In collaboration with 680 CJOB News and Global News, Insightrix recently conducted a poll with Winnipeg residents and asked who they would vote for if a mayoral election were held that day. The poll found that 42% of decided voters would support Judy Wasylycia-Leis, 17% would support Gord Steeves, and 12% would support current mayor Sam Katz. Behind the top three are City Councillors Paula Havixbeck (9%), Scott Fielding (6%), and John Orlikow (6%), and Winnipeg lawyer Brian Bowman (6%). In the poll, 59% of respondents stated that they would vote for a mayor who is not currently on City Council. Respondents were asked about trust in city hall to manage the city effectively: in total, 67% of respondents expressed very low (27%) or somewhat low (40%) trust. Turning to the Mayor, 35% of respondents strongly disapprove of his performance and 27% somewhat disapprove. Winnipeg residents also provided their views on Mayor Katz’s leadership and 32% believe that he is taking Winnipeg on the right track, while 52% believe that he is guiding the city in the wrong direction.
