Calandra trails in Markham-Stouffville

Liberal’s Philpott with more than half the vote

TORONTO October 4th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 439 voters in the new GTA federal riding of Markham-Stouffville, more than half (51%) will vote for the Liberal candidate, Jane Philpott, while just 4-in-10 will vote for the Conservative quasi-incumbent, Paul Calandra (40%). Very few will vote NDP (6%) or Green (2%).

“Part of this riding was held by the Liberals until 2008, when Paul Calandra, won his seat in Oak Ridges-Markham. His attempt to transfer that success to this newly formed riding seems doomed to failure at this point, though,” said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
