WINNIPEG — A new poll shows most Manitobans want Premier Greg Selinger to resign as the province’s leader.

The poll, conducted Monday night by Mainstreet Technologies on behalf of the Winnipeg Free Press, found 46 percent support for the Progressive Conservatives. The governing NDP sits at 30 percent and the Liberals at 24 percent, among decided voters.

Five prominent NDP cabinet ministers resigned Monday, stating they could no longer work with Selinger. The premier shuffled his cabinet that same afternoon.

The survey also found more than half of undecided voters feel Selinger should step down.

The poll surveyed 2,019 Manitobans by interactive voice response. The margin of error is +/- 2.18 percentage points 19 times of out 20.
