New Poll: Saskatchewan NDP in Statisital Tie with Right-Wing Sask Party

According to the latest poll from Environics:

Gains for the NDP this quarter put the party in a virtual tie with the recently elected Saskatchewan Party, while support for the Liberals holds steady.

Five months into its mandate, the Saskatchewan Party (SP) government is finding itself being challenged by its closest rival, the NDP. The SP now has 46 percent of decided voter support, essentially unchanged from December 2007 and on par with the party’s share of the popular vote in the November 2007 election.

The NDP has gained ground this quarter and now rivals the SP, within the margin of error for the survey. The NDP now has the support of 41 percent of decided voters, up eight points from December 2007 and on par with its share of the popular vote.

I thought that the Sask Party would be down, but I had no idea that the NDP would be up so much. Perhaps all this talk of a leadership race is premature!

(Yes, Yes, +/- 8% but that can work both ways, technically, the NDP could actually be ahead!)
