Ontario PCs in Majority Territory

 In the afterglow of the unofficial beginning of summer the race for Queens Park is beginning to heat up. Today, Nanos released a poll showing that a majority of Ontarians would vote for the Ontario PC party if an election was held today. The Ontario PCs have the trust of over 41% with a Liberals  trailing at a stagnant 34% .

The underlying story of these numbers is a notable improvement of the provincial NDP they are perhaps basking in a bit of a orange glow after Jack Layton’s big win earlier this month. Moreover pocket book issues are still front and center for most Ontarians this is all good news for the Ontario PC Party, who have their last AGM before the elections scheduled for later this week .

 Furthermore, the Ontario Liberals are beginning to expose a soft underbelly of support in Toronto. On Monday  the conservative incursion into Toronto was complete with a 17 vote, recount win in the traditionally red riding of Etobicoke-Centre.  it seems that Toronto could be primed for the Ontario PC message this fall. In short, good news for conservatives all around, however the  Liberals have a lot of catching up to do.
