Liberals lead in Etobicoke-Lakeshore

Bernard Trottier in second

TORONTO September 18th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll among 835 voters in the federal riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore, more than 4-in-10 will vote for the Liberal candidate, James Maloney (41%) while one third will support the Conservative incumbent, Bernard Trottier (33%). One fifth will vote NDP, for Phil Trotter (22%) and few will vote Green (4%). The Conservative vote is common to younger groups (35 to 44 - 41%) and mid income groups ($40K to $60K - 48%). The Liberal vote is older (45 to 54 - 50%), female (44%) and wealthier ($100K to $250K - 52%). The NDP vote is common to the youngest (37%).

“This has been a long-time Liberal riding, and it turned over to the Conservatives in 2011 when the Liberal leader, Michael Ignatieff ran here. It appears that, now a less vilified candidate is running, the riding is returning to its default red hue," said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
