Toronto, October 20th – In a random sampling of
public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 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."
