Catholic World News - April 27, 2011

    Ah, but when all voters polled are counted, this same poll has the Conservatives as the preference of only 35% of voters. Ignatieff's Liberals and the socialist NDP have 52% between them and could easily combine to form the government after the May 2 election.
