POLL: Doug Ford Leads Wynne & Horwath As Favorite Choice For Premier


The Ontario PCs also have a big lead over Liberals and NDP.

Another poll has emerged further discrediting the elites who said Doug Ford was unelectable.

A Leger survey shows 24% of Ontarians saying Ford is their top pick for Premier, with 15% picking Horwath and 13% picking Wynne.

17% say they would pick someone else, 13% say they like none of them, and 15% say they don’t know who they prefer.

As noted by the CP, “The results also indicate that if the June election was held today, 42 per cent of participants say they would vote for the Tories, 26 per cent say they would vote Liberal and 24 per cent say they would vote NDP.”

Those numbers would lead the PCs to a majority government, decisively sweeping the Liberals out of power.

The poll results – the second consecutive poll showing the PCs with a large lead under Ford’s leadership refute the arguments made by many elites who claimed that Doug Ford was ‘unelectable’ as Ontario PC leader.

It’s a message the elites try to spread about almost every populist leader, but it’s clear the people aren’t buying it.

Ford’s message of returning power to the people resonates widely, and it is a message that has put the Ontario PCs in a good position heading into the election.

  1. Great! I really like the expression Ford Nation. It is very meaningful. Power back to the people. Too much government control. Salaries for MPs are ridiculously high and pensions after 5 years of service are ridiculous.
    Several MPs end up with 2 or 3 pensions all from the government when the patriot pays 40 or 50 years to get a piddly $600 a month from CPP. This is a gross imbalance. And further north the reservations have received trillions from taxpayers and are worse off than the poorest citizen. Is there anyway some balance can be brought. Yes, with Ford Nation, common sense will prevail.

    1. I know what you mean about the CPP pension that us “Great Unwashed” receive after 40+ years of working our asses off! Can’t you feel the love?
      Yes, Ford Nation sounds Great. There is a feeling of HOPE in the air!

  2. He knows about all the corruption in Ontario, hopefully he knows how to correct it and we back him up, so we can get back on our feet, Ford nation will need a lot of time as it will be a huge mess. The Lieberal/NDP party and their media have already started to put him in a bad light, so has Quebec’s media. Everyday now there is so much concern about Mr. Brown, when we hardly heard a thing about him until they had really bad things to say, was he their plant also. I sure hope Doug Ford can be supported for the length of time he will need, as he said I am just a businessman donating my time to help the people of Ontario. Yeah Doug!!!

  3. I’m from Alberta where we have a corrupt NDP government. I just can’t believe that 24% of Ontarians would still vote Lieberal. What is wrong with their heads?

  4. I hope Doug can run a professional campaign right into the Premier’s Office.The media will be working full time to thwart his ambitions,as will public service sector Unions.

    So,Doug, make NO mention of public service cutbacks or anything negative about the civil service, be as bland and uncontroversial as possible while you win the election.

  5. Apparently he’s not as informed as he should be. A radio show was commenting that unless he can show enough competence people will vote Liberal again. Lord help Ont if Wynne or someone like her gets another run at Ont.

  6. I have never been a Conservative in my life and I was going to vote Harper last election but for some reason thought I would give Justin a chance. I never like Wynne but still voted for her because she was Liberal.

    My family always voted Liberal but since moving to Ontario 6 1/2 years ago I have educated myself. I keep up to news and politics and read everything.

    I never liked how Rob Ford was attacked by the media and the police. Sad! He had his demons but did not steal from the tax payers. I commend Doug for standing up for the people.

    Fords are not about themselves getting richer at the expense of the poor. They respect everyone and have compassion and empathy for the less fortunate. That is their biggest and brightest quality that I see about them. We need more people running this country like the Fords. They are for the people, poor, working class, middle class and wealthy. Everyone matters!!!

    Go Doug go!!!

  7. Finally a ray of sunshine in our fair land! I’m sure Doug Ford’s support is not only a reaction to Wynne’s maniacal spending and political beliefs, but also to WhackJob Justin’s.

    Sunny way my friends sunny ways indeed.

    1. Trudeau and Wynne made me swing right big time. I look at Tories now and I just think “hmm, pretty mild, I’m not so sure but I guess it’ll have to do …”
