Poll: Main Canadian parties in dead heat
by UPI

OTTAWA - Canada's two largest federal political parties are virtually tied for support in a poll published Wednesday by the Ottawa Citizen.

The Ipsos Reid survey of 1,000 adults March 18-19 found support for Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives remained unchanged with 35 percent support.

The Liberals, led by Stephane Dion, gained 2 percentage points since a poll conducted two weeks earlier and registered 33 percent support. However, that's within the poll's 3-percentage-point margin of error, Canwest News Service reported.

The socialist New Democratic Party lost 2 points to 13 percent, while the Green Party lost 1 point to garner 8 percent support, the report said.

Harper has a minority government that the Liberals have chosen not to target for early elections so far this year. Recent by-elections saw the Liberals gain one seat in Vancouver and two in Ontario, while the Conservatives gained one in Saskatchewan.
