A new poll by Research Co has Rachel Notley’s NDP inching closer to the United Conservative Party, making the upcoming election tighter than originally anticipated.
According to the online survey results, 45% of decided voters in Alberta would cast a ballot for the UCP candidate in their riding. The governing NDP, however, are second at 40%.
The Alberta Party is a distant third at 6% and the Liberal Party is miles away at a mere 3%.
Interestingly, 22% of Albertans are
undecided on which party or candidate to support.
“The UCP is connecting well with male voters and Albertans aged 55 and over,” Mario Canseco, President of Research Co said. “The NDP is more popular in Edmonton and with women and voters aged 18-to-34.”
When Albertans were asked who would make the “best premier” for the province, Rachel Notley and Jason Kenney were TIED at 32%.
Notley also scored a higher approval rating than Kenney at 45% to Kenney’s 38%. What’s more is Kenney’s disapproval rating is 47% while Notley’s is at 46%.
