A new Alberta poll from the Angus Reid Institute was published this morning and its results seem to converge towards the current narrative: the UCP leads by double digits, but the NDP has closed the gap significantly since the writ was drawn up in mid-March.
Angus Reid was on the field from April 5th to 8th and collected a sample of 807 Albertan voters. Here are the results:
The United Conservative Party receives 52% support from decided voters, a drop of 4 points since March. With such support, the UCP would win a comfortable majority at the LAA next Tuesday.
The NDP climbs to 39% support, an increase of 8 points since ARI was last on the field a month ago. From a 25 point deficit, the NDP has narrowed the gap to only 13 points and is polling closer and closer to its 2015 result of 41%.
This poll will be added to the 338 Alberta projection in time for the next update tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.
