Same Leader, Similar Results (March 2015 Manitoba Voting Intentions)
Winnipeg - Political parties typically see a bump in their popular support after they go through a leadership campaign. But given that the recent NDP leadership race resulted in the same person staying on as premier and party leader, it may not be surprising to see that voter intentions in Manitoba have not shifted significantly in the latest Probe Research Inc. survey.
This Probe Research Inc. survey of 1,005 Manitobans conducted for the Winnipeg Free Press shows that following the NDP convention which confirmed Greg Selinger’s leadership, NDP support has inched up slightly to 29 percent among decided voters (up from 26% in December).
Province-wide, the NDP remain well behind the opposition Progressive Conservatives, who currently enjoy the support of 44 percent of decided voters (down slightly from 48% in December). One-in-five Manitobans, meanwhile, would cast a ballot for a Liberal candidate (20%, virtually unchanged from 19% in December). Seven percent of voters would cast ballots for the Green Party or other parties not represented in the Legislature (unchanged from December). Twelve percent of those surveyed were undecided.
