Razor-Thin Liberal Majority

Likely to hold a one seat majority in an election that tightened toward the end.

Toronto, May 29th – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 3086 Nova Scotia voters, for those decided and leaning, almost 4 in 10 (38%) will vote Liberal, more than a third will vote Progressive Conservative (35%), and just under a quarter will vote NDP (23%). (4%) say they will support the Nova Scotia Green Party.

Liberals 26, Conservatives 18, NDP 7

A strong showing for both the Progressive Conservatives and NDP, their campaigns managed to reduce the Liberal majority from 34 seats to 26.

The PC's increase their total from 10 to 18.          

The NDP increase their total from 5 to 7.

"The Liberal numbers grew progressively weaker throughout the campaign. If the campaign were a week longer it's very possible we may have seen a minority government,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
