We elected them as our provincial economy was ramping up back in 2007. The oil and gas industries were booming, potash was selling and the money was rolling in.
They spent it and we all benefited. Our Saskatchewan Party government invested in us. They invested in new facilities including schools and hospitals. They improved our highways and made life better for all of us.
It's because of that I find the dwindling support for the Saskatchewan Party so surprising.
The numbers come from a new poll from Insightrix which shows the Saskatchewan Party's approval rating at 44%, the lowest since they started tracking it 8 years ago.
So, if an election were to be held now, 44% of decided voters would support the Saskatchewan Party, 40% would vote for the NDP, 7% for the PC Party, 5% for the Liberals and 4% for the Green Party. What might be most conspicuous? 25% of those polled are undecided.
Yes, the honeymoon is over. Time will tell if we decide to work on this marriage or file for divorce and, with 4 out of 10 people finding the NDP attractive, the Saskatchewan Party, obviously, has some work to do.
