A Good 20 Hours for Ignatieff
OTTAWA_ A new poll suggests the Conservatives and Liberals remain locked in a dead heat amid rumblings of a possible fall election.
The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey put the parties in a statistical tie, with 32 per cent support for the Liberals and 31 per cent for the Tories.
The NDP were at 16 per cent, the Greens at 11, and the Bloc Quebecois at nine.
The numbers have barely budged throughout the summer, a period in which voters are typically disengaged.
Some Liberals have been pushing for an autumn election while the Tories have been trashing the idea, saying it would hurt the economic recovery.
The survey of just over 2,000 respondents was conducted Aug. 13-23 and is considered accurate to within 2.2 percentage points 19 times in 20.
