Brad Wall had the upper hand in Wednesday’s leaders’ debate, according to a poll done by Mainstreet Research.
Following the debate, 1,006 people who watched were surveyed. Mainstreet Research found 56 per cent of people thought Sask. Party leader Brad Wall won the debate, while only 32 per cent of those polled gave the win to NDP leader Cam Broten.
Half of the people surveyed thought that the debate went unfavourably for Broten, who was participating in his first such debate as party leader. Just 33 per cent of people said the debate was favourable for the NDP leader.
Meanwhile, 58 per cent of people said the debate went well for Wall, with just 24 per cent saying it was unfavourable.
People surveyed Wednesday night were also asked who will win the election on April 4. Seventy per cent of people said the Sask. Party and 16 per cent gave it to the NDP. However, only 54 per cent of those polled said they intend on voting for the Sask. Party; 30 per cent said they intend on voting for the NDP.
The margin of error for the survey is reported as +/-3.09 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
