|L-R Lola AAaliyah -Sarah Fisher-Michelle Smith|
It is very important that you not only know which party you would like to represent you in this years Federal Election; but you must understand what each candidate individually represents for your area.
|L-R Tylaine Duggan- Brooke Aaliyah -Dewitt Lee|
So the burning question is who do you think will represents your area, your concerns and your needs.
According to numbers released on Oct. 18, the day before the election:
The Liberals have 37.3 per cent support nationally
The Conservatives have 30.5 per cent support nationally
The NDP has 22.1 per cent support nationally
The Greens are at 4.7 per cent support nationally
Poll respondents were asked "If a federal election were held today, could you please rank your top two current local voting preferences?"
Compared to a month ago, the responses show the Liberals up six points, the NDP down nine points, and the Conservatives up two points.
Up until the Thanksgiving Weekend, the Liberals and Conservatives were locked in a tight two-way race, pollster Nik Nanos told CTV News Channel on Sunday.
"We saw a two-way race going into Thanksgiving weekend," he said. "But after Thanksgiving weekend, after the pumpkin pie, the Liberals came out … with about a six-point advantage and they've been able to hold onto that advantage in the closing week of the campaign."
According to Nanos Research, the Liberals have benefited from a decline in NDP support over the course of the campaign.
"It took about 66 days for Canadians to figure out who the main challenger would be to (Conservative Leader) Stephen Harper, and it ended up being (Liberal Leader) Justin Trudeau," Nanos said. "The reality is that the NDP, although there's good will toward them, have been squeezed by strategic voters."
Nanos said the shift from NDP to Liberal support can be seen in the two parties' trend lines, which have been mirror images of each other in the last month.
"When the NDP went up, the Liberals went down, and when the Liberals went up, the NDP went down," he said. "So what we've seen is movement from the New Democrats towards the Liberals in order to block Stephen Harper."
