New Poll Released: Greens hit new high, Liberals down

A new poll released by Leger Marketing (available here) has the pushed the Greens to a new all-time high in both the rolling five poll avereage and the weighted five poll average.

The party standings in the rolling and weighted trend lines are now:

With this poll, the Greens have now broken the 9% barrier in both trend lines, a barrier which they have never broken with even one of their trend lines in the past.

Conversely, the Liberals continue their downward turn and are now, for the first time since late November, below the Conservatives in both trend lines.  Although, to be fair, the margin of error for a series of polls like the ones we are using, is usually roughly between +/- 1.5% and +/- 1.9% depending on the total sample size of all the polls.  So, given the MOE, the Liberals and the Conservatives are still tied.  But the symbolism of the red lines dipping below the blue lines on this chart for the first time in a while, will surely not be missed.

The individual results for this poll were:  Cons: 35, Lib: 32, NDP: 13, Bloc: (not stated), Greens: 9.
