Minority government

Toronto, October 20th – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Pollamong 1206 Canadian voters, amongst those decided and leaning, a third (29.9%) say they would support the Conservatives, while a similar proportion (31.7%) say they support the Liberals.


One-sixth (17.5%) say they will support the NDP.


1 in 10 (8.3%) say they would support the Greens.


About 1 in 10 (9%) say they would support the BQ, while a few would support the PPC (3%) or another party (0.5%).


We expect a minority parliament with the Liberals winning 140 seats, and the Conservatives winning 111.


The NDP project to win 38, the BQ to win 48, and the Greens to win 1.



 “A minority parliament,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research. “The narrow fight for support between the Liberals and Conservatives ends in a minority. Now that the campaign ends, the jockeying for position in a deadlocked house begins."
