New poll, Liberals leading

CANADA - Fortunes have shifted substantially for Stephen Harper's Conservatives since December, with Michael Ignatieff's Liberals enjoying an upsurge, says a new poll from EKOS.

Asked which party they would support if an election were held tomorrow, 36.7 opted for the Liberals while 30.2 per cent chose the Conservatives. About 15.5 per cent supported the NDP, while the Green party was the choice of 8.1 per cent and the Bloc Québécois was backed by 9.4 per cent.

The survey was conducted using a hybrid internet-telephone research panel between April 8 and 13, and involved a random sample of 1,587 Canadians. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 per cent, 19 times out of 20.

The Liberals biggest upsurge is in Ontario and Quebec, which could win them enough seats to get a majority government and end 5 years of minority governments in Canada.

It would also mean warmer ties with the Obama administration, as Stephen Harper gave Obama a cold reception on climate change and other issues.
