Nova Scotia Election Poll – August 5, 2021

The Liberals are still ahead in Nova Scotia.

Leger’s latest poll shows that among decided voters, the Liberals are still ahead in Nova Scotia with 42% of the vote, followed by the Conservatives with 32%, the NDP with 20%, and the Greens with 5%. 1% would vote for another party.

“Satisfaction with the government remains high, at 54%, and Iain Rankin is perceived as the best premier by 30% of the population. Anything can happen in a pandemic context, and the game is far from over. In fact, 36% of decided voters may still change their minds,” said Jean-Marc Léger, Founding President and CEO, Leger.

The survey was conducted among 300 Nova Scotia voters from July 31 to August 2, 2021.

Leger was the most accurate polling firm for the 2019 Canadian federal election and the 2020 New Brunswick and British Columbia provincial elections.


This web survey was conducted from July 30, 2021 to August 2, 2021 among 300 Nova Scotians 18 years of age or older who are eligible to vote, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

For comparison, a probability sample of 300 respondents would have a margin of error of ±5.7%, 19 times out of 20.
