Volatile voters can't settle on one political partyRecommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
OTTAWA (CP) - Canadians appear to be a fickle bunch when it comes to deciding what political party to support.
That's the finding of a new Decima poll provided to The Canadian Press. The survey suggests that a whopping 57 per cent of voters have changed their political allegiances over the past few months. That's up from 48 per cent of wavering voters two years ago. The poll of 1,000 adults found that the most mercurial voters were those who identified with the Green party.
The Conservatives had the most determined stable of supporters.
Decima President Bruce Anderson says it all means people shouldn't make too much about small shifts between the parties in national polls.
A Decima poll released Tuesday had the Conservatives at 35 per cent support nationally and the Liberals at 31 per cent.
