Ekos Polling conducted another Poll between April 14th - 20th, sample size 2,084, M.O.E =2.15.
Are we going to hear excuses from each political party why little movement is taking place on a weekly basis? The bar graph have includes six Polls from June 2009 to present, demostrating the futility of measuring the movement of partisan vote or leaning (excuses) . Here is the Post last week. Ekos Poll: Direction of Government Right or Wrong
Here is my list of excuses: Nothing is sticking, the suggestions our military are "War Criminals" using rendition, NDS, smearing the Canadian Government, Civil Service is participating some secretive undemocratic government by redacting documents to hide details of "torture".
The opposition does not understand fighting for the Omar Khadrs', alleged murderers guilty of "gun residue" trying to kill our soldiers, relief workers, government official is not a vote winner.
The circus act in targeting an ex-junior minister, her spouse in the latest witchunt, was never going to work outside the Ottawa bubble. The actors in this poorly acted soap opera are hiding behind parliamentary privilege.
The Press Gallery, Political Pundits who have been participating in this yellow journalism for months have failed. They are quoting the same allegations, smears that are behind parliamentary privilege.
Canadians will NOT switch their party loyalties on Parliamentary privileged-MSM spin, we have always tuned out Politics for the most part.
Apologists for the other side will give you excuses why the government is in trouble and running scared.
Angus Poll was the most accurate in the General Election October 14, 2008.
Note: * My graph may contain an error regarding BQ 20% vs 7%. Update if necessary.
Update: Norman Spector, Bloggers have questioned relationship of Pollster hired by CBC.
Still, even a poll skeptic such as myself was surprised to read in The Globe and Mail this morning that Ekos’s Frank Graves is simultaneously polling for the taxpayer-supported CBC and providing partisan political advice to the Liberals: “Frank Graves of Ekos Research … has told the Grits that the wedge politics of the Conservatives provide them with an opportunity to stake out a stark alternative. Stop worrying about the West, he’s told them. No need to fear polarizing the debate. It’s what worked for Mr. Chrétien against Preston Manning and Stockwell Day. -Norman Spector
