Budget Gives No Boost To Liberals,
PCs Still In Commanding Lead
TORONTO, ONTARI – April 8, 2018 (LSN) The latest Ontario budget has not improved the governing Liberals’ fortunes in public support, the latest Mainstreet Research poll finds.
The poll finds that the PCs have now climbed to 50.3% support among decided and leaning voters. The Liberals led by Kathleen Wynne are at 23.9%. The NDP led by Andrea Horwath currently sit with 18.3% support, while Mike Schreiner and the Greens have 5.2%.
“Our poll shows that the budget has so far not moved the needle in favour of the Liberals,” said Quito Maggi, President and CEO of Mainstreet Research. “While it may give them a boost during the election when more voters are paying attention, there is no evidence that shows the budget has given the Wynne Liberals the shot in the arm that they badly need at this time.”
When asked whether the measures in the budget would make them more or less likely to vote Liberal in June, 53.1% said the budget made them less likely to vote Liberals, while 20.4% said that they are now more likely to vote Liberal. 14.2% said that the budget had no effect on their considerations to vote. 12.3% said they were undecided.
