Public opinion polling has evolved rapidly in light of changes in telecommunications. Not only have data collection modes changed, but so has voter behaviour. During this presentation, Sébastien Dallaire will outline key learnings from recent electoral cycles, focusing mainly on the latest polling and voting results from the 2019 federal election.
