Libs gain at expense of Conservatives, but Mulcair favoured as leader who would make best Prime Minister: Forum Research poll

The federal Liberal Party has gained voter support at the expense of the governing Conservatives while public approval of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s performance has plunged, new polls suggest.

The Forum Research survey, however, also found that NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, pictured, leads when voters are asked which of the leaders would make the best Prime Minister. Twenty nine per cent of the Forum respondents chose Mr. Mulcair, 25 per cent favoured Prime Minister Stephen Harper and 19 per cent selected Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.The Hill Times photographs by Jake Wright
