In Alberta politics there is no centre. New data analysis from online questionnaire Vote Compass found that the views of NDP supporters and those of United Conservative Party (UCP) supporters are not only far apart across the province, but they are even at opposite ends within each riding.
The results paint a picture of polarization.
“The differences are striking. In all ridings, there’s no one close to the centre or close to each other,” Vox Pop Labs research director Charles Breton said.
