media. Look for more attack pieces by the media, if they start to worry. (For example, as Blaze posted earlier this morning, the pro-Liberal Globe and Mail did a hit piece on Harper, leaking a Foreign Affairs memo criticizing Harper’s anti-Islamic terrorist stand).

      The fix is in.

      • Waffle

        Huge “undecided” factor. Sure hope Steve is preparing his checkmate move,

      • Jay Currie

        I suspect that any indication that Harper is anti-Islamist will give him a nice boost in the polls.

        The niqab thing is screwing the NDP and the Libs in Quebec. And Harper’s anti-niqab stand is popular across the country.

        • Oracle9

          At least the news cycle has gotten over Duffy/Wright and that precious $90,000 expense claim that threatened to change the course of the country.

  • Surele Surele

    My street transformed overnight: blue everywhere. For the first time in about 20 years.

    • Cool.

    • andycanuck

      Not here but then our CPC MP only won by 25 votes the last time. However, amongst the roughly 50/50 sign split I see driving around there are also a few NDP signs and that’s more than the usual none for my riding. So I’m hoping in close-run suburban ridings that the NDP will steal enough Grit votes to help the CPC hold its own. And I doubt any former CPC voter will stay home or switch to Grit.

      Also, with the NDP dropping in Quebec over the niqab issue, maybe the BQ will pick up votes there rather than the Grits?

    • Waffle

      So nice when people wake up from that coma.

    • Good news.

  • Real democracy in Canada!

    The Conservative coalition cannot survive without Harper. I think when he lives the splits will start to show. I hope that the Progressive Canadian party can gain those soft Conservatives, red tories and blue liberals. Canada needs a real foreign policy and not the fearmongering and fake foreign policy of this Harper regime.

    • truepeers

      Harper is crap! But the party cannot survive without him! Another winner in the logic wars…. Or do you mean he is such an evil manipulator or boss for the REAL kingpins, you know, da Gold Tories

      • Real democracy in Canada!

        It is true. He and MacKay created the party and without knowing where the moderate conservatives go is going to be problematic and my parties the Progressive Canadian party, the successor party of the old PC party, along with the Canadian Action party have had many conversations about that particular subject. Toryism changed from high Toryism pre-2003-04 to being about measuring polls and basing the party off of polls. It was called at the time an evolution of Toryism. Even though one nation conservatives do not have a home which is what I was prior to 2003-04. You know the type of Tories that were about the mushy middle and Harper opposed such people. MacKay was in it for the ride and promised no merger. One has to wonder how long the gamemanship can last until Canada gets real representation. Red Tories are like John Tory, Diefenbaker, Stanfield, Clark and Borden. We need real leaders that understand moderation and conservatism and to a sense nationalism. But Harper and this party are a party of populists rather than evidence-based policies. People on the right get frightened about moderate conservatism. It is what made Canada great.

        • truepeers

          High Toryism? That’s a term i associate with English history and hardcore defense of the Anglican establishment… Anyway. Whatever made Cnada great can surely not be put into a “progressive” bottle. The welfare state has become a ponzi scheme with low native fertility and more and more dependence on immigration as a short term fix which just grows the debt, putative obligations, of future generations. Harper makes noises but none of the parties is at all serious about looking at Canada’s long term problems. JT and TM seem to want to grow the ponzi as fast as they can which i guess will at least bring things to a head sooner. If Harper makes himself a champion of the only modern Western, creative, high tech nation with positive fertility, i.e. Israel, and suggests Israel should be a model for our own nation; and if this is behind your grumbling about his foreign policy, I have to wonder about the mind of one who whines most about the man’s largest redeeming feature. On what is your nationalism based if not just resentment of something or someone else?

  • jayme

    Just found out a debate for the Nepean riding will be held at a mosque what if it was held at a church I bet there would be riots.

    • mobuyus

      Abdul Abdi is a muslim and is running for the cpc in Nepean. He is an Ottawa cop on leave. It is somewhat reassuring to have a cop in a mosque.

  • Man_with_Hat

  • David Murrell

    The CBC News web page just. come out with its “poll tracker” report saying there are four recent polls showing the NDP are fading, with the C’s gaining.
