Poll shows a lead for the Liberals

The latest Nik Nanos poll shows the Liberal party taking a slim lead over the Harper Conservatives. The lead is just inside the margin of error for the poll, but these are welcome numbers nonetheless.

Interesting notes:

  • NDP voters are trending toward the Liberal column.
  • Harper ranks third in Quebec behind Ignatieff and Duceppe as best PM.
  • Liberal support has increased in every region except Atlantic Canada (even Western Canada!?).
  • Conservative support declined everywhere except Quebec.
  • Ignatieff is only behind by 6% in the "Best PM category".
If this trending is confirmed by other pollsters get ready for the CPC nuclear option.
