New AR Poll: 8-pt Conservative Lead

Angus-Reid has released a new poll today, confirming the EKOS poll from Thursday. It was taken between September 23 and September 24 and involved 997 Canadians.

I only have time right now for a brief summary, but will return with a more detailed analysis later today.

The national result:

Conservatives - 37%
Liberals - 29%
New Democrats - 16%
Bloc Quebecois - 9%
Greens - 8%

So the Liberal and Conservative results are almost identical to EKOS's poll. The Ontario results of 44% for the Conservatives and 30% for the Liberals, however, is much worse for Michael Ignatieff.

The poll also had leadership questions and full regional breakdowns, which I will address later today. I'll also project the seat totals from this poll.
