If two recent polls are any indication, Albertans have as low an opinion about their electoral options and any other Canadians.
A poll by Think HQ found more than seven in 10 Alberta voters believe the Progressive Conservative party is arrogant and elitist.
Three in 10 PC supporters of the PC party agree with that assessment and many want change.
But the poll also found Albertans have little faith in any other party to be a viable alternative to the 44 year old PC dynasty.
When asked by reporters about the widespread perception his party is arrogant, the premier said, "These are challenging times, we have tough choices to make. Faced with the financial circumstances we have, and faced with the job losses we are seeing and more were announced today, we need a government that has a mandate."
Prentice' popularity has been slipping steadily since he took over as Premier and his budget calling for higher taxes appears to have hurt him.
A recent poll put his party at number three after the Wildrose and NDP.
