NDP and BC Liberal support gap widening

Post Date


Vancouver, British Columbia (October 10, 2012) – The gap in support between the B.C. NDP and B.C. Liberals has widened from 14 percentage points in March to 20 percentage points. Support for the B.C. NDP stands at 48% of decided voters (up within margin of error from 45% in March); B.C. Liberal support stands at 28%, down within margin of error from 31% in March.

The B.C. Conservatives have lost some support (shrinking from 14% in March to 9% currently), but apparently not to the benefit of the B.C. Liberals.

Support for the Green Party has grown, up from 8% in March to 13% currently.

Notably, the B.C. NDP is the preferred choice among men and women and all age groups.
