With two weeks to go before election day, the Tories continue to hold on to a double-digit lead over the Liberals, according to the latest poll conducted by Nanos Research.
The daily tracking poll, conducted exclusively for CP24, CTV and the Globe and Mail, finds the Conservatives with the support of 39 per cent of decided voters.
Of the 991 people who were surveyed between Friday and Sunday, 29 per cent back the Liberals, while 17.4 per cent support the NDP.
The Bloc Quebecois has the support of 8.6 per cent of respondents, while about three per cent support the Green Party.
Seventeen per cent of people who were surveyed haven't decided who they are voting for.
The poll is considered accurate to within 3.1 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
