NL Liberals Hold Lead Following Election


MQO Research spoke with 400 residents of Newfoundland and Labrador to gauge the political temperature in the province for the Summer edition of our quarterly political poll: Atlantic Matters.

Provincial Politics

According to the latest polling numbers, the Liberals maintained their lead over the PCs in July. Among decided and leaning voters:

  • Support for the Liberal Party was relatively unchanged from the last Atlantic Matters poll at 50%.
  • PC Party support also held relatively steady at 34%.
  • NDP support was relatively unchanged at 13%.
  • Support for the NL Alliance also exhibited little change at 1%.

“The Liberals continue to hold a lead over the Tories in the province,” said Stephen Moore, Vice President at MQO Research. “The Liberals and Tories remain tied in St. John’s and the Eastern region, but the Liberals have healthy leads in Central, Western, and Labrador.”

“The provincial Liberals have the biggest lead among males – they lead the Tories by 22 points.”

The Atlantic Matters poll was conducted by telephone from July 25th to July 31st, 2019 and included 400 randomly selected eligible voters from across the province. The margin of error for the total sample is ± 4.9 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
