A new poll released on Tuesday shows a strong majority of Canadians are ready to vote again, as the country waits to see if the Liberals can keep their majority of seats in Parliament.
The Angus Reid Institute released the survey of 2,000 Canadians conducted on behalf of the Angus Reid Group, which provides research and policy analysis for several Canadian political parties.
According to the poll, 63 per cent of respondents said they plan to vote in the next election, compared to 44 per cent who said they are planning to vote for a different party.
“The election has been an enormous disappointment for many Canadians.
It has been one of the most divisive in Canadian history, with some Canadians believing it is too little, too late and that the Liberals will be the next government.
The results of this survey suggest that Canadians are prepared to be more engaged and engaged in politics again,” Angus Reid president Angus Young said in a release.
“This is good news for voters who have been frustrated by this election and who want to see change happen, but who also have a sense of the urgency of the challenges ahead.”
The poll found that more than three-quarters of respondents had not yet made up their minds about voting, with most saying they have a “very positive” or “somewhat positive” view of the federal election.
The Angus Reid survey also found that most Canadians, 76 per cent, want a Liberal majority, while just 22 per cent want a NDP majority.
The poll was conducted by telephone between April 23 and 25, with 1,000 respondents from across Canada, including a sample of 466 Canadians who had voted before the poll.
Angus Reid also interviewed 2,002 people across Canada on April 26, with an additional 2,004 people surveyed between April 26 and 27.
The results are based on the survey’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
