The only place in Canada where the Liberals enjoy strength is the Maritimes and arguably Ontario.
They are now tied with the NDP in Quebec...
The survey, conducted earlier this week through Monday's Quebec byelections, also suggested that the Bloc Quebecois had slumped to 22 per cent in Quebec, compared with 26 per cent for the Conservatives. The Liberals and the NDP were tied at 16 per cent in the province, just a point ahead of the Green party.
The Liberals dropped in Ontario. The Conservatives are the strongest party in all regions of Canada except the Maritimes (where they still have several strong seats).
Every poll that says Tories and Liberals tied eventually show that the Consevatives are 3 points ahead. Any poll that shows the green party at 14% asked the question like this.
If a federal election was held would you vote for the green party? If you won't vote green would you vote Liberal? NDP? You wouldn't vote Conservative would you?
Of couyrse this poll says that even with there success in the by-elections the Conservatives can't seem to gain support. Of course this poll was completed before the by-election results were published. Any poll in the Star showing us a t 32 and the Libs at 29 really means we are 38% and the Libs are 28%

When you keep pumping out goodies they will keep asking for more, when you cut that link they will cry, but they will get over it. Cut the rope of equalization then the Liberals would lose the support of the Atlantic Provinces within a generation.
Well, they have not been strong in the West for decades, in Saskatchewan, they have been the third choice, both federally and provincially, for many years. "Why should I sell your wheat?", we seem to have long memories and carry grudges out here.
