Satisfaction with Tim Houston’s government remains high: poll

By Meghan Groff

Nova Scotians remain highly satisfied with Tim Houston's government.

That's according to the latest quarterly poll from Narrative Research, which finds 61 per cent of Nova Scotians are satisfied with the performance of the Progressive Conservatives. That's a slight decrease of one point since the last survey in August.

When asked who they would vote for if an election were held today, 42 per cent of those who have made up their minds said the PCs, which is down one point.

Twenty seven per cent would cast their ballot for the Liberals — a loss of three points — and 25 per cent would pick the NDP — a gain of three.

“Support for the NDP is highest in HRM and lowest elsewhere in mainland Nova Scotia,” the polling company said.

Five per cent would vote Green.

Tim Houston is also the preferred choice for premier of 35 per cent of respondents.

Twenty per cent would like to see Claudia Chender of the NDP lead the province, while 17 per cent want the Liberal's Zach Churchill.

The Green's leader Anthony Edmonds is favoured by 5 per cent, while 1 per cent support the Atlantica Party's Jonathan Dean.

“While support for Houston is similar across the province, support for Chender is higher in HRM relative to the rest of mainland Nova Scotia,” Narrative Research stated.

The results are based on a sample of 605 adult Nova Scotians through a telephone survey conducted from November 2 to November 28, with overall results accurate to within ±4.0 percentage points, 95 out of 100 times.
