Bowman (38 per cent) is just two percentage points ahead of the former NDP MP and MLA (36 per cent) among decided voters, according to results released this morning.

Rounding out the mayoral candidate field is Robert-Falcon Ouellette (14 per cent), Gord Steeves (9 per cent), Paula Havixbeck (2 per cent), David Sanders (1 per cent) and Michel Fillion (0 per cent).

Winnipeg voters will go to the polls on Wednesday.

The results suggest that not only has the gap between the two front-runners narrowed, it has been obliterated.

Earlier this month, a Free Press/CTV poll showed Wasylycia-Leis with an 18 point lead over Bowman, with less than three weeks of campaign time remaining and a prior Insightrix poll, conducted in late August, showed Bowman trailing Wasylycia-Leis by 14 per cent (38 to 24).

According to Insightrix pollsters, a total of 802 randomly selected Winnipeg residents were contacted by telephone between Oct. 7 and Oct. 17. The margin of error is equal to plus-minus 3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
