Hollett and Freeland tied in University-Rosedale

Liberals gain as NDP falls back

TORONTO September 30th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 604 voters in the new Toronto federal riding of University-Rosedale, equal proportions, just fewer than 4-in-10, will vote for the Liberal quasi-incumbent, Chrystia Freeland (38%) or the NDP candidate, Jennifer Hollett (39%). This stands in comparison to one month ago, when Hollett had a 14 point lead (August 26, NDP - 46%, Liberals - 32%). The Conservative candidate, Karim Jivraj, takes one fifth of the vote (20%) and the Green Party candidate, Nick Wright, takes very few votes (3%).

“This riding looked like an easy move for the NDP a month ago when they were riding high in the polls, but now that they may be slipping across the country, we are seeing the effect locally as well,” said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
