– After an acrimonious spring session in the Manitoba Legislature, a new survey
by Probe Research Inc. for the Winnipeg
Free Press shows the province’s governing New Democratic Party is growing
increasingly unpopular with Manitobans as support for the opposition
Progressive Conservatives continues to increase.
Province-wide, 46 percent of Manitobans report
that they would cast a ballot for a Progressive Conservative candidate in a
hypothetical provincial election, up four points from 42 percent in April.
Fewer than three-in-ten decided voters, on the other hand, would now back a NDP
candidate (28%, -7% versus April). This is the lowest level of support for the
NDP that has ever been recorded in a Probe Research-Winnipeg Free Press Manitoba Omnibus survey, which has been
conducted quarterly since 1997.
