Atlantic Matters Poll – Liberals Maintain Double-Digit Lead Despite Drop in Support

(ST. JOHN’S, NL) – The Liberal Party retains a significant lead in Newfoundland and Labrador, with 47% support (down 9 percentage points since July).

Among decided and leaning voters, the Progressive Conservatives have 31% support, a 5% increase from last quarter. Support for the NDP trails the PCs at 18% (up marginally from 15% in July).

“Support for the Liberal Party is strong across all areas of the province except for Central where they trail the Progressive Conservatives by a double-digit margin. Despite a drop from the peak level of support in December of 2020, support remains on par with the 2021 election results.”, said Lianne Sarson, Vice-President, Research and Engagement with MQO.

The poll of 400 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians was in the field from November 19th and December 5th, 2021.
