This riding is a typical conservative stronghold riding. There are several ridings in Alberta that the Conservative Party of Canada realistically expects to win, and this is one of them. However, the northern portion of the riding is less strongly conservative than the rest, with pockets of support for the NDP. Historically, this riding has been always right-leaning, with support beginning toward the old Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, shifting toward the right-populist Reform Party after the time of prime minister Brian Mulroney, and then held by the new Conservative Party of Canada since the unification of the Progressive Conservatives and Canadian Alliance in 2003.
