The Liberals and Conservatives are in a virtual tie, while the NDP is drawing just over 18 per cent, according to the final Mainstreet Research poll of the 2019 election campaign.
In the firm’s phone survey of 2,032 Canadians, conducted between Oct. 19-20, 32.2 per cent of leaning and decided respondents said they’d vote for the Conservatives if the election was held today, while 31.6 per cent said they’d vote for the Liberals and 18.3 per cent said they’d cast a ballot for the NDP. Another 7.9 per cent chose the Bloc Québécois, 6.1 per cent backed the Greens, 2.8 per cent favoured Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party and 1.1 per cent said they’d vote for another party.
Compared to Saturday’s results, the Conservatives inched up by three-tenths of a point, the Liberals fell by 1.2 points, the Bloc is up by seven-tenths of a point, the Greens have risen up by 0.6 points, the People’s Party fell by half a point and the NDP’s numbers are stagnant.
