Liberals and PCs Remained Tied in Nova Scotia


MQO Research spoke with 300 residents of Nova Scotia to gauge the political temperature in the province for the Winter edition of our quarterly political poll: Atlantic Matters.

Provincial Politics

According to the latest polling numbers, the Liberals and PCs remained statistically tied in NS. Among decided and leaning voters:

  • PC Party support edged down 3% percentage points to 32%.
  • Current Liberal support held relatively steady at 34%.
  • NDP support was relatively steady at 22%.
  • Support for the Green Party was relatively unchanged at 9%.

“The governing Liberals remain tied with the official opposition,” said Carolyn O’Keefe, President at MQO. “There has been little movement in party preference since our last poll.”

The Atlantic Matters poll was conducted by telephone from February 27th to March 3rd, 2020 and included 300 randomly selected eligible voters from across the province. The margin of error for the total sample is ± 5.6 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
