A check-in on the public mood of Canadians with CTV News' pollster Nik Nanos and host Michael Stittle.

    Anger towards government at an all-time high

    Anger towards government at an all-time high

    Pessimism and anger towards the federal government is at an all-time high, according to Nanos tracking. Pollster Nik Nanos and host Michael Stittle discuss the challenge this poses for the Liberals in the lead-up to an election.  Also, what are the major issues Canadians are worried about, and did the federal budget address them?

    Nanos tracking: Is a new trend emerging?

    After months of the Conservatives enjoying a clear advantage in popular support over the Liberals, the latest Nanos ballot tracking shows Pierre Poilievre's party went from a 20-point lead to a 12-point lead.  

    Pollster Nik Nanos and Trend Line host Michael Stittle discuss possible reasons behind the Conservative drop, and what might Quebec have to do with it?  

    Nik and Michael also discuss Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's war of words with the premiers over the carbon tax.

    How the NDP's trying to avoid getting 'crushed' in the next election

    How the NDP's trying to avoid getting 'crushed' in the next election

    Will a soft NDP vote benefit the Liberals in the next federal election? 

    Pollster Nik Nanos and host Michael Stittle discuss what the NDP is doing to differentiate itself from the Liberals, after two years of propping them up in Parliament. Also, why Liberal support might actually be higher than the national numbers indicate, and what the 'true' Conservative advantage is over the Liberals.  

    And as Canadians pay their respects to late prime minister Brian Mulroney, Nik and Michael rewind to 1988 when the Progressive Conservative leader was seeking reelection. His party was trailing the Liberals in the polls but managed to turn it around.

    Liberals in 'disaster territory' according to Nanos

    Liberals in 'disaster territory' according to Nanos

    CTV News' Michael Stittle and pollster Nik Nanos look at new numbers showing the federal Conservatives have opened up a 20-point lead over the Liberals – will it hold up?

    Then, there was a federal byelection in Durham, Ont. Nik says the CPC victory was never in doubt, but we did learn something else that should be interesting to the Liberals. 

    Also, there’s a federal budget on the horizon – Nik says it’s another chance for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to change the channel and stem the LPC polling slump. 

    Finally, we have new data on how Canadians feel about the standard of living for the next generation – and the numbers are dismal.

    Poilievre's Conservatives expand support over Trudeau's Liberals as would-be voters' preferred party

    Pollster Nik Nanos and host Michael Stittle discuss Pierre Poilievre’s Conservatives increasing their support as the party Canadians would vote for, while the Liberals are in a statistical tie with the New Democrats.

    Poilievre's personal numbers continue to trend sharply upwards while his party saw a 17-point advantage over the federal Liberals in the new Nanos tracking.

    'Holy moly guacamole'

    'Holy moly guacamole'

    Whether it's the ballot number or seat projections, latest Nanos Research data shows the Conservatives would easily win a "clear majority" if an election were held today.

    Pollster Nik Nanos and Michael Stittle take a look at the growing gap between the federal Conservatives and Liberals, and the narrowing one between the Liberals and NDP.  In a 'what's that about?' segment, Nik analyzes the Liberal attacks on a senior Conservative adviser and her links to the grocery sector.

    And Nanos Research has done a few surveys for CTV News that look into potential strains on U.S.-Canada relations.

Please no empty Star Trek references

As a Trekkie, I’d appreciate you drop the Star Trek references when Nik Nanos calls it Star Track. Thanks. 😂

Lots fun

The most humorous presentation of polls out there. And Nanos knows his polls.
