3. "Only one in three canadians believe he lied..."
That's good news to the pollster? "Oh sir, a third of the nation think you're a crook. But it could be two thirds, so that's good news."

Lala-land, truly.

2. Take away the undecided, and close to half say he is lying
Plus, almost everyone thinks the libel suit is stupid (I think it reminds people of Mulroney).
