The provincial Liberals have made some gains according to the latest approval numbers, but pollster Angus Reid says they have a lot of work to do.
Angus Reid's Mario Canseco says while the Liberals gained two points in the latest poll, now at 31 percent approval, they remain behind the NDP who are sitting at 46 percent, and he says they need more than a few percent.
"They've been gaining two points here - one point there. We have less than four months to go before the election and what's important here is trying to sense of where is that base of support going to be coming from.
Canseco says the party is going to have to work hard to gain women and Metro Vancouver voters.
He says they also need votes from the BC Conservatives who are falling apart and hang on to voters from the last election, 16 percent of whom say they will now vote NDP.
