A recent poll gave the win in Thursday’s first federal election debate to Justin Trudeau; that, according to British Columbians.
The poll was conducted by Mainstreet Postmedia, who surveyed a random sample of more than 1,700 British Columbians following the debate.
It was almost too close to call: Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won with a margin of 26 per cent, narrowly more than Tom Mulcair’s NDP with 23.
The Green’s Elizabeth May was closely behind with 22 per cent, and just 18 per cent felt Prime Minister Stephen Harper won.
However, the poll suggests Mulcair holds a 34 per cent approval rating among British Columbians when it comes to who would make the better choice for Prime Minister.
He led with 34 per cent of the vote, while Trudeau received 27 per cent and 21 per cent for Stephen Harper.
37 per cent of the British Columbians sampled think Mulcair will take home the October 19 election.
