ALBERTA POLL: United Conservatives Have Massive Lead Over NDP

A new poll shows the United Conservative Party dominating the political landscape, with the NDP in huge trouble.

The poll was administered by students at Lethbridge College, and shows the NDP on the verge of electoral annihilation. Here are the results:

  • United Conservative Party – 55.8%
  • NDP – 19.3%
  • Liberals – 12.8%
  • Alberta Party – 5.8%

One surprise in the poll is that in Edmonton – where the NDP usually leads – The UCP is in first place.

If such results were repeated in an election campaign, the NDP would be virtually wiped-out, with almost every seat in the province going to the United Conservatives.

All of this is before the UCP even has a leader.

The poll does show that the UCP has not fully consolidated the combined Wildrose & NDP vote, as noted by associate professor of political science at Mount Royal University Lori Williams:

“The total number is lower by about 8.3 percent, so what that means is that not all former PCs or Wildrose voters support the new united conservative party, and that’s without even knowing who the leader is.”

However, the UCP doesn’t need to consolidate the entire centre-right vote, just a solid majority of it, and the poll shows that the UCP is doing just that. Additionally, the incredibly low numbers for the NDP show that a clear majority of Albertans have no interest in seeing another NDP government take power.

Its high time that all provinces of Canada start taking their blinders of and see the reality of the Liberal Government and see that Justin Trudeau is not a man of principals and ethics of this country. Trudeau is all about SELF, popularity, and dominating the country. His plan is to control and deceive the people of Canada while appeasing the refugees and turning this country into political kayos. Taxing the middle class and the working poor while making the elites richer and dominating our youth. He is corrupt and evil and destructive and will will lose our liberty, free… Read more »

The NDP is just another Liberal Party. If that isn’t scary, I don’t know what is. I am surprised that the Liberals are even getting 12.3% of the vote! Who in their right mind would vote Liberal after all the destruction that they are doing to Canada??

I am very happy for Alberta . Victory cannot come soon enough.
I’ts been very disturbing to see what has been happening there in recent years .
Will take years to begin to repair the damage but I do Believe Alberta will prevail eventually.

Oh, gee whiz — have we regained our senses? I would appear so — let’s hope that spreads (if I can use the term) like wildfire.
