The CBC Election Pollcast, hosted by CBC poll analyst and founder Éric Grenier, explores the world of political polls, their influence on the media and the trends they are showing.

Joining Éric on this week's podcast is Bill Curry from the Globe and Mail and Josh Wingrove from Bloomberg News, to talk about the economy, its role in the campaign and how the party leaders are approaching the issue that Canadians say is the most important.

Does the state of the economy play into the hands of one leader or another? Are leaders talking about the aspects of the economy that are affecting Canadians most? And where does the debate go from here?
