Alberta Election - A Wildrose Majority is Possible

A poll conducted by Return on Insight, which surveyed 800 Albertans on the 13th and 14th April, shows if an election were held today, the Wildrose Party could form a majority government with 48 of 87 seats in the legislature.   The first column shows the result of the poll, while the second set of numbers shows a possible seat projection.

The Wildrose Party leads with 43 per cent followed by the PCs at 36 per cent, the Liberals at 11 per cent, the NDP at nine per cent and the Alberta Party at one per cent. The poll suggests that the real battleground will be in the cities.   In Calgary, the Tories have a slim four-point lead over Wildrose at 45 per cent support to 41 per cent.  In Edmonton, it's the Wildrose Party with a slight lead of 37 per cent to 31 per cent.

Results of the  poll are accurate to within plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
