Public Polls Trends: First Half of 2019 Confirms Key Changes in Public Opinion Polls

The first half of 2019 has confirmed the trends from previous years. First, the number of polls in the public domain appears to be rising. Second, online is asserting its dominance as the primary means of collecting public opinion data.

2018 in the Polls | More than Ever

2018 saw a significant rise in the number of publicly released polls in Canada according to the Public Polls Project. Top polling issues were cannabis and trade.

Number of Questions in Average Public Release

On average, each public opinion release in Canada has 10 questions on it.

The Sponsors: Media, Polling Firms and Clients who Pay for Public Polls

An analysis of all publicly released polls in Canada that shows that just over a third of all releases were funded by research firms themselves.


What Canadians Think

The best way of knowing what Canadians think is simply to ask them. And, as the Public Polls Project, has found out, there is no shortage of public opinion polls out there to tell us what is on the public’s mind. takes the plethora of polls, both recent and historic, and considers thematically what it says about Canadians and the formation and change in public opinion.

Public opinion is a collective good and important resource that both is shaped by and shapes the political discourse in the country. Understanding what polling is, and is not telling us is an important contribution to our public space. is just one non-partisan effort in this direction.

From Our Founder

Research is my life

Public opinion. It is my life. It is my passion. Creating Jenkins Research was inevitable even years before I finally made it happen in 2009. Ten years later, lots of things have changed but my desire to learn new things has stayed constant. 

in 2017, I launched to share that passion.
