BC Election Down to the
NDP hold slight lead in popular support, but Liberals right
Toronto, May 8th – In
a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1076 British
Columbia voters, amongst those decided and leaning, on
election day more than 4-in-10 (41%) say they will support the NDP, (39%) say
they will support the Liberals, (17%) say they will support the Green Party,
with (3%) saying they will support another party.
Green Party to hold balance of power
pre-election tracking, Forum Research projects a BC minority government with
the Liberals securing 42 seats, the NDP securing 42 seats, the Green Party
winning 2 seats, and 1 seat to be won by another party/independent.
gruelling campaign, the result will come down to the narrowest of margins: the
NDP will slightly edge the Liberals in popular vote, but not in seats, with the
two parties likely to secure 42 each. The razor thin result means that Andrew
Weaver's Green Party and its two seats can become kingmaker, potentially
offering a majority to whichever party offers the most aligned vision for the
years to come," said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
