Despite having new leaders on the landscape, little has changed in voter preference in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Both the NDP and PCs changed leaders in April, but an MQO poll contacted 600 people in this province in May and found that few voters have changed their preference.
Support for the Liberal Party is at 44 per cent, the PCs have lowered two points to 36 per cent, and the NDP sit at 16 per cent. The undecided or “do not plan to vote” group increased by five percentage points to 41.
Ratings for the leadership of Premier Dwight Ball were unchanged with a score of 4.8 on a scale of ten.
The poll was conducted by telephone from April 21 to May 13, 2018, including 600 randomly selected voters from across the province. The margin of error for the sample is ± 4.0 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
