Toronto - Aug. 8, 2011 - The Conservatives' post election glow has faded somewhat, with support returning to its previously normal level in the mid to high 30s. Despite this, support for the Conservatives remains significantly higher than for other parties - the New Democrats and the Liberals are tied in the mid 20s range.

The NDP continues to enjoy strong support in Quebec, although this has also come down in view of Jack Layton's recent health news, adding fuel to the view that the NDP's ballot box support in May was largely a Layton phenomenon.

Meanwhile, the Tory post election drop in support has occurred when the government was less focused on the economy and more focused on issues like crime and cancelling the long gun registry. In the same period Liberal support increased five points nationally. However, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae's leadership numbers remain very weak, suggesting that the increase in Liberal support is likely more about the party being a parking place for voters in light of current Conservative policy focus.

Healthcare retained and strengthened its place as the top national unprompted issue of concern.
