Nanos Poll shows Conservatives still have comfortable lead
A recent Nanos Poll shows that support for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives has not dropped since last month’s federal election. On May 2nd, Canadians elected a majority Conservative government. Healthcare and jobs/the economy are statistically tied for the top spot as issue of concern.

Cornwall - Jun. 24, 2011 - A recent Nanos Poll shows that support for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives has not dropped since last month’s federal election. On May 2nd, Canadians elected a majority Conservative government.

According to the Nanos poll, “the Conservatives enjoy a comfortable 14 point lead over the New Democrats. At 42% support nationally, this is among the highest levels of support that Nanos has tracked for the Conservatives and could be considered akin to a honeymoon effect. The Conservatives have a comfortable lead west of the Ottawa River.”

The NDP still holds a commanding 16 point lead in the province of Quebec where the BQ is at 14% (still much lower than their support during the last federal election).

On the leadership front, Harper is ahead of Jack Layton with the Prime Minister's advantage largely driven by positive competence scores. Bob Rae has been added to the leadership Index and he noticeably trails both Harper and Layton on all the measures currently.

Healthcare and jobs/the economy are statistically tied for the top spot in terms of the national unprompted issue of concern.
