More than half of decided or leaning voters plan to vote for Tories in June election: poll

A provincial budget that invests billions in child care, health care and new supports for seniors appears to have done little to boost the electoral fortunes of Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne, according to a new poll.

The Mainstreet Research poll of 1,969 adults has found that Doug Ford and the Tories have the support of 50.3 per cent of decided or leaning voters compared to 23.9 per cent for Wynne’s Liberals and 18.3 per cent for Andrea Horwath and the NDP. The Green Party had the support of 5.2 per cent of voters while another 2.4 per cent of voters said that they intend to cast a ballot for another party.
