Listen 2:58

It's shaping up to be the major ballot box question this election — who do you think would do the best job at managing the Canadian economy?

This week, we take a different spin on our Battleground series with CBC's polls analyst Éric Grenier, who joins us to talk about Battleground Watch — Economy.

Haven't got enough numbers? Éric Grenier joins The House over the summer for a deep dive into the polls and the data surrounding various battleground ridings across Canada.
