Satisfaction with Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservative government has slipped slightly but still remains high.

According to the latest quarterly poll by Narrative Research, 60 per cent of Nova Scotians are satisfied with the overall performance of Tim Houston's team. That's down seven points from February.

If an election was held today, 42 per cent of decided voters indicate they'd vote for the PCs, down two points in three months.

Twenty-seven per cent would cast their ballot for the Liberals, which is just ahead of the NDP who would have 25 per cent of the decided vote.

Four per cent would vote Green and one per cent for the People's Party of Canada.

"Liberals are more preferred in Cape Breton compared with elsewhere in the province," Narrative Research said in a news release. 

"Preference for the PCs is elevated among older Nova Scotians, while, conversely, preference for the NDPs is elevated among younger Nova Scotians."

Tim Houston is also the preferred choice for premier of 34 per cent of respondents, 17 per cent would like to see the next head of the Liberals lead the province, while 16 per cent want the next leader of the NDP.

Green leader Anthony Edmonds is favoured by 5 per cent, while 2 per cent support the Atlantica Party's Jonathan Dean.

The results are based on a sample of 600 adult Nova Scotians through a telephone survey conducted from May 3 to May 22, with overall results accurate to within ±4.0 percentage points, 95 out of 100 times.
