Judy Wasylycia-Leis favoured in latest polling

  • Print

For the second time in three months, a poll of Winnipeggers’ thoughts about potential mayoral candidates has shone favourably upon Judy Wasylycia-Leis.

The former NDP MP and MLA, who finished second in Winnipeg’s 2010 mayoral race, enjoys the support of 42 per cent of city adults, according to a poll conducted by Insightrix Research on behalf of Global News and radio station CJOB.

A Free Press-commissioned poll conducted by Probe Research late in 2013 suggested Wasylycia-Leis enjoyed the support of 45 per cent of Winnipeg adults. In that poll, she was the top choice among a field of five candidates. Incumbent Mayor Sam Katz was not included in the Probe poll and River Heights-Fort Garry Coun. John Orlikow had not declared his potential interest in running when the poll was commissioned.

The new Insightrix poll places Wasylycia-Leis at the head of a field of seven candidates, with former St. Vital Coun. Gord Steeves in second place at 17 per cent. Katz stood third at 12 per cent, Charleswood-Tuxedo Coun. Paula Havixbeck was fourth at nine per cent and Orlikow, St. James-Brooklands Coun. Scott Fielding and lawyer Brian Bowman each enjoyed six per cent.

CJOB said the Insightrix poll involved a survey of 600 adults in late January. The station said the results have a 4.35-percentage-point margin of error and a 95 per cent accuracy.
