another week and another fabrication by who else HarrisDecima.

According to them they have been tied for months so how could they be losing ground if they're still tied?

somebody sees it different

[VANCOUVER – Jun. 25, 2008] - The governing Conservatives head to the barbecue circuit with a three-point lead over the opposition Liberals, but neither of the two main political leaders has been able to generate positive momentum this month, according to the Toronto Star / Angus Reid poll.

In the online survey of a representative national sample of 1,007 adults, 33 per cent of decided voters say they will cast a ballot for the Tories in the next federal election, down one point since May. Support for the Conservative Party is below its share of the actual vote in the January 2006 ballot (36.3%).

The Liberal Party is second with 30 per cent, up three points in a month and exactly the same as its 2006 election total (30.2%). The New Democratic Party (NDP) is third with 19 per cent (+1), followed by the Bloc Québécois with nine per cent (-2), and the Green Party with seven per cent (-1).

The provincial breakdown shows that the Grit advantage over the Tories in Ontario stands at just two points (35% to 33%). In Quebec, the Bloc is still first with 37 per cent, with the Conservatives (25%) and the Liberals (21%) fighting for second place.

The Tories continue to dominate in Alberta (63%) and have surpassed both the Liberals and the NDP in British Columbia. The gender breakdown shows that men (44%) are clearly driving the Tories into the top of Canada’s political spectrum, with male voters less willing to back the Grits (24%) or the NDP (15%). Among women, the Liberals hold the upper hand (33%), followed by the Conservatives (25%) and the NDP (23%).

The approval rating for Stephen Harper (32%) remained unchanged since May, while Stéphane Dion gained two points (12%). Once again, the two main federal party leaders keep a negative momentum score. Harper did not get any bounce from the unprecedented apology to Canada's Aboriginal population, and Dion did marginally better after the introduction of his "Green Shift" proposal.

The Conservative leader’s momentum score for the month of June is -19 (10% of respondents say their opinion of the prime minister has improved, while 29% say it has worsened). The Prime Minister’s negative momentum almost reached 20 points for the third consecutive month.

The Grit leader’s momentum score for the month of April is -26 (9% of respondents say their opinion of Dion has improved, while 35% say it has worsened). While Dion has managed to steer clear of the low momentum score he garnered in March (-32), his numbers have not bounced back dramatically.

The survey also gauged the approval ratings for three other federal party leaders. Three-in-ten Canadians (30%, -4) provide a positive assessment of the job Jack Layton is doing as leader of the NDP. The approval rating for Bloc Québécois leader Giles Duceppe stands at 29 per cent (-13) in Quebec. Green Party leader Elizabeth May gets good marks from 17 per cent of respondents in Canada (-5), but three-in-five (61%) cannot provide an assessment of her performance.

As has been the case throughout 2008, Canadians are not enthused by either of the two main federal party leaders. More than a third of respondents (37%, +4) prefer Harper as Prime Minister, while only 10 per cent (-1) favour Dion. Still, two-in-five Canadians (39%) pick neither man for the job. Harper remains unable to reach the 41 per cent mark he garnered in March 2007.

In the poll, respondents were provided with nine qualities and characteristics usually associated with political leaders, and asked to state whether each of them applied to Canada’s two main federal party leaders. Harper retains a large lead as being a strong and decisive leader (46% to 10%), having a vision for Canada’s future (44% to 29%), managing the economy effectively (40% to 13%), understanding complex issues (40% to 21%), and inspiring confidence (33% to 9%).

However, a third of respondents (34%) think the current prime minister understands the problems of Canadians (21% for Dion), and 29 per cent say Harper generally agrees with them on issues they care about (17% for Dion). The Liberal leader has lost his edge on Harper on one indicator: being honest and trustworthy (32% for Harper, 25% for Dion). Dion only leads Harper as a politician who cares about the environment (43% for Dion, 28% for Harper).

Sorry for your loss.

I mean sorry for your Loser :lol:

Don't worry, Demo Derby. The lawsuit is comming up and Harper just added another million or so. The press coverage in Quebec alone should be well worth the price you're party will pay.

To address you're comments, Mustang: It's a poll, and we all know how they can be tweaked and twisted. No comment is needed on the original post because, given the details we have, we might as well argue with tea leaves, the colour of entrail smoke or that Ouiji board the libs are using to talk with Chuck Cadman.

I'd ask for your 2 cents, but then i'd need change. When you can add anything other than partisan junk, aping and hypocrisy, i'll listen, but until then, shuffle on.

No, others post stories they think are worthy of displaying here to share with the rest of the board without feeling the need to add their own (sophomoric in your case) editorializations to every one.

Personally, I think that the person who submitted a story should be barred from making the first comment.

Those who are 100 percent innocent shall cast the first stone.
