O’LEARY HOLDS COMMANDING LEAD IN CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP CONTEST 

BUT MORE THAN A THIRD OF RESPONDENTS WANT “SOMEONE ELSE”

TORONTO – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The
Forum Poll among 1,332 Canadian voters, Kevin O’Leary is the preferred
candidate to lead the Conservative Party (27%). Maxime Bernier
is in distant second, favoured by (11%), followed by with Lisa Raitt (7%) and
Michael Chong (6%). More than a third of Canadians (38%) believe “someone else”
would be a better choice to lead the Conservative Party than any of the eight
identified candidates. This is down from (53%) who desired someone else in
December. For Conservative Party members O’Leary leads all leadership candidates
(31%), and he has even more support with those who voted for the Conservatives
in 2015 (49%). “Kevin O’Leary’s entry into the Conservative leadership race
has propelled him to the front of the field, with more than double the support of his
nearest rival. Still, more than a third of interested voters don’t support any of the
current candidates,” said Forum Research President, Dr Lorne Bozinoff.
