45% of respondents said a low Canadian dollar that supports manufacturing was better for the country than a high dollar bolstered by resource exports, compared to 35% who disagreed.Are you kidding me!? Maybe people are do like that concept more, but what policies are going to come out of this if you follow it? Apparently no one thinks about that.
... Anyways, the poll is slightly different than we've seen from the last while, returning more to the mean shown by pre-Ipsos polls. Full numbers below, changes are from the last Forum poll:
Forum Research (Federal - May 24, 2012)
New Democrats: 36% (=) - 136 seats (+6 seats)
Conservatives: 32% (-1%) - 118 seats (+6 seats)
Liberal Party: 20% (-2%) - 49 seats (-13 seats)
Bloc Québécois (QC Only): 21% (-2%) - 4 seats (+1 seat)
Green Party: 6% (+4) - 1 seat (=)
Fairly standard poll for these days, the Liberals hitting the 20% or high teens on a consistent basis is not good, however. We need to ramp up our efforts, languishing in third place isn't the best idea. I suppose, though, it starts with a new leader...
