– For the first time since winning a historic fourth term in October 2011, Manitoba’s governing New Democratic Party is no longer the first-choice for Manitoba voters, a new Probe Research survey conducted for the Winnipeg Free Press
The Progressive Conservative Party, with new leader Brian Pallister, has taken a slight lead over Premier Greg Selinger’s NDP, with 43 percent of decided voters currently indicating that they would vote for a PC candidate in a hypothetical election (up from 38% in September). Support for the NDP, meanwhile, has dropped in the past three months (from 45% in September to 39% in this current sounding). Liberal support remains unchanged at 11 percent, while seven percent of those surveyed would cast a ballot for a party not represented in the Legislature.
