Doug Ford and the PC’s still have a solid lead but the Ontario NDP are now in second place and the governing Liberals have slipped to third place according to the latest Mainstreet Research poll that surveyed 2534 Ontarians on May 11th. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 1.95 % and is accurate 19 times out of 20. Quito Maggi, President and CEO of Mainstreet Research said “We’ve been noting a very significant surge in NDP support among leaning voters and second choices for the past few weeks. Today as we begin our province-wide polling for the election period, we see a very significant shift in voter intentions from our final pre-election poll of April 30th.” Among decided and leaning voters, the PCs still lead with 42.3% (-2.6% from previous poll), with Andrea Horwath and the NDP currently at 28.4% (+7.1%) and Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals slide down to 22.1% (-6.1%), while the Greens with Mike Schreiner are at 5.4% (+1.4%).
