PC lead in Ontario
Toronto, October 26th – In a random
sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 946 Ontario voters,
more than four in ten (45%) say they support the PCs.
One quarter (24%) say they would support the
Liberals, with the NDP statistically tied at just over two in ten (22%). Just
under one in ten (7%) say they support the Green Party, and few (2%) say they
are supporting another party.
Respondents most likely to say they support the PCs
include those aged 45-54 (49%) or 55-64 (46%), males (56%), earning
$60,000-$80,000 (49%), $80,000-$100,000 (46%), or the most wealthy (49%), the
least educated (47%) or with a college/university degree (48%), and living in
Southwestern Ontario (53%).
Respondents most likely to say they support the
Liberals include females (28%), the least wealthy (31%), or earning
$40,000-$60,000 (29%) or $60,000-$80,000 (28%), with a post-graduate degree
(30%), and living in Eastern Ontario (29%) or Toronto (32%).
Respondents most likely to say that they support
the NDP include those aged 35-44 (29%) or 65+ (27%), earning $20,000-$40,000
(31%), with some college/university (25%) or a post-graduate degree (25%),
living in Toronto (23%), the 905 (24%), or the Northeast (26%).
PCs continue to hold a big lead across the province,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff,
President of Forum Research. “Despite the positive outcome for the Liberals in
Sudbury, it hasn’t yet changed any minds, and as the election creeps closer and
closer, it seems like the PCs are going to need a major stumble to give the
Liberals a chance at re-election.”
