PEI PC Party Leading Following Election

MQO Research spoke with 400 residents of Prince Edward Island 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 PC Party is in front following the Spring election. Among decided and leaning voters:

  • Support for the PC Party jumped 11 percentage points to 40%;
  • Support for the Green Party slipped 6 percentage points to 34%;
  • Support for the Liberal Party edged down 3 percentage points to 23%.;
  • NDP support was relatively unchanged at 2%.

“Premier King is currently enjoying a honeymoon with voters,” said Stephen Moore, Vice President at MQO Research. “This level of support should provide him with a period of political stability as he navigates his way through a minority government.”

The Atlantic Matters poll was conducted by telephone from July 31st to August 6th, 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.
