Toronto, April 22 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1073 PEI voters, and amongst those decided and leaning, about a third (35.3%) say they would support the PCs, a third (34.3%) say they support the Green Party, a quarter (25.7%) say they will support the Liberals.

About 1 in 20 (4.6%) say they will support the NDP, and almost no one (0.1%) will support another party.

13 PC Seats, 10 Green, 3 Liberal

We project that the PCs will secure 13 seats, the Greens will secure 10, and the Liberals will secure 3.

Proportional voting not likely to succeed

Proportional representation has evenly split PEI, with about half (52.9%) saying that they will vote no on the referendum question, while a similar proportion (47.1%) say they will vote yes.


“Based on our projection, the government won't be settled  on election night. Until the by-election, called in response to the tragedy,  resolves, the government of PEI will be in a state of flux,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
