Saint John M-P Not Too Concerned Over Latest Polling

Support for the federal Liberals nationwide dropped by 5.6 per cent in June from May but they still lead in polling with 34.4 per cent support. The Conservatives are next at 29 per cent followed by the NDP at 24 per cent. 

Saint John M-P Rodney Weston tells CHSJ News the Harper Government faced a number of tough issues during the last session of Parliament so he's not surprised at the numbers, especially if the Opposition is doing its job properly. Weston compares polling numbers to peaks and valleys.

In Atlantic Canada, support for the Liberals and their new leader Justin Trudeau is at 47.2 per cent and that's the highest of any region in the country.
