OTTAWA - While Justin Trudeau is getting Liberal voters excited in that party's leadership race, there are no signs his candidacy has ignited a new Trudeaumania among all voters.

A new poll done exclusively for QMI Agency shows that voters in Canada continue to remain divided largely along the same partisan lines as they did in the 2011 general election.

Abacus Data found that, across the country, the Conservatives have the support of 35% of voters, the NDP 31% and the Liberals 21%.

"Although the Liberal leadership race is in full swing, it has had little effect on Liberal fortunes across the country," Abacus CEO David Coletto said. "Support for the Conservatives is down from the 2011 election but neither the NDP nor the Liberals have gained either.

"Like much of Canada, the federal political landscape seems to be in a deep freeze."

For this poll, Abacus paid particular attention to Ontario voters and found the city of Toronto remains one of the last bastions of strong Liberal support in the country.
