Nanos National Tracking - CP 31.5%, LP 29.1%, NDP 27.2%, GP 5.9%, BQ 5.2% (ending February 24th, 2013)
Nik on the Numbers
There are a number of key observations in terms of the Nanos national tracking. The national ballot race is tightening up. The trend line for Conservative support, although still numerically ahead of the opposition parties, is trending downward and is at the lowest level in the Nanos tracking since August 2009.
Three regional races are also quite tight: BC, Ontario and Atlantic Canada. Also of note, in the province of Quebec support for the BQ has been trending upward, although the BQ still significantly trail the New Democrats.
