Liberals lead in Etobicoke-Lakeshore
Bernard Trottier in second
TORONTO September 18th, 2015 - In a random
sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll among 835 voters in the
federal riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore, more than 4-in-10 will vote for the
Liberal candidate, James Maloney (41%) while one third will support the
Conservative incumbent, Bernard Trottier (33%). One fifth will vote NDP, for
Phil Trotter (22%) and few will vote Green (4%). The Conservative vote is
common to younger groups (35 to 44 - 41%) and mid income groups ($40K to $60K -
48%). The Liberal vote is older (45 to 54 - 50%), female (44%) and wealthier
($100K to $250K - 52%). The NDP vote is common to the youngest (37%).
“This has been a long-time Liberal riding, and it turned
over to the Conservatives in 2011 when the Liberal leader, Michael Ignatieff
ran here. It appears that, now a less vilified candidate is running, the riding
is returning to its default red hue," said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
