Politicians aren't supposed to pay attention to them. But a lot of their operatives have been asking Public Eye when the next public opinion poll is coming out. After all, the last time Ipsos-Reid Corp. and Mustel Research Group Ltd. released voter intention numbers was back in December. So here's the answer ladies and gentlemen: in an interview this morning, Ipsos-Reid public affairs vice-president Kyle Braid told us his company wouldn't be doing any voter intention research this month, although they are considering doing a survey on public support for electoral change. Meanwhile, over at Mustel, project manager Phil Giborski says his firm will be asking British Columbians who they plan on casting their ballot for in the next election, with the results expected in about ten days time.
