POLL: United Conservative Party Has Massive Lead Over NDP

Mainstreet Research Alberta poll finds the United Conservative Party has more than twice as much support as the NDP.

A new poll by Mainstreet Research shows the Alberta NDP in serious trouble.

If the results were replicated in a general election, the NDP would be almost wiped from the electoral map, and the United Conservative Party led by Jason Kenney would sweep the province – with the NDP only somewhat competitive in Edmonton.

Here are the key numbers:

UCP 56%, NDP 27%, Alberta Party 7%, Liberals 6.7%, Greens 3.1%.

The UCP leads in all parts of Alberta, with a 31 point lead in Calgary, a 6 point lead in Edmonton, and a 47 point lead in the rest of Alberta.

The Conservatives extend their domination to all age groups as well, leaving the NDP in a perilous situation.

These numbers show that the attempt by the NDP to change the political culture in Alberta has failed.

When they took office, the NDP could have pursued a more balanced course, but instead chose to go far to the left, including increasing taxes, increasing spending, and even imposing a carbon tax.

Meanwhile, their massive deficits led to a huge increase in the debt, and the Notley government has shown no interest in balancing the budget anytime soon.

Additionally, this poll shows that the NDP’s pathetic attempt to demonize Kenney and run a far-left identity politics-based campaign is failing miserably.

As a result, the natural conservative majority in Alberta has reunited in one party, and that party is poised for a massive win.

Voters of Alberta are fed-up with the NDP & Notley and her gang of taxing thieves, and their constant outrageous spending that has put Alberta into billion$ of debt and the NDP have put us on the road to financial collapse.!!!!
VOTE OUT ALL NDP in the 2019 election.


What the hell is wrong with Edmonton that they continue to support NDP? Jason needs to promise outplacement and relocation (to Venezuela) support for government workers who are sitting on their asses counting wait times in hospitals, calculating the growing debt for Joe Ceci and plotting ways to remove parents from the family equation or businsses from the urban and rural landscape. So sorry! I know that 50-60% of government workers are required and do good to excellent work on our behalf. I’m just frustrated by the mess the SpeNDP has made of AB with a great deal of help… Read more »

Four words: “government centre; government bias”. Ninety three percent of DC voted for Hillary. Not that it worked.


There’s more blue collar workers who are in unions in Edmonton. I had been watching the election with the Wild Rose Party. Calgary has more white collar workers. Joe Ceci is in over his head, seems he will do anything to appear popular; he keeps saying “we won’t touch the services Albertans hold dear”. Seems they see a large voter base in AHS workers as well. Hospital electrician I had doing work on my house, says he gets a $1000 a month company match for his pension.. there’s no excuse for this largesse, they should have been put in cheaper… Read more »


As much as some will disagree with, the ndpee was never elected as they & their few followers claim. The right vote was split resulting in their win. Looking at numbers of vote per riding shows it.

Obviously, Alberta’s Taxpayers Show As Much Interest In Notley Led NDP, As NDP Showed In Balancing Alberta’s Books. Notley Was Accidentally Voted In, Protest Vote Against Redford Went Terribly Wrong. Hence Alberta’s Ship Listed And Was Close To Capsizing, But The End Is Finally In Sight. Good Riddance Rachel! Unbelievably, Notley Won Worst Premier Of Alberta! Now For The Idiot Endangering Canadians In Ottawa.Premiers Are Wringing Their Hands In Anticipation. Kenney Leads Charge On CarbonTax, Provinces Ready To Join Kenney In Fight Against “C” Tax.
Admit Defeat CALL ELECTION Rachel! For Once Think What’s Best For Alberta

While polls are just a snapshot and need to be taken with a grain of salt, I think for Conservatives the recent mainstreet numbers overall not just in Alberta are not that bad (tomorrow is Manitoba and Nova Scotia). On the plus side, the UCP as mentioned have a massive lead in Alberta and are evenly slightly ahead in Edmonton which went massively NDP in 2015. Still there is 16 months left so a lot can change but a 29 point deficit for the NDP is pretty tough to overcome. Saskatchewan numbers also look good with the Saskatchewan Party once… Read more »


I wish we had a leader like this for Ontario, hooray for Alberta I am rooting for you. Make Alberta strong again, maybe you can attack the rest of Canada and make it strong and free again. Then we will not have to take all your hard earned profits like has been happening. Best of luck!
