Canadian Election Race Tightening

According to at least one new poll, Canada's October 14th federal election may well be turning into a horse race, after all.

Scott Tribe points to a current CPAC-Nanos Daily Election Tracking poll with the numbers for the period ending October 4:

Conservative Party: 34 %

Liberal Party: 30 %

NDP: 19 %

Bloc Quebecois: 10 %

Green Party: 7 %

And, over at Macleans, even Andrew Coyne says The Tories are in Trouble.


In the same vein, CTV reports tonight:

The Conservatives are losing steam in key swing ridings in Ontario, B.C. and Quebec, a development that could put a majority government out of arm's reach for Stephen Harper.

Simlarly, CBC reports on a current Harris-Decima poll showing a similar decline in Prime Minister Stephen Harper's electoral fortunes. See: Conservative support slipping, poll suggests
