Results of the survey

The RCMP has laid 31 counts of fraud, breach of trust and bribery against P.E.I. Senator Mike Duffy. What impact could these charges have on the outcome of the next federal election?

  • 21% No impact at all: What happens to Mike Duffy has no direct connection to Prime Minister Stephen Harper or the federal Conservatives.
  • 54% A significant impact: This shows a lack of judgment by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives, as Harper appointed Duffy to the Senate.
  • 23% Depends on the outcome: Whether or not it impacts the outcome of the next federal election will depend on the outcome of the upcoming court case.
