Alberta election: Poll puts Wildrose slightly ahead

Marc PatroneRebel Commentator

A Think HQ poll puts Wildrose ahead of the pack at 31%, with the NDP at 26% and the PCs at 25%.

A significant segment of those polled were "undecided."

So what, if anything, does this poll mean?

Who do you think will win the Alberta election?

Tony, I only hope he makes that plainly clear. Hudak also said the same thing, but the main stream media metaphorically put their fingers in their collective ears and yelled I’m not listening!

What Jean needs to do is make it impossible to ignore or alter what he says. And he needs to state it in clear point form that he repeats over and over and over. No misunderstanding. No ability for the creepy MSM to rewording the message.

I think I may have to stand corrected on the last comment . I believe the ratio is 1 manager to 6 workers right now

Peter, Jean already has said that he won’t touch the front line workers. I don’t know if that he means their wages will stay as they are now or will be reduced. He is going after the management. For every 2 public sector workers there is a manager. He wants to cut that back to 1 manager to 12 workers ratio.

What surprises me here is the support for the NDP. It must come from public sector unions that voted PC last time and ended up being slapped in the face for it. The NDP is absolutely the wrong choice for Alberta, but fool me once….

Peter the Liberals in Alberta are the majority…how you think the PC party gets elected if not for all the Liberal votes.

If Mr. Jean is smart, he will learn from Tim Hudak’s errors and make it plainly clear to Albertans that most of the downsizing of the public sector will be through attrition.

Seeing the Liberals so far down at the bottom, one can see just how hated the Liberals are in Alberta.
Go Wildrose!

This is a tough call. I am repulsed by the arrogance of the Conservative machine, yet don’t really know what the Wildrose platform will be, except that from what Mr. Jean has said, he is not in favour of raising taxes of small to medial corporations—smart man since it is private businesses that create jobs and opportunities. Provincial expenditures have to be cut, including salaries and benefits, because that is where lie the excesses. But, respecting the size and power of the unions in the areas of healthcare and education, I doubt Mr. Jean will get the votes needed to lead the Legislature if he tells the voting public that he plans to demand that these overpaid public servants tighten their belts. If people who feel as I do vote to get rid of the conservatives, and in so doing split the vote vote between the Wildrose and NDP… This is a touch call.

Alberta PCs need to be kicked to the curb like the Federal Liberals were. In my humble opinion most Albertans are exhausted by “Progressive” idiocy and ridiculous financial waste. I am not sure when “Stupid” became synonymous with “Progressive” but for the past few years it has been a perfect replacement.

Milan. I am not sure about the “(minus the corruption)”. It may be that they are less corrupt that the Ontario Liberals, but there is definitely corruption there.

I have been voting for the Alberta PCs all my life but not last election and not this election. They need to be booted out and think on their misdoings for a few terms. Maybe work some of that entitlement attitude out their system while they are at it.

The MSM will do their best to discredit Wild Rose again, but I think the conservative Alberta public, having realized their mistake in the last election and having realized that Jim Prentice is just another tax-and-spend Red Tory, will elect a Wild Rose government this time.
commented 2015-04-09 13:31:36 -0400
Polls, poles, and Poles… this means nothing. Remember, last provincial election the polls said that the BC NDP would make up the next government — and they lost in a landslide. Didn’t the polls predict a minority government in Ontario? I’ll wait for voting day!
commented 2015-04-09 13:18:35 -0400
If I lived in Alberta, I would vote Wildrose for sure. The Alberta PCs are like the Ontario Liberals (minus the corruption).
Danielle Smith….I hope you are watching.

Much talk of thinking…let’s discuss corruption and ballet stuffing. Perhaps china or russia could monitor this for us.
commented 2015-04-09 13:04:26 -0400
Voting for the Wild Rose Party in the next provincial elections, I’d rather vote for lower taxes and cuts to public spending.
commented 2015-04-09 12:30:47 -0400
We’ll see where the Wildrose is at in the polls if there’s a Bozo Eruption like in the 2012 Election.
