Tories Hold Steady, Liberals Gain in Nanos Poll

A new Nanos Poll suggests that the Robocall scandal has had no effect on the Governing Tories. The poll took place between February 25-29 and asked 1,203 random Canadians who were above the age of 18. The poll is accurate within 2.8% 19 times out of 20. It found a steady hold for Tories, 1.9% jump for the Liberals and 0.2% decline for the NDP among respondents.

Below is a comparison of the parties' standings in the last poll and the election.
