NB Headed Toward Minority
Toronto, September 23rd– In a
random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1503 New
Brunswick voters, amongst those decided and leaning almost a third (29.4%) say
they will support the PCs, while a third (35.8%) say they will support the
One-sixth (16.4%) say they will support the People's Alliance of New
Brunswick, while a similar proportion (13.8%) say they will support the Green
Few (3.6%) say they will support the NDP or another party (0.9%).
PCs to take plurality of seats
Based on these
results, Forum projects a likely PC minority parliament. The PCs look poised to
secure 23 seats, the Liberals 22 seats, the Greens 2 seats, and the People's
Alliance 2 seats.
“The Liberals look to lead the popular vote by a considerable margin,
but their vote is not efficient," said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of
Forum Research. “So despite a considerable lead, they are very likely to lose
government on election day."
