WINNIPEG, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - In another Klrvu Research sponsored poll done on
October 8th, it turns out Gloria Kovach Conservative Candidate has reversed
the trendline seen in a poll done by the same company taken in August,
immediately before the by-election was supposed to happen.
Kovach is now at 29.94% support with the Liberal Frank Valeriote coming
in at 27.63% - which is a significant shift from previous support levels which
pegged Kovach trailing by roughly 10%.
"I would suggest that the by-election was able to take on a life of its
own in the dog days of summer and allowed the Liberals to run a strong local
campaign that seemingly kept their numbers at historic levels. As we have seen
in the past, a federal election can usurp the issues that may have been
influencing a by-election. I would suggest Gloria has benefited from running a
better second campaign, the national campaign simply occurring, and from the
growth of the Green party. The Green and NDP have risen considerably and taken
support directly from Valeriote," said Allan Bruinooge.
Party Liberal Conservative NDP Green Party
Percentage 27.63% 29.94% 21.42% 21.0%
"The NDP has pulled back in front of the Green party, perhaps due to a
strong campaign from party leader Jack Layton. Interestingly the Green's
strong performance from their leader has benefited their Guelph candidate,
however this vote may be quite soft and bleed back through strategic voting."
This poll was completed Oct 8th 2008, from unique households in the
Federal Riding of Guelph. 1,711 completed responses out of 13,307 possible
respondents, for a response level of 13% with a 95% confidence level and a
margin of error of 2.31%
