CBC Mainstreet's spinbusters tackle last full week of the election
Is it already over?
In partnership with Corporate Research Associates, the Halifax Chronicle Herald has been publishing a rolling poll that tracks the daily popularity of political parties and their leaders. It's the first time a poll of this type has been published during a Nova Scotia election.
The poll puts the Nova Scotia Liberal Party in the lead, but it's still unclear if the political poll reflects or influences voters.
As the last full week of the election winds down, CBC's Mainstreet turned to its spinbusters to make sense of the numbers.
