Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown’s lead in Ontario’s political horse race continues to firm up amid stagnant approval ratings for Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, a new Forum Research poll shows.
The province-wide survey by Forum Research Inc. continues to paint a troubling picture for Wynne with the latest results indicating she maintains the confidence of just one fifth of voters in the province.
The survey, conducted on April 25, reveals that 39 per cent of Ontarians would vote for the Progressive Conservatives if an election were held today, while 34 per cent would vote Liberal.
The polling agency further found that of respondents who voted Liberal in 2014, 13 per would vote either PC or NDP this time around.
Forum president Lorne Bozinoff said this suggests the Liberals, as a centre party, “are bleeding at both ends” as left- and right-wing supporters “melt away equally” to endorse other parties at opposite ends of the political spectrum.
