  • 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.
  • 25% 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.
