News1130/PlaceSpeak Poll: Several municipalities are now running close to a 50/50 split – New West, North Van and West Van
Week 3 results of the News1130/PlaceSpeak poll have remained consistent with trends established in week 2; however, some new patterns have also emerged. For example, several municipalities are now running close to a 50/50 split including New Westminster, District of North Vancouver, and West Vancouver.
The “No” side is still ahead with 60% of total votes and the “Yes” side is following behind with 40% of the total response. This pattern is due in part to a lower overall response rate experienced last week. We are encouraging all Metro Vancouver residents to take part in the survey to help us all have a better understanding of each region’s sentiments toward the debate; especially those regions that are under-represented in the poll.
Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby and Maple Ridge continue to be under-represented by at least 25-50%. In contrast, Vancouver, New Westminster, Delta and Port Moody are all over-represented.
Both Vancouver and Pitt Meadows continue to be the only regions supporting a dominant “Yes” vote. On the flip side, Surrey, Coquitlam and Langley are leading the “No” side with the largest majority of “No” voters.
Next week we will provide a week-over-week comparison of all results to date providing further analysis on what changes are emerging.
