The gap between mayoral candidates Sam Katz and Judy Wasylycia-Leis is a little closer, according to a Probe Research poll conducted earlier this month on behalf of CBC Manitoba.
The poll suggests Mayor Sam Katz is the choice of 54 per cent of decided voters, while Wasylycia-Leis is 11 points behind at 43 per cent. Avery Petrowski, the third registered candidate, sat at three per cent in the poll, which was conducted between June 8 and 22 from a random sample of 600 Winnipeg adults. The poll's margin of error was four per cent.
In a previous Probe poll conducted in March on behalf of the Winnipeg Free Press, Katz enjoyed 51 per cent of voters' support out of a field of five potential candidates. Wasylycia-Leis was 15 points behind with 36 per cent.
