PCs and Liberals Neck and Neck in Northern New Brunswick

Two weeks before the provincial election in New Brunswick, the PC and Liberal parties are running neck and neck in northern New Brunswick.

Jobs and health care are the top two issues identified by likely voters in the region.  Likely voters who identified health care as their top issue were more likely to vote Liberal while 61% of likely voters who said their top issue was incompetent politicians would vote PC.

The random telephone survey of 518 likely voters in the federal electoral districts of Madawaska-Restigouche, Miramichi, Acadie-Bathurst, and Beausejour was conducted from September 8 to 12, 2010.
