The latest political poll released today is continued good news for the governing Liberal Party.
Corporate Research Associates asked eligible voters in the province who they would vote for if an election were held today. 44 per cent of decided voters said they would support the Liberals up from 40 per cent in August and a big jump from 34 per cent in May.
The PCs are holding steady at 33 per cent while the NDP has dropped since the last poll down to 19 per cent from 24 per cent. 29 per cent of those asked were either undecided or didn’t know. That number is also down from 35 per cent in the last polling period.
Support for Dwight Ball as leader is also up from 23 per cent in the last polling period to 31 per cent – tied with PC Leader Paul Davis. Support for Lorraine Michael remains about the same at 19 per cent compared to NDP leader Earle McCurdy at 18 per cent in August.
Satisfaction levels in the Liberal government are up slightly with 33 per cent either completely or mostly satisfied with government’s performance, up from 30 per cent in August. The level of dissatisfaction remains high, but has dropped slightly from 54 per cent to 53 per cent.
The poll of 800 adult Newfoundland and Labrador residents was conducted by phone from November 2nd to the 30th. Overall results for the province are accurate to within plus or minus 3.5 percentage points in 95 out of 100 samples.
