TORONTO—The New Democrats have the same 37 percent voter support as the Progressive Conservatives even though most people believe the Tories will win the Ontario election come June 7, a new poll suggests.
According to the Leger poll being released today, the struggling Liberals trail with 21 percent support.
While a sizable number of voters—more than one-third of those asked—have yet to make a final decision about where their 'X' will go come voting day, the survey indicates Andrea Horwath and her New Democrats are far and away the favoured second choice of voters.
The poll finds 63 percent of Liberals would vote NDP as second choice while 40 percent of Tories now led by Doug Ford said the same.
Leger executive vice-president Christian Bourque said that's a reflection of the antipathy respondents feel toward the Liberals, led by Kathleen Wynne.
“What I'm seeing here is that if there is still movement between now and election day, or even over the last weekend, it should favour the NDP at this point in the game,” he noted.
