EKOS poll: The first hints of discontent with Harper’s prorogue?

Kady O’Malley of CBC details the EKOS poll that has just come out this AM, which shows a Conservative drop and the Liberals now only trailing the Conseratives by 5 percentage points:

Conservatives: 33.1 (-2.8)
Liberals: 27.8 (+1.1)
NDP: 16.0 (-1.0)
Green: 13.4 (+2.2)
Bloc Quebecois: 9.8 (+0.6)
Undecided: 14.7

Regionally, the Liberals have managed to take back the lead in Ontario – the first time in a long time in an Ekos poll – and the Cons have really slipped back in Quebec (specific numbers available at the aforementioned and linked to Kady article).

Speaking of Kady, her analysis of the poll:

…let’s take a moment to ponder the above snapshot in time, if only to note that the Conservatives are the only party whose support seems to have shifted outside the margin of error — and not in the right direction, at least from their perspective.

On a related note (IMO), I note the Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament Facebook group has now climbed past 81 000 members.

    I am cautiously optimistic at the early results, as it seems this time Canadians are waking up to Harper’s reliance on voter apathy.

    Also the Grits shouldn’t read too much into this, if anything what the past year’s worth of polls are showing is that any support may be a mile wide …but only an inch deep.

    Still good news, and it should put any dreams Harper was having about a majority win in the spring on indefinite hold.
