Despite a massive marketing effort by the provincial Conservatives and the provincial government’s energy corporation, Nalcor, a new poll by NTV/Telelink shows a dramatic drop in support for the provincial Conservatives’ Muskrat Falls project.
In its most recent poll of eligible voters in Newfoundland and Labrador, NTV/Telelink found that 42% of respondents supported the project compared to 71% in an NTV/Telelink poll conducted in February.
Opposition to the project went from six percent in February to 22% in October.
Undecided went from 24% to 36%.
The margin of error for the poll is 4.2%.
The more people know about Muskrat Falls, the less they like it.
