Razor-Thin Liberal Majority
Likely to hold a one seat majority in an election that tightened
toward the end.
Toronto, May 29th – In
a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 3086 Nova
Scotia voters, for those decided and leaning, almost 4 in 10 (38%) will vote
Liberal, more than a third will vote Progressive Conservative (35%), and just
under a quarter will vote NDP (23%). (4%) say they will support the Nova Scotia
Liberals 26, Conservatives 18, NDP 7
A strong showing for
both the Progressive Conservatives and NDP, their campaigns managed to reduce
the Liberal majority from 34 seats to 26.
PC's increase their total from 10 to 18.
The NDP increase
their total from 5 to 7.
Liberal numbers grew progressively weaker throughout the campaign. If the
campaign were a week longer it's very possible we may have seen a minority
government,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
