From a Canadian Press story today:
OTTAWA–Jack Layton's New Democrats have been reaping the benefits of an ongoing slide in Liberal support, a new poll suggests.
The latest Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll gave the NDP the support of 19 per cent of respondents, up from 14 per cent at the start of the campaign.
The poll gave the Conservatives 38 per cent support, followed by the Liberals at 23 per cent, with the Greens and the Bloc Quebecois tied at nine per cent.
The result puts intense pressure on the Liberals and embattled leader Stephane Dion to deliver a tour-de-force performance in next week's leaders' debates.
That last sentence made me giggle. Talk about unrealistic expectations. Intense pressure to shine during a... debate? As in... talking? Yes, this should end well for the Liberals. Next, maybe Dion can challenge Michael Phelps to a swimming race.
