It’s Forum. It’s early. It’s voodoo seat projection. But:
The poll found not only would the Liberals suffer a crushing defeat in the election, they would also lose official party status.
The poll suggests voters would elect the Progressive Conservatives with a huge majority at 43 per cent support, while the NDP would be the Official Opposition at 28 per cent. The Liberals would be in third place at 19 per cent support.
The Tories would snag 86 seats with the NDP at 29 seats. The Liberals would only manage to snag seven seats. Right now, there are 107 seats at Queen’s Park, but that will rise to 122 seats in the 2018 election. Parties need eight seats to maintain official party status in Ontario.
I’ve got the smartest political commenters around. So, a serious question: if you were Kathleen Wynne, what would you do to fix this?
Be specific. Be serious. Be strategic. The smartest suggestions will be posted below, soon.
