THE latest Nanos federal ballot tracking (December 14) has the Liberals at 36 per cent support, followed by the Conservatives at 33.9 per cent.
Last week the Conservatives were at 34.8 per cent support and the Liberals at 34.1 per cent.
With a margin of error of 3.1 per cent, that means the two parties are neck-and-neck.
The NDP is at 16.6 percent support, the Bloc Quebecois at 3.4 per cent, the Greens at 6.6 per cent and the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) at 0.7 per cent.
Asked whether they would consider voting for each of the federal parties, 49.5 per cent of Canadians say they would consider voting Liberal while 44.3 per cent would consider voting Conservative. Close to four in 10 (38.3%) would consider voting NDP, 29.7 per cent would consider voting Green, 11.3 per cent would consider voting for the People’s Party and 26.7 per cent would consider voting for the BQ.
Nanos tracking has Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the preferred choice as PM at 37.4 per cent of Canadians, followed by Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer (25.6%), NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh (6.3%), Green Party Leader Elizabeth May (5.4%) and PPC Leader Maxime Bernier (2.6%). Twenty-two per cent of Canadians were unsure whom they preferred.
More than half of Canadians (57%) believe Trudeau has the qualities of a good political leader while 43 per cent believe Scheer has the qualities of a good political leader. Approximately three in 10 (30.5%) say Jagmeet Singh has the qualities of a good political leader, while 36.8 per cent believe the same about May. One in six (18.7%) believe Bernier has the qualities of a good political leader and 13.8 per cent say BQ Leader Mario Beaulieu has the qualities of a good political leader (Quebec only).
