The P.E.I. Liberals may be the preferred party among Islanders, but they are also at their lowest level of support since February 2004, according to the latest Corporate Research Associates poll results.

Those results released today show 37 per cent of decided voters would choose the Liberals in an election, which was down from 45 per cent in August.

CRA said it was the lowest level for the party since February 2004.

The poll shows the PC Party has the support of 28 per cent of decided voters with the Green party at 25 per cent and the NDP at 11 per cent.

It also showed 27 per cent of Islanders were undecided while 10 per cent had no preference, didn’t plan to vote or refused to say.
