A union-commissioned poll shows provincial Conservative support has surged into double digit territory, Public Eye has exclusively learned. The poll, which surveyed 1,000 British Columbians between August 16 and 31, puts the Conservatives at 15.8 percent - just two percentage points below the governing Liberals. By comparison, the New Democrats are at 34.0 percent, the Greens are at 12.1 percent and the undecideds are at 13.1 percent. That leaves 7.2 percent of survey respondents who refused to say who they'd vote for, won't vote or would cast their ballot for another party. With the undecideds factored out, the New Democrats are at 42 percent, the Liberals at 23 percent, the Conservatives at 21 percent and the Greens at 15 percent.
