The Nanos Weekly Tracker has been updated. Since this rolling polls adds a sample of 250 voters per week, we now have a complete sample of 1000 voters taken since the beginning of the SNC-Lavalin affair. This poll spans from February 15th to March 15th.
Here are the results:
The Conservative Party of Canada gained four points in the past month and sits at 36% nationally. The CPC leads in all Western provinces (although BC is a statistical tie) and is tied with the Liberals in Ontario.
The Liberal Party of Canada dropped 5 points since the saga began and falls to 33%. The results from both the CPC and the LPC are in line with the latest 338 projection (which you can find here).
The NDP, maybe surprisingly, also climbs significantly according to Nanos and gets the support of 20% of respondents. If this level of support is confirmed, it could mean the NDP actually got a boost from the election of Jagmeet Singh in Burnaby South. The NDP could also be benefitting from the Liberals' handling of the SCN-Lavalin affair.
It's budget day in Ottawa. New numbers coming soon.
