I've asked around and every woman I have spoken to agrees: Ignatief creeps us out.
Maybe we need to take a close look at this guys past, there's got to be a reason for this.
I actually think that she is on to something. Looking at the latest Nanos poll, it appears that not only is support from women strong for PM Harper, but a surprising support from young people is starting to show up as well.
Conservative 38% +6
Liberal 33% -1
NDP 15% -4
BQ 10% +1
Green 5% -2
Funny how this CTV interview only mentions the Conservatives are "slightly" ahead of the Liberals.
Another Nanos poll on leadership has PM Harper at 99 and Iggy at 54 with Layton closing in on Iggy at 40.
On the question of most trustworthy leader:
Males 15.2 .....35.1
Female 12.9 .....27.6
18 to 29 7.1 .....25.4
30 to 39 11.1 .....26.7
Those are startling numbers. Is it because Iggy is older that his support is down with both females and younger people? His numbers are no better with the older generation. It appears that Canadians of all age groups and genders are supporting PM Harper. Must suck to be Iggy right now. Even my husband, who refuses to talk politics with me, mentioned tonight that Iggy is an old guy who should go back to the US.
Also Ipsos released a new poll as well:
The Conservatives have the support of 39 per cent of decided voters, according to the Ipsos Reid survey, commissioned by Canwest News Service and Global National. The Tory support level is unchanged from the last Ipsos national poll on Aug. 21.
The Liberals have 30 per cent support, up two percentage points from Aug. 21. The NDP dropped two points to 12 per cent, while the Green party fell two points to eight per cent. The NDP received 18 per cent support in the last federal election in October 2008, but have fallen to 12 per cent in four separate Ipsos polls since then.
Who will you vote for if an election is called?
