Abacus Data poll: Liberals still lead with 36%, Conservatives at 30%, NDP 16%

A new federal poll from Abacus Data was released this morning and shows the Liberals holding on to first place with 36% of national voting intentions. The Conservatives remain stable at 30%.

The regional numbers would point to a significant LPC advantage in the seat projection: The Liberals are ahead in Atlantic Canada by 20+ points. In Québec, the LPC leads the Bloc Québécois by 6 points. In Ontario, the Liberals stand at 43% and the CPC, 31%. 

The Conservatives lead by comfortable margins in Alberta and the Prairies. In British Columbia, only ten points separate the Liberals (34%) and the third-place NDP (24%). The Conservatives stand at 28% in the province.
