NDP Tied-for-first in Canada for the First Time in 25 Years!!

... or not, since everyone seems to have forgotten the Harris-Decima poll from August of last year. But yeah, as the Globe article says, it's nothing to get excited about.

(Then again, maybe it was the first time Environics had them tied for first in 25 years, I don't know.)

Anyways, the numbers are sad. Cons and Dips tied at 30% each, with the Liberals at 20%, the Bloc at 8%, the Greens at 7%, and 5% for "others," which is likely where the Con vote has scurried off to.

In terms of seats, it's 123 Con, 95 NDP, 62 Lib, 27 Bloc, and Lizzy May. The NDP maintain a healthy number as they drop in Quebec, thanks to support in BC and Atlantic Canada, as well as steady numbers in the Prairies and Ontario. However, take away that BC and Atlantic support, they've got a slight problem.

Otherwise, it's kind of a boring poll. Hm.
