The governing Liberals are continuing to recover from the political fallout of the provincial budget, new polling numbers show.
Corporate Research Associates released their quarterly poll on Wednesday. The numbers have the Liberals back in first place among decided voters, who were asked for which party they would vote if a provincial election were held today:
- 42% Liberal
- 34% Progressive Conservative
- 23% New Democratic Party
- 1% Green Party
The sample for that question was 531 and the margin of error is +/-4.2 percentage points 19 times out of 20. The poll was conducted Nov. 4-Dec. 1.
CRA’s last poll in August had the parties in a three-way tie, with the Liberals at 34 per cent, the Tories at 33 per cent and the NDP at 32 per cent.
The undecided rate increased among all respondents. Twenty-eight per cent were undecided, compared to 23 per cent in August. Satisfaction with government’s performance has also increased, with 33 per cent stating they are satisfied, compared to 17 per cent in August. That is based on a sample of 803 with a margin of error of +/-3.5 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
