Editor's note: The Globe and Mail is excited to launch a new digital service for subscribers who crave in-depth political coverage. Every Tuesday afternoon, subscribers will have advance access to Nanos Research's weekly tracking poll, not publicly released until Wednesday, showing the ups-and-downs of the federal parties and leaders in the lead-up to the 2015 election.

Readers can track sentiment about the parties through the Nanos Party Power Index, a composite of public opinion that gives a glimpse into Canadians' confidence in the politicians vying for power this year.

The index can be filtered by geography and gender, so you can get a closer look at where support is coming from and who the parties are counting on.

As with all polls, the trends are important. Numbers are available through the last year-and-a-half, so you can see how support has risen and fallen over an eventful eighteen months.

In our first week, see by how much the Liberals are leading in the Nanos Party Power Index and why Nanos calls them "the parking place for Canadians disgruntled with the Harper government." (Plus the good and bad news for Thomas Mulcair.) Read more.
