Federal Green Party Gaining Momentum on PEI

MQO Research spoke with 400 residents of Prince Edward Island to gauge the political temperature in the province for the October edition of our quarterly political poll: Atlantic Matters.

Federal Politics

According to the latest polling numbers, the rise in Green Party support at the provincial level has shown signs of extending to the Federal Green Party. Among decided and leaning voters:

  • Support for the Liberal Party dropped 5 percentage points to 44%.
  • Conservative support also dropped 5 percentage points to 30%.
  • NDP support trended up 3 percentage points to 11%.
  • Support for the Green Party jumped 6 percentage points to 14%.

The undecided / no vote group edged up 4 percentage points to 35%.

“The federal Liberals still hold a healthy lead over the Tories,” said Stephen Moore, Vice-President at MQO. “We are also seeing brand strength extend to the federal Green Party as they moved past the NDP into third place.”

Government Performance

Rating for the leadership of Prime Minster Justin Trudeau held relatively steady with a mean score of 5.2 (on a 10-point scale).

The Atlantic Matters poll was conducted by telephone from October 22nd to November 4th, 2018 and included 400 randomly selected eligible voters from across the province. The margin of error for the total sample is ± 4.0 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
