From March 18-20, 2022, Leger conducted an online survey of Albertans to explore their opinions on several provincial issues, including Jason Kenney’s leadership and:
- whether they feel the province is headed in the right or wrong direction
- their voting intentions (and their hypothetical voting intentions if Brian Jean was the leader of the UCP)
- the actions they plan to take given the loosening of COVID-19 restrictions
- and more
SOME OF THE KEY FINDINGS OF OUR SURVEY ON PROVINCIAL ISSUES IN ALBERTA INCLUDE…
- 50% of Albertans believe Alberta is heading in the wrong direction.
- 58% of Albertans think Jason Kenney should resign as premier and leader of the UCP.
- Decided voters are favouring the NDP (44%) over the UCP (35%).
- Hypothetically, if Brian Jean were the leader of the UCP and a provincial election was held today, 31% of Albertans would vote for the UCP and 31% would vote for the NDP.
- 36% of Albertans think the Government of Alberta lifted the province’s COVID-19 restrictions too soon, 27% think the restrictions were lifted at the right time and 24% think the restrictions were lifted too late.
- Two weekends ago, the police in Calgary forcibly used their bicycles to separate two groups of protesters on the Beltline. 32% of Albertans think the use of force by the police was reasonable or justified, 25% think it was not and 41% are not familiar with the incident.
- 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 March 18-20, 2022, using computer-assisted web interviewing (CAWI) technology.
- 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.
- Using data from the 2016 Census, results were weighted according to age, gender, and region in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
