February 28, 2024

Satisfaction with the performance of the PEI provincial government led by Premier Dennis King has declined, according to the latest survey by Narrative Research. Currently, just under six in ten Islanders are satisfied with Premier King’s government (56%, down from 66% in November 2023). Just over one-third are dissatisfied (36%, compared with 30%).

The PCs remain well ahead of other parties in terms of voting intentions. If an election were held today, the PCs are the preferred choice for one-half of decided voters (51%, compared with 56% in November 2023). Support for the Green Party has risen since last quarter (28%, up from 18%). One in ten decided voters support each of the Liberal Party (12%, compared with 17%) and the NDP (9%, compared with 6%).  

PC leader Dennis King maintains a lead as choice for Premier, preferred by four in ten Islanders (38%, down from 49% in November 2023), albeit the lead has lessened slightly this quarter. Approximately one in six Islanders would prefer interim Green Party leader Karla Bernard as Premier (17%, up from 11%), while one in ten prefer Hal Perry, interim leader of the Liberal Party (12%, compared with 9%), and 7% support Michelle Neill of the NDP (compared with 10%).

These results are part of Narrative Research’s Atlantic Quarterly®, an independent telephone survey of Atlantic Canadians, and are drawn from a sample of 300 adult PEI residents, conducted from February 8-13, 2024, with overall results accurate to within ± 5.6 percentage points, 95 out of 100 times. The results are weighted by region, age and gender to reflect the overall PEI adult population.
