Poll: Three Way Race, Without Quebec
March 2nd, 2014 | Poletical News
Between February 5th and 23rd, Poletical asked Canadians who they would vote for if an election were held today. Unintentionally, Poletical did not receive any data from Quebec. The poll was shared on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and various forms of social media. With 567 single votes from Canadian IP addresses, not much has changed since the last poll was conducted in November, which showed Liberal support at 36%. Since then and without data from Quebec, Liberal support has dropped by 6%. This latest poll reflects a three way race between the Liberals, the Conservatives, and the NDP.
Poletical has collected specific data from each province. The results break down below with a map of the provincial results, showing the NDP leading in BC and the Tories and Liberals tied in Ontario.
Despite its small sample size, this poll offers a glimpse at Canadian voting intentions without the province of Quebec. Contrary to most federal polling data, the NDP lead in BC while the Conservatives hold a slight edge over the Liberals in Ontario. Only 4% of respondents said they were undecided. Provincially, the number of Canadians who are undecided varies significantly.
BC: 3% undecided, 3% other
Alberta: 8% undecided
Sask: 8% undecided
Manitoba: 0% undecided
Ontario: 0% undecided
Atlantic: 0% undecided
The highest number of respondents came from BC, Alberta and Ontario. Saskatchewan and Manitoba offered the fewest number of respondents. In total, 567 votes were obtained from Canadian IP addresses. Multiple votes from one IP address were discarded. Votes from outside of Canada or from 'unknown' locations were also discarded.
