The gap between the PCs and the socialist NDP remains very narrow.
In the wake of Kathleen Wynne’s shocking decision to concede the election before any votes are even in, the latest Forum Poll – taken after Wynne’s announcement – shows Liberal support holding steady.
The key numbers are below:
PCs 38%, NDP 37%, Liberals 18%
Based on those numbers and the distribution of votes, Forum projects the PCs would win 69 seats, the NDP 49, and the Liberals 6.
The poll shows Kathleen Wynne with the worst approval rating, with 23% approving and 65% disapproving.
Ford has approval from 27% while 55% disapprove, while 41% approve of Horwath and 34% disapprove. Notably, the longer the campaign has gone on the more people have reported having a negative view of Horwath – in large part due to her ‘handling’ of radical extremist candidates.
The Forum Poll matches what most other polls are saying: The PCs and NDP are neck and neck, the Liberals are down to their hardcore base, and turnout on Election Day will decide whether Ontario will suffer under the socialists or get a new direction under the PCs.
