66 per cent of voters want change

An exclusive poll commissioned for CTV News highlights that a majority of voters want a change.

Nanos Research surveyed 1,000 adult Canadians and found the following:

  • Two in three respondents agree it is “time for a change in government.”
  • Harper’s position as the leader most trusted to manage the economy has fallen 10 points since 2009. He is now tied with NDP Leader Tom Mulcair. Liberal Justin Trudeau lags far behind.
  • More than four out of five agree it is important or somewhat important that the leaders attend the TV debates. Harper has so far refused to join the largest broadcasters’ planned debate.

Two out of three (66 per cent) of those polled agree it is “time for change,” while only 24 per say it is “not time for change” and 10 per cent remain unsure.

Those in the Prairies are the least likely to agree that it’s “time for change” (55 per cent) while those in Atlantic provinces appear hungriest for a different government (73 per cent).

When Nanos Research asked a similar, though differently-worded question in the summer of 2009, 59 per cent agreed that “Harper has had his chance and it is time for a change,” while 32 per cent said he “has done a good enough job to deserve re-election.” Ten per cent were unsure.

That question was asked of 1,002 adult Canadians as part of a random telephone survey conducted between July 30 and Aug. 2, 2009. It was considered accurate within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
