A new leader has given the New Brunswick Liberal Party a boost in a new poll from Narrative Research.

If a provincial election were held today, 41 percent of respondents would vote Liberal and 30 percent would vote Progressive Conservative.

The last survey in May showed the Liberals and the Tories tied at 34 percent support each.

Meantime, the Green Party garnered 14 percent support, the NDP had 11 percent and the People’s Alliance had 5 percent.

As for preferred premier, new Liberal leader Susan Holt had slightly more support than PC leader Blaine Higgs (21 percent versus 19 percent).

Higgs has stronger support in southern New Brunswick and the Liberals have stronger support in northern New Brunswick.

The poll also found overall satisfaction with the provincial government has remained stable with more respondents being dissatisfied than satisfied.

Men, seniors and Anglophones were more likely to be satisfied.

Narrative Research says the telephone survey was drawn from a sample of 525 New Brunswick adults from August 4-24.
