Poll Shows Economy Main Issue in Campaign

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 @ 5:59 AM

For the first week  of the Provincial election campaign 250News  asked “What do you see as the main issue in this election?”

Three of the 8  areas  presented,   resulted in  the Economy  being the top issue.  31% (419)  checked off this  issue as their  main concern.

Second most  popular,  was  Fiscal responsibility,  as  301 votes (22%) were cast on that  item.

Health Care rounded out the top three with 20% (263votes)  saying it is their  main issue.

Although  there has been much talk about boosting the minimum wage,   only 2% (32 votes)  were cast  by those who feel that is a major issue, and  child care  only garnered 21 votes (2%)

Concerns about the environment  netted 117 votes   or 9%,   putting it ahead of affordable housing/ poverty reduction which  closed  off   with 100 votes  or 7%.

The category “other”   ended up with  the same percentage as  affordable housing/poverty reduction  at 7%   although it  finished with 95 votes.

In all, 1348  votes were cast in this non-scientific poll.
