New National Poll Says Tories Have Slim Lead
Prince George, B.C. – The latest national poll of Canadian voters shows the federal election is a very close race.
The Mainstreet/Postmedia survey shows that among decided and leaning voters, the Conservatives lead with 31% the NDP have 30% and the Liberals have 29%. The Green Party is at the back of the pack with 6%“
“Whether the post debate bump enjoyed by Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party can be maintained, only time will tell, but this race has only just begun”says Quito Maggi, president of Mainstreet Research
The survey also indicates 79% want Green Party Leader Elizabeth May included in future debates and that despite the length of the campaign, most Canadians are following the campaign.
“The economy continues to be a major issue for the coming election as recent world events and oil prices affect the economy and employment negatively across Canada. Canadians are feeling less secure than they were a year ago, 44% vs just 14% who say they feel more secure. In fact, over 60% of Canadians believe we are already in a recession, compared to just 17% who say Canada is not in a recession. As that financial insecurity increases, look for greater scrutiny of each parties economic platforms” adds Maggi.
