Leger Poll: Form Government and Parties Canadians

leger poll: More significantly, the poll also suggests the Liberals have opened up a 14-point lead over the Conservatives when it comes to which of the two main parties Canadians would prefer to see form government after the Oct. 21 vote, according to CTV. At the same time, however, the poll suggests more Canadians are worried about the prospect of four more years of Trudeau's Liberals than they are about the Conservatives regaining power. The Leger poll suggests the Liberals have closed the gap slightly with the front-running Conservatives since April and dissatisfaction with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government has eased a bit. The poll of 1,528 Canadians, randomly recruited from Leger's online panel, was conducted between June 7 and 10 for The Canadian Press; polling experts say online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not generate a random sample of the population. Another 13 per cent said they would vote for Jagmeet Singh's NDP, 11 per cent for Elizabeth May's Green party and three per cent for Maxime Bernier's fledgling People's Party of Canada. Thirty-eight per cent of respondents said they would vote for Andrew Scheer's Conservatives if an election were held today, versus 29 per cent for Trudeau's Liberals -- a two-point dip for the Tories and a two-point uptick for the Grits.
