With Poilievre expected to win the leadership, Liberals and Conservatives speculating about a snap general election this fall
If an election were to happen this fall, it would only benefit the Conservatives, not the Liberals, say pollsters Nik Nanos and Frank Graves.
Ottawa Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre is the prohibitive front-runner in the current Conservative leadership election. It's highly speculative, but some Conservative and Liberal insiders say that if he were to win the leadership contest, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau could call a snap election in the fall or at the earliest possible opportunity.
