The wind appears to be leaving the sails of the Federal Conservatives, according to the latest numbers from Nanos Research.
The research institute found the Tories have had their support dip to 31.5 per cent support, the lowest level since the last Federal election.
It also has the Liberals on the up-swing, as they are now virtually tied with the Conservatives.
Nik Nanos said the Conservative slide is turning into something of a pattern.
“When you look at the Conservative trend over the last two years especially, what you can see is that it’s sloping downward,” Nanos said.
He points out that there has been a surge in undecided voters, primarily from the Conservatives support group, who are waiting to see which direction they will vote.
“The Conservative numbers went up when they a marquee initiative, that showed they were being proactive,” Nanos said.
The most recent numbers have the Liberals nipping at the Conservatives’ heels with over 29 per cent support, which Nanos feels is being driven by the latest leadership campaign.
The New Democratic Party, meawhile, are keeping the political scene interesting and ensuring a three-way race with 27.2 per cent.
