The Progressive Conservatives are picking up new support across the province with the election only days away, according to a new poll.

The Mainstreet Research poll released Saturday morning predicts PC Leader Brian Pallister will come out of Tuesday’s election with a majority government.

    “What looked like a simple majority last week now looks like a super majority as the PCs gain almost 5 points to 54.5 per cent among decided and leaning voters,” said Quito Maggi, President of Mainstreet Research.

    Among decided and leaning voters, 55 per cent will vote Progressive Conservative, 26 per cent will vote NDP, 11 per cent Liberal and 9 per cent for the Green Party.

    The Green Party is expected to outperform the Liberals in some ridings but Maggi believes it’s unlikely they will get any seats even after an impressive debate performance from leader James Bedomme and Friday’s visit from federal Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.

    “But there is a chance for Beddome in his own riding,” Maggi said.

    If a Green Party candidate is elected on Tuesday it would be the first time the party had an MLA elected in the history of Manitoba.

    The random sample was made up of 1,809 Manitoba residents on April 14 with a margin of error +/- 2.3 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
