First Poll Released In Sask NDP Leadership Race

The Erin Weir campaign is releasing the results of a telephone poll of Saskatchewan NDP members conducted last week. The survey found a close race for the provincial leadership with dramatic differences in support between geographic areas.

Among the minority of New Democrats who were decided, Trent 
Wotherspoon had a modest overall lead based almost entirely on support in Regina. Erin Weir and Cam Broten were tied for second, with Broten’s support almost exclusively concentrated in Saskatoon.

“The sitting MLAs have a head start in their home cities, but this 
leadership race should not be a Regina-Saskatoon rivalry,” said Weir. “We need a leader with broader provincial appeal based on the policy ideas they represent.”

“Most party members remain undecided,” said Weir. “Last week’s poll suggests that I have a solid base upon which to build support across the province.”

The poll was conducted through automated phone calls to the NDP 
membership list between October 14 and 18.  The above results include only those who responded.

“Although it was not a scientific poll, the results seem consistent 
with other indicators,” said Weir. “Fundraising reports suggest a close race provincially and endorsements reflect the same geographic distribution of support as our poll.”
