A cross-Canada look at voting patterns revealed some interesting trends in Saskatchewan politics.
The Angus Reid report indicates that Scott Moe's Saskatchewan Party would be in some trouble if an election were held tomorrow. Of the Saskatchewan voters surveyed, fewer than half said they would vote for the Saskatchewan Party. The last time the governing party was that unpopular was in 2017, when then Premier Brad Wall's NDP lost support after budget cuts.
The report goes on to say that Moe is now facing increased scrutiny over his handling of the pandemic, and that his personal approval is also on the downslide.
Two in five (39%) of people surveyed said they would vote for the provincial NDP, led by Ryan Meili, in the next election, according to the report.
Unlike most other provinces, Saskatchewan remains a two-horse race between the Saskatchewan Party and the NDP. The Liberals garnered just 2% of support in the survey, while the Green Party received just 1%.
Ten per cent of people said they would vote for an "other party."
Even with the apparent declining support, 48% per cent of respondents said they would vote for the Saskatchewan Party. Most of its support comes from men who live in rural areas, along with visible minorities.
