A new opinion poll has found that the Newfoundland and Labrador Tories hold a strong lead over their rivals while the Opposition Liberals are in last place among those surveyed.
Thirty-eight per cent of respondents backed the incumbent Progressive Conservatives, compared to 23 per cent for the NDP and nine per cent for the Liberals.
Thirty per cent were undecided.
The online poll was conducted by Environics Research Group and provided exclusively to The Canadian Press.
Unlike traditional telephone polling, in which respondents are randomly selected, the Environics survey was conducted online from Sept. 29 to Oct. 4 among 708 people.
The respondents were chosen from a larger pool of people who were recruited and compensated for participating.
The non-random nature of online polling makes it impossible to determine the statistical accuracy of how the poll reflects the opinions of the general population.
The provincial election is Tuesday.
