Daily Tracking: August 27, 2021




This survey was conducted using High Definition Interactive Voice Response (HD-IVR™) technology, which allows respondents to enter their preferences by punching the keypad on their phone, rather than telling them to an operator. In an effort to reduce the coverage bias of landline only RDD, we created a dual landline/cell phone RDD sampling frame for this research. As a result, we are able to reach those with a landline and cell phone, as well as cell phone only households and landline only households.

The field dates for this survey are August 23-26, 2021. In total, a random sample of 1,424 Canadians aged 18 and over responded to the survey. The margin of error associated with the total sample is +/- 2.6 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Please note that the margin of error increases when the results are sub-divided (i.e., error margins for sub-groups such as region, sex, age, education). All the data have been statistically weighted by age, gender, and region to ensure the sample’s composition reflects that of the actual population of Canada according to Census data.

EKOS follows the CRIC Public Opinion Research Standards and Disclosure Requirements.

    Well. Increase the sample sizes for Manitoba and Saskatchewan so you can post results! There are 2.3 million of us, and 28 seats!

    How do but Univerisity educated & poor both favor Liberals. Doesn’t make sense to me.

  • Someone smarter than you

    This kind of BS is why the west is always going on about leaving the country.

    Do your polling properly, and sample sizes aren’t an issue anymore. Besides, I thought you only needed to poll 1000 people in a single city to get the countries opinion in this nation. Whatever happened to that?

    Oh, it’s not convenient enough for you? Got it. This BS is why people don’t trust polls, despite them being sound mathematically… when done right.

    Wow, the People’s Party of Canada is already at 6%, making it more popular than both the Green Party and the Bloc! Of course a poll is just a poll but the trend-line is looking impressive for a party that only got 1.6% of the vote in 2019..
