Poll B.C. Liberals lead NDP

This is from the NationalPost.

This poll does not bode well for the NDP although it depends quite a bit upon the distribution of votes. There is less than a week left so the NDP has its work cut out for it.

B. C. Liberals Leading NDP, Poll Finds

QUESNEL, B. C. -- With less than a week to go in the provincial election campaign, the Liberal party, led by Premier Gordon Campbell, has a nine percentage point lead over the New Democratic Party, a new poll has found.
A Mustel Group poll found the Liberals have the support of 47% of decided voters, the NDP has 38% and the Green party has 12%. Despite the results, NDP leader Carole James said she feels optimistic as her party has gained ground since the beginning of the campaign.
"The message it sends is it's going to be a competitive election, and we're going to go right to the wire," she said yesterday. "We're going to keep working hard and every vote will count in this election." The campaign started off slowly, but voters are now energized, she said.
"It really will be one of those elections where every vote will make a difference, where every vote really will count," Ms. James added. The poll surveyed 852 eligible B. C. voters between April 29 and May 6. It is considered accurate to within plus or minus 3.4 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
