Four-in-ten, or 42-percent of Saskatchewan residents say the economy remains the number-one issue facing the province today.
It’s just one of the findings of an Angus Reid poll released Monday morning.
While the government has faced voter wrath over spending cuts and an increase in the PST, according to the numbers released in Monday’s poll, Brad Wall is still seen as the most-competent to lead Saskatchewan through recent economic instability.
Residents still are very concerned about economy with Premier Wall still favoured on key issues.
However, Wall and the governing SaskParty do face credible opposition from the NDP on two issues – health care and education.
Wall’s Saskatchewan Party is up seven points provincially in the Angus Reid poll.
Regionally, the NDP lead in Saskatoon and Regina, but trail by a wide margin in the rest of the province.
This poll is different from a Postmedia/Mainstreet poll released in May showing the NDP had a nine point lead after a budget which was deemed very unpopular.
