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


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. 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. “The conservative momentum that we saw one week ago that had them up four points (34 per cent) on the Liberals (30 per cent) in our last poll seems to have kind of levelled off. And the Liberals have kind of regained a bit of their campaign footing,” Enns said. “The O’Toole campaign got caught up in the gun control debate and that wasn’t as cleanly handled,” he added. “I think that maybe ultimately took the momentum away from the Conservatives and gave a little bit of air and oxygen to the Liberals.”
