By the end of the week the three day rolling average will give a clearer picture of the impact of the debates on the shape of the campaign, if any impact at all. The ballot box trends remain stable night over night with the Tories at 39.9%, the Grits at 30.4%, the NDP at 16.3%, the BQ at 9.1% and the Greens at 3.8% nationally.
Support for the Bloc Quebecois has increased over the past two nights and is now at 38.6% support in Quebec, followed by the Conservatives at 23.1%, the NDP at 17.9% and the Liberals at 16.0%. Liberal support in Quebec has dropped for three days in succession. The Conservatives and Liberals are still tied in Ontario and Atlantic Canada while the Conservatives lead in the Prairies and BC.
Policy still tops the list as the key factor in the vote decision of Canadians at 52.7%.
