Oops...

Maybe I spoke too soon. (It's cool, right? *nervous laughter*)

Conservatives - 35.8%
Liberals - 29.6%
NDP - 19.4%
Bloc - 11.6%
Greens - 3.4%

That's quite the reversal of the established trends. It's not a Liberal victory, but it allows room for recovery, and maybe a bare win if the trend keeps up.

That's the Ekos poll. Ispos-Reid and CTV/Globe and Mail still have the Tories ahead by 12 points. I wonder if Ekos sent people out again to confirm their numbers like they did when the Tories first surged ahead. Keep dreaming.

Here is the story from the Star.

It is a closure of the gap from EKOS's previous poll, but we'll need to see if it's a rogue poll or not.

However, and not to rain on your parade too much, I found this a bit interesting:

What's more, Adams points out, if you count the pool of 1,200 voters EKOS polled over the last two nights the news is even better for the Liberals: They trail by just five points using those numbers.

Seems like good news for Team Martin, right? But hang on: what that means is, the Libs had a good day two days ago, and a less-good day yesterday, since their #'s drop a bit when the second day's numbers are looked at on their own.

Oh, what the hell. I hope this does give the Tories a bit of a push to work harder and not coast for the last few days.

The Liberals are too late. Martin's plea for a "coalition" is going to fall on deaf ears.

They had a good run...
