TWO-THIRDS OF LIKELY VOTERS AGAINST RACHEL NOTLEY

http://thepostmillennial.com/two-thirds-likely-voters-rachel-notley/

It seems like the Conservative movement in Alberta has largely re-invigorated itself after a bruising defeat in its last elections at the hands of the NDP.

Coming off the campaign trail, Mp’s and staff members taking part in the merger between Alberta’s center-right parties, the PC’s and Wildrose have been met with a wave of promising news. As a new Mainstreet poll finds that 57% of likely voters would back the United Conservative Party. This would assure an almost complete wipeout of the NDP in Alberta.

UNITED STRUGGLE
The “Unite the Right” campaign saw both parties memberships voting overwhelmingly in support of merging, as tough economic conditions combined with disastrous wildfires, and potentially poor provincial management on the part of the NDP energized Albertans for a return to “pro-business policies”.

POLITICS OF DIVISION
The election placed in 2019 could end without a Conservative blowout- or well that is what Rachel Notley will be doing her best to assure. She will likely take on a more pro-business, and pro-pipeline attitude in an effort to attract some of the redder Tory voters which are currently dissatisfied with being associated with the more socially conservative Wildrose. While also hoping that the new UCP takes a more moderate stance, allowing for those dissatisfied on the far right to also potentially vote for a more right-wing option.

In fact, she has already begun to do so by adopting a new slogan “Pipelines are us” as she battles her NDP counterpart in British Columbia. Premier Horgan has taken an extremely hard-line position against the pipeline extension, vowing to do everything in his power to stop construction. While also continuously attacking the more socially conservative wings of the new UCP.

Therefore it seems as the provincial level Rachel Notely will see a divided province, and at the federal level a divided party.

What do you think is the outcome of this coming election? Will the UCP bring a crushing victory, or will Notley see her party remain in charge through a campaign of division?

Didn't 2/3 of voters vote against her last time.
1/3, 40% of the vote, for Rachel Notley
1/3, 30% of the vote, for Wildrose
1/3, 30% of the vote, for Progressive Conservative
1/50 for Other

So, no change in public opinion, plus one merger, should equal a new Government. That's one man deciding the government for Alberta.
