Voter Intentions Remain Unchanged in the Final Weekend Before the Manitoba Provincial Election

PRESS RELEASE: April 18th, 2016

Voter intentions remain unchanged in the final weekend before the Manitoba provincial election.

A new independent online poll conducted by Insightrix Research finds that one half of decided voters[1] (49%) intend to vote for the Progressive Conservatives in the Manitoba provincial election, unchanged from a similar telephone poll done for CJOB and Global Winnipeg one and a half weeks ago.

The provincial NDP (22%) and Liberals (19%) remain in a statistical tie among decided voters.  Fully 9% plan to vote for the Green Party while 1% say they will vote for a different party.  The number of undecided voters is at 14%, down from (30%) in the CJOB / Global Winnipeg poll.

Regionally, the race remains tighter in Winnipeg where the decided voter counts are 40% for the PCs, 27% for the NDP, and 22% for the Liberals.  In the remainder of the province, the PCs have a stronger lead (62% vs. 15% for the NDP and 14% for the Liberals).

Research Details

A total of 600 randomly selected Manitoba Watch™ panel members participated in the online research study from April 14th to 18th, 2016. Quotas were set by age, gender, and region to match the general population of the province and data are weighted.  Since the research is conducted online, it is considered to be a non-probability proportion sample and therefore, margins of error are not applicable.
