The latest Nanos Tracking Poll suggests that the Conservatives continue their lead over the Liberals (35.6% for the Conservatives, and 29.2% for the Liberals) even though both have dropped in popularity (-1.6 for the Conservatives and -4.0 for the Liberals). The NDP continues to show marginal gains from the last Nanos Tracking Poll (+4.5).
Research suggests that the Conservatives continue to enjoy an advantage over the Liberals but remain in minority territory.
Nanos conducted a random telephone survey of 1,008 Canadians, 18 years of age and older, between May 29th and June 3rd, 2010. A survey of 1,008 Canadians is accurate to within 3.1 percentage points, plus or minus, 19 times out of 20. For 756 committed voters, it is accurate to within 3.6 percentage points, plus or minus, 19 times out of 20. Margins may be larger for smaller samples.
