WINNIPEG — An Angus Reid poll released today shows Hugh McFadyen’s Progressive Conservatives out in front of Premier Greg Selinger’s New Democrats.
The online poll was taken Feb. 16 to 23 among 800 randomly selected Manitoban adults who are Angus Reid Forum panelists. The margin of error — which measures sampling variability — is +/- 3.5%.
It found 44 per cent of decided voters say they would support the Progressive Conservative candidate in their constituency if a provincial election were held tomorrow. The governing NDP is second with 37 per cent followed by the Liberal Party with 13 per cent, and the Green Party with three per cent.
A spokesperson for the Progressive Conservative party said the poll’s results are just a snapshot in time.
Winnipeg’s Probe Research is currently in the field conducting its own survey of voting intentions.
The next provincial election is Oct. 4, 2011.
