VANCOUVER — The New Democrats appear to be on a bit of a roll in the latest polling numbers leading up to the May 9th election.

A poll released this morning by Global News from Mainstreet Research shows the NDP has built up a double-digit lead over the Liberals at the half way point of the campaign.

The polls says the NDP have 44 percent of decided and leaning voters, the Liberals have 34 percent.

The automated poll of 1650 British Columbians was done from April 20-22nd. It was right after the radio debate where Premier Clark touched NDP leader John Horgan on the arm and told him to calm down.

Horgan then told Clark not to touch him again.

The poll is considered accurate to within 2.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The poll shows the NDP made gains in the Greater Vancouver area.
