Majority of Ontarians Want a Change in Government in 2018 Election: Ipsos Poll

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberal party have an uphill battle against the Progressive Conservatives in next year’s provincial election, according to the results of a new Ipsos poll.

The poll, conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Global News, found that 24 per cent of Ontarians believe the current government has done a good job and should be elected again.

The remaining three quarters — 76 per cent — said Ontario is due for a shakeup at the legislature. The provincial election will be held on June 7, 2018.

Thirty-nine per cent of those polled said if the election were held today, they would vote for the PCs, while 32 per cent would support the Liberals and 22 per cent would support the New Democrats.

Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Global Public Affairs, said the Tories’ 12 point advantage over the Liberals in Toronto suburbs could help win them the election.

“Based on their lead in the 905, the Tories are definitely knocking on the door of a majority,” he said.

“Given that not only the 905 has a lot of seats, but seats have been added to that region since the last election campaign, so it’s become even more crucial in determining whose going to win the election.”
