Canada Election 2019 - New Brunswick

Are the New Brunswick federal election 2019 results set for a shift back to blue?

During the Stephen Harper era, New Brunswick elected more and more Conservative MPs. When they won a majority in 2011, the Conservatives held —- out of 10 seats in the province. They lost them all in 2015 as Justin Trudeau and the Liberals swept the Atlantic, with several close calls. As Liberal fortunes sink at a slow pace across the country, there is no province in Atlantic Canada more likely to return Conservatives to the House of Commons than New Brunswick.

What are some of the most likely Liberal seats to go, if in fact they lose any? Tobique-Mactaquac, New Brunswick Southwest, and Fundy-Royal were Conservative for a long time before the Liberal sweep. Those will be top targets, but there may in fact be others. Fredericton and Saint John-Rothesay will also be on the radar for Andrew Scheer’s party.

A year ago, this province elected a diverse minority government in which four parties are represented. With so many colours now on the map at the provincial level, the federal map will follow suit, but maybe only to the extent that there are both red and blue shown.

July 15, 2019 New Brunswick Predictions Update

NB predicted seat totals: Lib 5, CPC 5.

It is our assumption that most of the Conservatives’ rise in Atlantic Canada vote share has come here. Several seats, including Tobique-Mactaquac and Fundy-Royal, will be very high on federal CPC target lists. The Liberals are almost assured of losing multiple seats.
