article imagePoll reveals Liberals would win again with Justin Trudeau

By Richard Mccallum     Sep 28, 2012 in Politics
Ottawa - A new poll conducted by the National Post reveals that if the Quebec MP was head of the Liberal Party and a federal election was held today, he would win with 39% of the vote.
The Forum Research Poll which is conducted by telephone also predicted that the Conservatives under current Prime Minister Stephen Harper would obtain Royal Opposition status with 32% of the vote, while the New Democratic Party under Thomas Mulcair would still be a powerful force in parliament with 20% of the vote .
Trudeau who is 40 and an ex school teacher is widely expected to announce his bid to run in the leadership for the Liberal Party next Tuesday.
He currently has over 150,000 Facebook followers, and has received a hearty endorsement from former Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chretien.
" You know, rather than run in a safe seat, he had to run in a difficult seat. He ran and defeated the Bloc, and he's the only one who's increased his majority."
"He's been elected twice so far. It's one more time than his father when he became the leader"
"Harper had been elected once when he became leader. He had no experience. He was younger than Trudeau."
"Joe Clark the same thing. Cameron in England the same thing."
The recent poll was conducted on September 26/12 by contacting 1707 respondents, and is considered accurate within 2 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
