Tories Best Represent Family Values

Forty-one per cent of parents believe the Tories are the best party for families, compared to 24 per cent of those without children. One-third (34 per cent) of non-parents say the NDP best understands families, compared to 23 per cent of those with children who favour the NDP. The split is closer for the Liberals, with 18 per cent of parents and 19 per cent of those without children saying they're the best party for families.
Just over one-third of Canadians (35 per cent) favour Prime Minister Stephen Harper's party when it comes to family issues, while nearly three in 10 (27 per cent) believe Jack Layton's NDP is the most family-friendly. Just two in 10 (19 per cent) vouch for the Liberals as led by Michael Ignatieff when it comes to family issues.
"What was . . . more instructive out of this poll was not so much the Tories themselves and how they've been able to capture that vote, but the utter loss of the Liberal party to come anywhere close," says John Wright, senior vice-president with Ipsos Reid.
 
"I think the Liberal party would be a little shocked to see that they've lost or haven't got a key constituency."

"I think if you ask people today what the Liberal party stands for with families, you'd be hard-pressed (to define it), but that's probably the case with almost every issue they've had to position on in the last few years," he says.
