Cracks Appear In The NDP's Floor (Sept. 2015 Manitoba Politics)
Winnipeg - Manitoba’s governing New Democratic Party continues to slip further behind in the latest Probe Research poll conducted for the Winnipeg Free Press, as the NDP are now statistically tied with the Liberals and sit a full 20 points behind the Official Opposition Progressive Conservatives.
In this current sounding of 1,000 Manitoba adults, 45 percent of decided voters indicated they would cast a ballot for the Brian Pallister-led Progressive Conservatives (-1% compared to our last survey conducted in June). Only one-quarter of decided voters currently support Greg Selinger’s NDP (25%, -4% since June), with roughly the same proportion of voters now indicating they would vote for the Rana Bokhari-led Manitoba Liberal Party (24%, up 5% since June). Five percent, meanwhile, would vote for the Green Party or other parties not represented in the Legislature (no change since June).
Eighteen percent of all respondents were unsure or refused to say which party they would vote for in a provincial election.
