As by-election test nears for UCP Premier Danielle Smith, new poll shows NDP in majority territory

“We are going to beat the NDP in rural Alberta, we are going to beat the NDP in Edmonton, and we are going to beat the NDP in Calgary,” shouts Alberta Premier Danielle Smith in a little video ad for voters in next Tuesday’s Brooks-Medicine Hat by-election that popped up on social media yesterday.

Cheerful music plays in the background.

But if an election were held today in Alberta, Rachel Notley’s NDP would win a majority, says a new survey by respected Calgary pollster Janet Brown, who has an enviable history of accurate election calls. A major factor, the Janet Brown Opinion Research poll commissioned by the CBC indicates, is that Albertans don’t like Premier Smith.
