New poll suggests United Conservative Party would easily defeat Notley’s NDP
The United Conservative Party is riding high in the polls.
The United Conservative Party (UCP) is choosing their leader this weekend, but a poll is showing that regardless of who wins that race, a majority of Albertans would vote for the party if the election were held today.
The polling was done by students at Lethbridge College under the direction of professor Faron Ellis.
They interviewed 1,481 Albertans contacted on landline and cellular telephone between Sept. 30 and Oct. 5.
It found that province-wide, 55.8 per cent would vote for the UCP and 19.3 per cent for the NDP. The Liberals came third with 12.8 per cent of respondents, with 5.8 saying they’d vote for the Alberta Party.
