Joe Oliver with solid lead in
NDP, Liberals split
TORONTO AUGUST 6th- In a random sampling of
public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 709 voters in the federal riding
of Eglinton-Lawrence, more than 4-in-10 will vote for Finance Minister Joe
Oliver (41%), followed by about one third who will vote for the Liberal
candidate, Marco Mendicino (34%) and one fifth will support an NDP candidate
(the previous candidate’s name was used - 20%). Oliver’s support is common to
mid age groups (45 to 54 - 46%), males (44%) and mid income groups ($60K to
$80K - 63%).
“The Finance Minister looks very comfortable in his riding,
and that’s because the NDP, without even a nominated candidate, achieves one
fifth of the vote. If this is extrapolated across the country, the
Conservatives may be in safer territory than we think," said Forum
Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
