Voters Like Idea of a Liberal-NDP Merger

CTV reports that a Decima Research poll found that 25 per cent of Canadians believed the two parties should unite. The Decima poll suggests luring voters away from the NDP will be crucial if the Liberals hope to recapture power.

Bob Rae, a former NDP premier of Ontario, advocates uniting "progressive'' voters while Michael Ignatieff, a rookie Toronto MP and acclaimed scholar, is urging the party to plant its flag firmly on the centre-left of the political spectrum. Both are very good friends and both are declared candidates seeking the Liberal Party leadership.
