The 2023 Alberta Election: Albertans’ Views on the Results

June 12, 2023

Leger recently surveyed Albertans about their perspectives on the 2023 Alberta election, including their satisfaction with the outcome, the top issues they feel the new government should focus on, and more.


  • Albertans who voted UCP in the most recent Alberta election were more likely than those who voted NDP to have been undecided at the start of the election, making up their minds on or just before election day.
  • 51% of Albertans are satisfied with the outcome of the recent Alberta election, while 40% are dissatisfied.
  • 65% of Albertans who voted in the election were motivated to make their choice as a vote in support of the party they chose, rather than a vote against the other party they didn’t choose.
  • The top two issues Albertans feel the new government should focus on are improving the delivery of health care and helping with the cost of living
  • Following the Alberta election, 47% of Albertans think Premier Smith should continue to push back strongly against the federal government and advocate for Albertans, while 40% feel she should be less combative and more collaborative.


  • A total of n=1,002 online surveys were conducted among Albertans aged 18 or older via Leger’s LEO panel.
  • The survey was conducted from June 2 to 5, 2023, using computer-assisted web interviewing (CAWI) technology.
  • Using data from the 2021 Census, the results were weighted according to age, gender, region and education in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
  • As a non-random internet survey, a margin of error is not reported. If the data were collected through a random sample, the margin of error for a sample size of n=1,002 would be ±3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
