Dion taking NDP support

At least, that's what this poll suggests.

The Decima Research survey, conducted during the week following the former environment minister's win, suggested the Liberals had the support of 35 per cent of decided and leaning voters. That compared to 32 per cent for the Tories, 12 per cent for the NDP, 11 per cent for the Bloc Quebecois and seven per cent for the Green party.

Decima CEO Bruce Anderson said the New Democratic Party's support is not only down from last January's election, but it seems to be soft.

"I guess the question for the NDP is, if Stephane Dion is positioned as a centre-left, environmentally-preoccupied, social-justice-motivated leader, does that further put pressure on the NDP voter pool?," he said

"So far, I think, the evidence is yes it does. The NDP numbers are soft."

Good news for the Liberals, bad news for the Tories, terrible news for the NDP.

Man, I used to love the NDP. Now I'm almost ashamed over how happy I feel that they're under a lot of pressure.


As a former decima employee, however, take the news with a grain of salt. Not the brightest company in the world. (:
