Liberals continue to enjoy advantage on Nanos Index and in accessible voters (ending December 18, 2015)

The Nanos Party Power Index

  • Nanos Party Power Index – The Index, which is a composite of a series of questions including ballot preferences and perceptions of the federal parties leaders still has the Liberals with strong brand scores. The Liberals scored 66.0 out of a possible 100 points, near their 12 month high of 68.6 points, the NDP scored 48.6 points, the Conservatives 43.9 points, the Greens 34.8 points and the BQ 25.6 points (QC only).
  • Accessible Voters – More than six of ten Canadians (62.8%) would consider voting Liberal compared to 43.3% who would consider voting NDP, 40.0% who would consider voting Conservative, and 32.0% who would consider voting Green – a new 12 month high for the Green Party of Canada.

The team at Nanos in conjunction with Klipfolio have launched our new live political data portal where you run the numbers you want and can explore the trends and data you need.  This is part of our campaign, not only to provide the most reliable data to Canadians but to let them use it as they wish. We were the first to do nightly tracking and now we are the first research organization to post live public opinion data for Canadians. Here’s the link to check it out

The views of 1,000 respondents are compiled into a party power brand index for each party that goes from 0 to 100, where 0 means that the party has no brand power and 100 means it has maximum brand power. A score above 50 is an indication of brand power for the party and its leader at this time.

The important factors in this weekly tracking include the direction of the brand strength or weakness and also the brand power of one federal party relative to another.

The data is based on random telephone interviews with 1,000 Canadians, using a four week rolling average of 250 respondents each week, 18 years of age and over. The random sample of 1,000 respondents may be weighted by age and gender using the latest census information for Canada, and the sample is geographically stratified to be representative of Canada.

The interviews are compiled into a four week rolling average of 1,000 interviews where each week, the oldest group of 250 interviews is dropped and a new group of 250 interviews is added. The current wave of tracking is based on a four-week rolling average of 1,000 Canadians (250 per week) ending December 18th.

A random telephone survey of 1,000 Canadians is accurate 3.1 percentage points, plus or minus, 19 times out of 20.
