Mike Barber Canwest News Service says that the "New Democratic Party has vaulted to levels of voter approval not seen since before the last federal election..." To the point the Dippers are up six of them, putting them at 19 per cent in an Ipsos Reid poll sponsored by Global TV and Canwest News Service .
Good news is the Tories are down three points to thirty seven which takes them out of majority territory.
I do believe that we have seen this movie before, no? You know I seem to recollect that the NDP often gets bumped up in the polls when an election is not imminent and then when the election comes around their support erodes.
They are within five points of the Liberals, who are at 24 per cent, but, again, the question is, will Jack Layton be able to hold his support. Ditto Elizabeth May and the Greens who are hovering around ten.
