The Liberals have pulled ahead of the PC Party in the latest Corporate Research Associates Poll released today.
The Liberals have lagged behind the Tories in polling over the last six months, but they have since regained their lead as the preferred party of voters in the province.
When asked, 40 per cent of decided voters say they would vote Liberal if an election were held today. That’s up from 34 per cent in May of this year. The Tories have dropped from 40 per cent voter support in May to 33 per cent, while the New Democrats remain steady at 24 per cent.
Tory leader Paul Davis’s support has dropped over the last three months, but he remains the most popular leader with 29 per cent support over Premier Dwight Ball’s 23 per cent. The NDP’s Earl McCurdy has gained some support from 16 to 18 per cent.
The CRA poll of 409 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians was conducted from August 9 to September 2 with overall results for the province accurate to within plus or minus 4.9 percentage points in 95 out of 100 samples.
