The polling information from this weekend seems accurate as it seems to be a valid indicator of Canadian outrage to the Liberal sponsorship scandal. Numbers released today indicate that, not only have the numbers held, the Liberals have fallen another 4% (from 39% to 35% popular support). The Conservative Party of Canada, with welcome momentum, has climbed 3% to 27%. The margin of popular support between the two parties is narrowing and the trend would indicate that this differential will only narrow further. As new relevations come each day, more and more Canadians are becoming aware of the mismanagement and inappropriate behaviour by their government.
To the average Canadian, the Conservative Party of Canada is becoming a viable alternative to Paul Martin and Jean Chrétien’s Liberals. Indeed, our house is united while theirs is becoming more and more divided.
