Toronto’s unaffordability will lead people to consider leaving the city: Forum poll president

  Toronto’s unaffordability will lead people to consider leaving the city: Forum poll president A new poll from Forum Research shows a vast majority of Toronto residents consider the city to be unaffordable — and they report spending the highest proportion of their income on rent out of Canada’s major cities. “This is going to drive the affordability issue,” said Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research. “If you look across the country, it’s even higher than in Vancouver That’s a lot of disposable income and that’s now tied to people’s rent.

Justin Trudeau’s willingness to participate in twice as many French-language debates as he has in English has put a microscope on the importance of Quebec to winning a second majority mandate for the Liberals. And yet, Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet appears to be finding a more receptive audience in La Belle Province.

Two elections ago, the Bloc only managed to win four seats in Parliament. Today, a new poll suggest a surging Bloc is causing some major headaches for Canada’s three biggest political parties.

Leaders debate poll: Jagmeet Singh won, and not just among NDP fans

  Leaders debate poll: Jagmeet Singh won, and not just among NDP fans A new poll finds that among those who watched the debate, 32 per cent said the NDP leader did best—and 25 per cent of Liberal supporters said the same —just nine per cent fewer than those who picked Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau as the winner—and 29 per cent of unaligned voters also awarded the trophy to Singh. In a scrum on Monday night, a reporter asked Trudeau whether he had been taking particular aim at Singh on the debate stage because his left flank is feeling vulnerable, and while he side-stepped any direct answer, the poll results suggest that could well be it.

In the Quebec City and Beauce regions, where Conservatives won most of the ridings in the last election, the Bloc has doubled its vote share from 13 to 26 per cent, according to the poll done by Innovative Research Group for Maclean’s, vaulting the party to second place in the region and trailing the Tories by only six points.

Meanwhile, the Bloc is up seven points among rural Francophone Quebec voters in the last month alone, putting the party level with the Liberals at 31 per cent. (The Liberals can take some solace knowing they’re growing their share of the Anglo-Quebec vote.) And in the region around Montreal, off the Island, the Bloc is neck-in-neck with the Liberals among Francophones, with the sovereigntist party’s vote share increasing by four points in the last month to 31 per cent, only a single point behind the Liberals.

Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls

  Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls Gains by the Bloc in Quebec are erasing the Liberals' enduring seat advantage over the Conservatives. But in the rural regions of Quebec and the francophone areas in and around Montreal, the Liberals had been banking on winning seats with relatively low shares of the vote, benefiting from a vote split between the Conservatives, Bloc and New Democrats.That logic no longer holds now that the Bloc has moved into first place among francophones and (as a consequence) in the regions that were being targeted by the Liberals. That has the potential to paint dozens of seats Bloc blue rather than Liberal red.

Innovative Research . September 25, 2019. Evolution of voting intentions according to polls conducted during the pre-campaign period of the 2019 Canadian federal election, graphed from the data in the table below.

“The Liberals have been counting on picking up NDP seats, especially in Quebec, as a way of offsetting their losses elsewhere,” says Greg Lyle, the president of Innovative. “So the Bloc rising in Quebec is a real problem for them.”

“Even the Tories have to be looking over their shoulder and wondering what’s going on,” Lyle adds. “If Blanchet can build on his momentum, it’ll be a problem for the Liberals and Tories.”

As the horserace in the national polls stabilizes, Lyle says the regional numbers offer insight into shifting dynamics and who could win the most seats on Election Day.

Take Atlantic Canada, for example, where the Liberals swept up every seat four years ago. In 2015, Trudeau’s team flipped 14 ridings from Conservative to Liberal. And today, in those same 14 ridings, the Liberals are polling at 46 per cent support, according to Innovative, even better than their 2015 election day numbers. Meanwhile, the Conservatives have dropped to 25 per cent support in those former Tory ridings, less than their vote share in 2015.

The Liberals have also witnessed a recent momentum swing happening in B.C.’s lower mainland, where the Liberals won the majority of the seats four years ago and Team Trudeau is now polling at 46 per cent support, a better share than its 2015 results.

But in the battleground Greater Toronto region, the Conservatives are closing the gap. In 33 ridings that have been historically close between the Liberals and Conservatives, according to the Innovative report—the Tories have narrowed a gap of nine points behind the Liberals to four points in the last month, suggesting Andrew Scheer can count on more than the 3 seats the Conservatives won amongst those seats last election.

Similarly, in 19 Liberal-Conservative swing ridings scattered across the country—west of Ontario and outside Vancouver’s lower mainland—of which the Liberals won 13 seats four years ago with a six-point lead in the vote, Lyle says that Trudeau could be vulnerable to losing some of those seats as his lead across these regions is down to three points.

Back in Quebec, Jagmeet Singh’s strong debate performances, in English and French, have done little to stop the exodus in the province where Jack Layton’s NDP witnessed an Orange Wave eight years ago. Even in the 14 ridings where the NDP performed strongest four years ago under Tom Mulcair—winning 13 seats and garnering 36 per cent of the vote—Singh’s NDP is currently polling at 12 per cent, according to Innovative.

  This week’s 338Canada projection: Welcome to minority territory Philippe J. Fournier: A big shift in Quebec has changed the election picture with 10 days to go. Gone are the good odds of a Liberal majority.Naturally, all of these polls paint a starkly different picture when taken individually: Angus Reid’s numbers would probably mean the Conservative are headed towards a majority (or very close to it), whereas Innovative and Nanos’ data would lead to the Liberals winning the most seats (although not necessarily a majority). Conversely, Léger and Mainstreet’s numbers would most likely translate into a hung parliament.

“They’ve made steps in that significantly more people are thinking of them as their second choice than they were last week,” Lyle says. “But they have to go to the next step and knock people from their current voting attachment.”

Here’s the rub. With less than two weeks to go until Election Day, most Canadians have already made up their minds, according to Innovative, with 54 per cent saying they’ve heard all they need to decide who’s getting their vote.

The poll results are based on the results of two online surveys of a representative sample of 5,229 Canadians, but because of the methodology, a margin of error does not apply.

Innovative Research poll: Who wants a minority government? Lots of Liberals. .
Support for a minority government—now the likely outcome—is at 40 per cent, with some voters in every party hoping there's no majorityWhen presented with a hypothetical scenario in which the Liberals win the most seats on Election Day, nearly one-quarter of Liberal partisans (22 per cent) said they’d rather Team Trudeau win a minority of the seats in Parliament, according to a poll done by Innovative Research Group for Maclean’s. Another six per cent of Liberal supporters said they didn’t know if they preferred a Liberal majority of minority. Among Conservative backers, 12 per cent would prefer their party to win a minority, with four per cent unsure.
