Liberals and Tories deadlocked as parties make final push ahead of election day – .


TORONTO – As federal party leaders make their final push with Canadian voters, new poll data suggests the Liberals and Conservatives are at an impasse.

According to poll figures released Sunday by Nanos Research, commissioned by CTV News and The Globe and Mail, only 0.3 percentage point separate the Liberals and the Conservatives.

The Liberals vote 30.8 percent, down slightly from the 31.3 percent they had in the previous day’s poll. The Conservatives saw their number of polls drop from 29.2% to 30.5%.

Meanwhile, the NDP votes at a constant rate of 21.0 percent, down from 20.9 percent the day before.

The People’s Party of Canada saw its poll count drop from 7.3 percent to 5.6 percent. The party now sits below the Bloc Québécois, which is 6.5 percent in the polls. The Greens are in sixth place, with 4.7% support.

Of those surveyed, 8.4 percent are still undecided.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau also holds the lead as the preferred prime minister, with 29.4 percent support. Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has 25.9% support for Preferred Prime Minister.

Support for NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh as preferred prime minister is on the rise. Singh has 22.3% support for the preferred prime minister, down from 20.9% on Saturday, while 10.9% are undecided.

This is the last Nanos poll before Canadians go to the polls on Monday. Leaders spend the day making their final appearance to voters.

Trudeau has planned a series of virtual and in-person events in at least six provinces, though details are slim in his official itinerary. O’Toole is hosting two events in the Greater Toronto Area while Singh has scheduled seven campaign stops in British Columbia.

METHODOLOGY

A random national telephone survey (terrestrial and cellular sample using live agents) conducted by Nanos Research throughout the campaign over a three-day period. For the numbers of the poll this Sunday, 800 eligible voters were questioned. Daily follow-up figures are based on a three-day rolling sample comprising 1,600 interviews. To update the tracking, a new maintenance day is added and the oldest day is deleted. The margin of error for a survey of 1,600 respondents is ± 2.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The sample of respondents is stratified geographically and by sex. Data may be age-weighted based on data from the 2016 Canadian Census administered by Statistics Canada. Reported percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.
