This Think HQ poll is now the fourth poll in a row to show the Wildrosers moving far ahead of the PCs, with a 13-point lead over Premier Redford's Progressive Conservatives. Below are the changes in popular vote and seats from their last poll:
Wildrose: 43% (+10) - 61 seats (+31)Prog Cons: 30% (-6) - 20 seats (-28)New Dems: 12% (-1) - 6 seats (-1)Liberals: 11% (-2) - 0 seats (-2)Alberta: 3% (+1)
This poll also has some approval/disapproval ratings, which are as follows:
Alison Redford: 48% approve, 43% disapprove (45-45 in Calgary, 45-43 in Edmonton)Danielle Smith: 56% approve, 32% disapprove (57-30 in Calgary, 50-42 in Edmonton)Brian Mason: 29% approve, 46% disapprove (23-45 in Calgary, 42-41 in Edmonton)Raj Sherman: 30% approve, 48% disapprove (33-42 in Calgary, 37-47 in Edmonton)
Goes to show why neither Sherman nor Mason are catching fire in this campaign, despite the existence of the ever-hoped-for right-wing vote split. It's also highly amusing that Sherman has the highest disapproval rating of the leaders, despite being relatively low profile. Maybe it's just the whole "Liberal" thing.
