Alberta’s United Conservative Party would face a drubbing if an election was held now suggests a new poll.
The Mainstreet Research poll says 41 per cent of Albertans would vote for the NDP and only 26 per cent would cast a ballot for Premier Jason Kenney’s UCP. Nine per cent would back the Wildrose Independence Party.
The Alberta Party would get three per cent of the vote, the Liberals and Greens two per cent and two per cent would support other parties. Sixteen per cent were not sure who they would support.
Removing the undecided from the poll gives the NDP 48 per cent and UCP 31 per cent and 10 per cent for Wildrose.
Western Standard commissioned the poll, which was conducted Jan. 6-7 and included 1,003 adults. The poll is accurate to within +/- three per cent.
