More polls: This time the Conservatives get a bump

The Strategic Counsel is the pollster for CTV News and The Globe and Mail. I’m subbing in today as host for Mike Duffy on his show Mike Duffy Live (CTV Newsnet at 5 pm Eastern/2 pm Pacific) and I’ll be talking to Strategic Counsel chairman Allan Gregg about his latest numbers which show that, despite some stumbles in their first few weeks in office, the Conservatives actually saw an increase in their national support.

Here’s the numbers:

  • Conservatives: 39 per cent (up from 36 per cent on election day Jan. 23)
  • Liberals: 28 per cent (down from 30 per cent on Jan. 23)
  • NDP: 19 per cent (up from 18 per cent)
  • Bloc Quebecois:  9 per cent (down from 11 per cent)

The poll was done Feb. 16 to Feb. 19. It was a survey of 1,000 people across the country and the margin of error is 3.1 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
