Cape Breton Post - - News -

HAL­I­FAX - A pub­lic opin­ion poll is sug­gest­ing the Lib­er­als and Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tives were in a dead heat head­ing into the fi­nal full week of the elec­tion cam­paign.

The Fo­rum Re­search sur­vey of 1,057 vot­ers found the Lib­er­als were in the lead with 37 per cent sup­port, a drop of five per­cent­age points since the com­pany’s most re­cent sur­vey at the be­gin­ning of the cam­paign. Mean­while, the Tories gained five points to reach 35 per cent sup­port while sup­port for the NDP re­mained un­changed at 25 per cent. With a poll this size, the re­sults are con­sid­ered ac­cu­rate to within plus or mi­nus three per­cent­age points, which means the par­ties are sta­tis­ti­cally tied for sup­port among lean­ing vot­ers.
