It might have new boundaries, but a new poll released Friday shows the Conservatives continuing to garner the most support in west Regina.
A survey done by Mainstreet/Postmedia in the new riding of Regina-Lewvan. It shows 34 per cent of those surveyed putting their support behind Conservative candidate Trent Fraser. Next is NDP candidate Erin Weir at 28 per cent, followed by Liberal candidate Louis Brown at 17 per cent, and Green Party candidate Tamela Friesen at four per cent. The poll reported 17 per cent of those surveyed are still undecided.
Regina-Lewvan is one of the new urban-only ridings that take effect in this election. According to Elections Canada data, if the 2011 election was held using the same boundaries as will be used in this election, the NDP would have garnered the most votes.
The poll done by Mainstreet/Postmedia surveyed 639 residents in Regina-Lewvan on Sept. 21. The margin of error is reported as +/- 3.85 per cent.
