The Federal Ballot – September 8, 2021: A Postmedia – Leger Poll

September 8, 2021

From September 3-6, 2021, on behalf of Postmedia, Leger conducted an online survey among Canadians to explore their perspectives on the federal ballot and their voting intentions.


  • Which party they would vote for if a federal election were held today;
  • If they changed their mind and did not vote for their first choice, which party would be their second choice;
  • How likely they are to change their mind and vote for their second choice in the election;
  • Likelihood to watch the debates;
  • Whether their opinion of the federal party leaders has changed in the past week;
  • and more.


  • 3,002 residents of Canada aged 18 or older were surveyed online using Leger’s online panel, LEO, from September 3-6, 2021.
  • Using data from the 2016 Census, the results were weighted according to age, gender, and region in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
  • As a non-probability internet survey, a margin of error is technically not to be reported. If the data were collected through a random sample, the margin of error for a sample of n~3,000 would be ±1.8%, 19 times out of 20.
