The love for Prime Minister Stephen Harper appears to be growing in Nova Scotia.
Results of a new Thinkwell Research Survey released yesterday suggest Harper is the top choice amongst 404 Nova Scotians questioned about which Canadian party leader would make the best prime minister.
Harper received 30 per cent support, up 10 points from September. NDP Leader Jack Layton came second at 24 per cent, with Michael Igantieff of the Liberals slipping seven points to third at 19 per cent. Green Party Leader Elizabeth May had eight per cent support.
The survey gives the NDP 34 per cent support in Nova Scotia federally, followed by the Liberals (33), Conservatives (30) and Greens (three).
The survey conducted between Oct. 16 and 22 has a margin of error of 4.9 per cent.
