Canada is gearing up for a federal election on September 20, and the latest Canadian polls show that the race might be tighter than you think.

A recent survey from Leger conducted between August 13 and August 15 showed that if an election were to be held today, 35% of decided voters would vote for the Liberals, 30% would vote for the Conservative Party, and 20% would vote for the NDP.

This Survey Shows The Canadian Federal Election Results Could Be Close Leger

When asked which federal leader they thought would be the best prime minister, 27% of respondents said Justin Trudeau, 18% said Jagmeet Singh, and 15% said Erin O'Toole.

In the survey, half of respondents also said they thought it was time for another party to be in office, regardless of how satisfied they were or were not with Trudeau's government.

Despite it looking close in terms of which party could win, 47% of respondents said they thought the Liberal Party would stay in power.
