ProjectDemocracy.ca releases new riding specific polling

Project Democracy helps progressive Canadian voters identify who the best candidate in their riding is to defeat the Harper Conservative. In order to do this responsibly, Project Democracy is careful to include as much riding level information as possible where national polling data is not enough to paint a clear picture. For this reason, projectdemocracy.ca recently commissioned public opinion polling in eight hard-to-call ridings.

Data from the polling, undertaken by Oraclepoll Research on April 27 and 28, 2011, for the Ridings of Nunavut, Charlesbourg, Lévis-Bellechasse, Pontiac, Portneuf - Jacques Cartier, Desnethé - Missinippi - Churchill River, Saskatoon - Humboldt andEsquimalt - Juan de Fuca is displayed below. The margin of error for each 400-person survey is +/- 4.9%, 19/20 times.

About Project Democracy

Project Democracy is an information resource for progressive Canadian voters looking to topple the Harper Conservatives by harnessing the votes of the majority of Canadians. In Canada we don’t have an electoral system that directly reflects the will of Canadians. With our 'first-past-the-post' electoral system, vote splitting could mean Canadians end up with a majority Harper Government with as little as 35 percent of the popular vote.  This is not the outcome most Canadians want, and avoiding it requires voter knowledge and cooperation. Project Democracy provides that knowledge through careful use of available polling data and analysis of local “on the ground” riding information. If progressive Canadians vote smart, the majority of Canadians will get a government that better reflects their values.
