The Liberal and NDP candidates each polled at 9%, with 16% undecided. 13% of respondents named Elizabeth May as their second choice, while only 6% gave Gary Lunn as their second choice.

“The polling results confirm the positive feeling we’re getting on the ground and motivates us to keep working hard until every Elizabeth May supporter casts their ballot next Monday, May 2nd,” said May’s Campaign Manager Jonathan Dickie. “We know that the only poll that really counts is the one on May 2nd.”

“It is still a neck-and-neck race,” said Dickie. “We know that we have the best candidate for Saanich-Gulf Islands and we need every supporter to know that every single vote counts.”

“I want to thank all the volunteers who are working so hard for Elizabeth May, knocking on doors, driving voters to polls, and answering phones. There is a real feeling that we have a chance to make history,” said Dickie.

“We are very proud of our positive election campaign. We’ve focused on the sharing of ideas and responsible debate of the issues. That’s what the voters of this riding want, that’s what we have worked to give them, and that’s why they’re supporting Elizabeth May,” said Dickie.

The poll was conducted April 18-19. 389 respondents in Saanich-Gulf Islands were asked how they intended to vote for local candidates. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9%, 19 times out of 20
