A new poll has painted quite a grim picture in 2018 for Liberals. 58% of Ontarians have insisted that she resign. Out of the respondents in Toronto alone, 67% want her gone, and 62% of the GTA have already had enough of her.
With the next election just 18 months away, Wynne and the Liberals continue plummeting to new depths as they trail the PCs and NDP.
Approvals for Wynne continue driving down numbers with her approval at 15% while 67% disapprove of her and 30% strongly disapprove.
However, the latest scandal might be the last straw for the public. The OPP has laid bribery charges alleging that a couple of Liberal insiders which includes the ex-deputy chief of staff for Wynne have offered jobs or appointments to former Liberal candidates in Sudbury so that they step aside. Wynne maintained that there wasn’t any bribe and she was in no way involved.
These allegations haven’t been tested yet in court.
The bad news for the Liberals is 59% of voters are following recent charges against the Liberal Party staff including 42% who are either closely or very against it.
As opposed, NDP’s Andrea Horwath is leading the approval rating with 59%, including 30% disapproval and 17% strongly disapproving of her. Patrick Brown, the Ontario PC continued making gains in approval with 51%, including a strong approval of 23%> His disapproval is the same as Horwath at 30%, with only 9% strongly disapproving of him.
The lead in Eastern Canada over twenty points on the Liberals could end up resulting in a closer-than-expected result in Ottawa-Vanier where the Brown-led PC’s are being led by Andre Marin, their star candidate. The poll included 2,524 respondents and conducted on the 2nd of November. It has a margin of error of just 1.95% which is nineteen times out of every twenty.
