The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey indicates support for the Tories has slipped to 29 per cent - the first time in a year that the governing party has dipped below the 30 per cent threshold.
And the beneficiary appears to be the NDP, not the Liberals.
While the Grits remain stalled at 27 per cent, New Democrat support has reached 20 per cent - a level of support it hasn't enjoyed since shortly after the last election in October 2008.
The survey was conducted April 15-25, as the government was reeling from allegations of unethical - and possibly illegal - conduct by former cabinet minister Helena Guergis and her husband, former Tory MP Rahim Jaffer.
The telephone poll of 2,014 Canadians is considered accurate within a margin of error of 2.2 percentage points, 19 times in 20.
Conservatives down 3% poll to poll, but the Liberals are down 2%. Great poll for the NDP, up 3% to 20% (I'd wait for others before declaring a orange wave, because previously polling shows the NDP below their 2008 total, on a fairly consistent basis).
A pretty pathetic showing for the two main parties, both below 30% and further indication that the public has no affection for either at the moment.
