New HD Poll: 7-point Conservative Lead

CTV News has a little teaser of a Canadian Press report on the latest Harris-Decima poll, taken between October 1 and October 12 and involving "just over" 2,000 Canadians. The results:

Conservatives - 35%
Liberals - 28%
New Democrats - 15%
Bloc Quebecois - 10%
Greens - 10%

Certainly better news for the Liberals, and worse (though on the whole, a large lead is always good) news for the Conservatives. But this one looks to be a little bit on the outskirts of what we've been seeing lately.

No full regional results, but some similar to the Ipsos-Reid poll earlier this week. The Tories are at 40% in Ontario with the Liberals behind at 36%. The Bloc leads in Quebec with 41%, followed by the Liberals at 24% and the Tories at 15%.

I'll post more about this poll when I have more information.
