Liberals Tanking In New Polling

On the cusp of a no-confidence motion, the Liberal Party faces an increasingly hostile political environment, a new poll by SES research indicates. The Liberals have lost ground across the entire nation, both in total and within each region, with most of the gains going to the NDP (via Newsbeat1). They now lead the Conservatives by only a six-point margin, down by half in three weeks (Oct 27 poll in parentheses):

Liberal: 34% (40%)
CPC: 28% (28%)
NDP: 20% (15%)
BQ: 14% (12%)

Even in the east, where the Liberals enjoyed a majority three weeks ago, their numbers have slipped dramatically:

Liberal: 43% (57%)
CPC: 35% (26%)
NDP: 17% (14%)
BQ: N/A (N/A)

Looks like an excellent time to hold an election, if these numbers and trends continue to hold up.
