HALIFAX - A new poll that comes amid speculation of a Nova Scotia election call suggests the governing NDP are trailing the Opposition Liberals.

The poll released today by Corporate Research Associates indicates the Liberals are ahead with 41 per cent support among decided voters.

Premier Darrell Dexter's NDP government is 10 points behind at 31 per cent, while the Progressive Conservatives have 25 per cent support.

The poll, conducted by phone, suggests that the number of undecided Nova Scotia voters is 41 per cent.

The survey was conducted from Aug. 8 to Aug. 31 and sampled 1,601 people in the province, with results considered accurate to within 2.4 percentage points.

Dexter became the first NDP premier in Atlantic Canada when he won the last provincial election in 2009.
