Manitoba NDP Reaches New Low In Voter Support
Winnipeg – 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.
