Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and his party have a strong lead over the opposition NDP, according to the latest public opinion poll from Mainstreet Research.

The poll shows Pallister’s Progressive Conservatives holding a 14-point lead over Wab Kinew and the NDP.

“The Pallister PCs hold a strong lead over the NDP despite losing two points since we last polled in August,” said Mainstreet Research president and CEO Quito Maggi.

“The big mover in our poll is Dougald Lamont and the Liberals, as they have climbed five points.”
