Trudeau and O’Toole neck and neck with less than two weeks left in campaign: Leger poll

by Christopher Nardi

Adding tension is the fact that two-thirds of decided voters say they won’t change their minds before voting, and half won’t watch debates

Erin O’Toole’s momentum seems to have stalled as Conservative and Liberal support is at a deadlock just hours before the second French debate of this federal election, according to a new Postmedia-Leger poll.

“We have a neck-and-neck race,” Leger executive vice-president Andrew Enns said in an interview.

As party leaders prepare for the second of three election debates at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, the Conservatives and Liberals are both scoring 33 per cent among decided voters, according to the poll, which surveyed 3,000 Canadians via an online panel between Sept. 3 and Sept. 6.

That’s good news for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, and potentially eyebrow-raising for O’Toole’s Conservatives.
