Liberal Monsef with slim lead in P'boro-Kawartha

Skinner close behind

TORONTO September 25th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 1294 voters in the slightly redistricted federal riding of Peterborough-Kawartha, close to 4-in-10 will support the Liberal candidate, Maryam Monsef (37%), while just fewer, about a third, will vote for Michael Skinner (34%), the Conservative standard bearer. Dave Nickle, the NDP candidate, attracts one quarter of the vote (24%), and few will vote Green (Doug Mason - 4%).

With the downfall of Dean Del Mastro, this riding has shed its Conservative Party identity, and is free once again to be the bellwether riding it has always been. If it's close here, it's close across the country," said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
