As the election gets closer, the NDP is shedding support and losing momentum.
The socialist surge is reversing.
That’s according to the numbers in a new EKOS poll, which shows the Ontario NDP on a downward trend.
Here are the key numbers:
PCs 38.6%, NDP 34.9%, Liberals 19.3%
The previous EKOS poll just a few days ago had showed the NDP at 38.4%, the PCs at 37.9%, and the Liberals at 19.1%.
Also, the NDP vote is apparently less efficient, according to EKOS:
“Making matters worse for the NDP, the regional distribution of the party’s vote does not appear to be very seat-efficient. In particular, the PCs have a huge advantage in rural and suburban areas, which will yield a major seat efficiency advantage come Election Day. More troubling for the NDP, however, is their overrepresentation with the more economically vulnerable groups and younger voters, both of which have historically lower voting rates.”
So, what we are seeing is that the Liberals are down to their solid core base of support, the PCs support has stabilized and is growing slightly, and voters are turning against the NDP as the election nears.
As more and more people consider the damaging impact of the NDP gaining power, it seems there’s buyers remorse setting in even before the purchase is made.
The NDP has faced repeated controversies over their radical candidates, and Andrea Horwath has refused to remove any candidates – no matter what terrible things they may have said. Her hypocritical double standard and willingness to defend horrible statements has disturbed many people, and it’s a big part of why the NDP is losing support.
Additionally, the huge mistake the NDP made in their ‘costing,’ and their radical ‘sanctuary province’ scheme is waking people up to the true radicalism of the socialists.
With the NDP disqualifying themselves in the eyes of millions, and the Wynne Liberals remaining unpopular, that leaves the Ontario PCs as the only party that can bring positive change. Still, a socialist win or Liberal recovery can’t be totally ruled out, so people need to get out and vote to stop that from happening.
