EKOS Research Associates was commissioned by the CBC to conduct a poll on the current political crisis in Ottawa. The survey was conducted December 2 and 3, 2008 with a random sample of 2536 Canadians aged 18 and over.


  • The Conservatives are winning the initial public opinion war.
  • There seems, however, to be a modest night-to-night trend that favours the coalition on all measures (i.e., vote intention, three-partner coalition).
  • While too early to say, it may be that the public are digging into deep and irreconcilable differences on this issue.
  • What started as a political skirmish over the economy now has the potential to produce deep wounds to national unity.
  • Bottom Line: Despite initial favourable response to the Conservatives, the public are flummoxed and angry. Dispute seems to be aggravating existing national fault lines.
