The CBC Pollcast, hosted by CBC poll analyst and founder Éric Grenier, explores the world of electoral politics, political polls and the trends they reveal.

Voters in Saskatchewan will head to the ballot boxes on Monday in an election whose outcome is in little doubt. But though the polls suggest the Saskatchewan Party is well-positioned to romp to another majority victory, these voters will have the final say. 

What will they decide?
