LEAN TO MAJORITY GOVERNMENT… BUT ONLY MY MAJORITY, NOT YOURS - September 30, 2010

ELECTION-WARY CANADIANS SHOWING GREATER RECEPTIVITY

[Ottawa – September 30, 2010] – Although Canadians have always said they are allergic to elections, that resistance is clearly down from this time last year, particularly among youth and those not supporting the Conservatives.

In terms of preferred election outcome, a large plurality of Canadians would prefer some form of majority government, a figure that has remained stable over the last year. Unfortunately, it does not look like they are going to get one any time soon. Canadians are divided over what type of majority government they want. There is a slight lean towards some form of Liberal government, though this option was selected by fewer than two in five respondents.

A trade-off of a Liberal-NDP coalition versus a Conservative government yields an even split (with a small, but statistically significant lean to coalition). This has remained relatively unchanged over the last year.
