Support for Rachel Notley and her NDP party has dropped since this spring’s provincial election, according to a recently released poll from Mainstreet/Postmedia.
The poll found that if another election were held today, more voters would choose the Wildrose Party rather than the newly elected NDP.
Of the 3,007 Albertans polled on June 30th, 33% would vote Wildrose, 26% would vote NDP, and 20% would vote PC.
In only a couple of months since being elected, Premier Notley has acted quickly on a number of campaign promises.
The over-arching feeling in Alberta, however, is that of uncertainty. With energy prices only recently appearing to stabilize around the $60 mark, what the NDP plans to do with royalty rates, for example, remains unclear.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.79 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
