Conservative support hits lowest point since Harper became PM: polls

This is the last of a three-part series appraising the support of the three major political parties at national and provincial levels. Today we look at the Conservatives.

By any objective measure, 2013 has been a very bad year for the federal Conservatives.

But some provincial conservative parties of various stripes are doing much better.
