...Not being in the media spotlight day after day, as he was during the election campaign, has contributed to a slide in how Canadians view NDP Leader Jack Layton’s leadership skills.
And having Bob Rae take over the reigns as Liberal Leader hasn’t done anything for Grit party fortunes.
The poll, released Monday and conducted by Nanos Research, shows that just a few weeks after the May 2 general election, the Prime Minister and his Conservatives have 41.8-per-cent support compared to 28 per cent for Mr. Layton and the NDP – a 14-point lead...
The Liberals are at 22.3 per cent, the Green Party, with its sole MP Elizabeth May, is at 3.7 per cent and the Bloc has 3.4-per-cent support nationally.
In addition, the Prime Minister’s leadership indicators are strong.
Mr. Harper is leading his opponents when it comes to issues of trust, competence and vision for Canada – 32.3 per cent, 38.5 per cent and 33.7 per cent, respectively, compared to 29.4, 24.1 and 28.4 for Mr. Layton.
Mr. Rae, who was appointed interim Liberal Leader only a month ago, registers with an 8.4-per-cent score on trust, 10.4 per cent on competence and 8.5 per cent on vision for Canada.
Mr. Layton, meanwhile, has dropped about five points in each of those categories since the election.
Man if it were the liberals, the screaming of "CRIMINALS!!!!" would be just.... deafening.
oh but it's ok cause Harper is popular right now.
Let me correct that for you.
