Liberals face growing threat from Green Party

Views: 256

With the NDP largely eclipsed, it is the Green Party that is emerging as a party that the Liberals are paying attention to.

The latest poll from Campaign Research shows support for Elizabeth May and the Green Party on the rise, helping split the progressive vote three ways.

Nationally, the poll puts the Conservatives in the lead with 35% support, the Liberals at 32%, NDP at 14% and Greens at 12%.

As recently as February the Greens were polling at just 7%.

Asking voters for each party if their decision was locked-in, those supporting both the Greens and NDP were most interested in switching.

Just seven per cent said they were committed to either NDP or Green and would not consider another party.

Just 17% of voters say that Team Trudeau is the only vote they would consider, meaning as many as half of those backing the Liberals are open to switching.

For the Conservatives, one quarter of voters say the blue team is their only option, showing that they have the most dedicated voters at this time.

When asked which party respondents would consider voting for, the Conservatives caught the eye of 41% while the Liberals were hot on their heels at 40%.

Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer are tied in voter approval, with 32% saying the two main leaders are doing a good job — but Elizabeth May sits at a 35% approval rating.

But still, just 9% believe she has what it takes to be PM. While just 7% think the NDP’s Jagmeet Singh is capable of leading the country.

Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives remain in the lead nationally, and in many right-leaning regions of the country.

Latest poll numbers show the Conservatives and Liberals in a tight race for Ontario.

In politics things can change really quickly, which seems to be the case with all political parties except for the NDP. -CINEWS
