CARP Poll shows Conservative support from seniors is plummeting

CARP - A New Vision of Aging for Canada - Advocacy, Benefits, Community & Zoomer.
This poll is often a bellwether for the election results.

During the month of February, support for Conservatives dropped 10 points.

There are two findings which do not bode well for the Conservatives.
While the NDP is the second choice of one quarter of voters (26%),
followed by the Green Party (14%) and the Liberals (13%), very few
members make the Conservative party their second choice (8%). In
addition, the proportion of undecided members in our latest poll is
significantly lower than in the past. Taken together, these two findings
indicate the Conservative party has now declined to its core base, and
has very few options for gaining additional votes.
