OLP end times?

Holy shit la merde.

Roughly half of voters in Toronto — a traditional Liberal stronghold – would cast ballots for the Tories with less than a year to go before Ontarians head to the polls, according to a new public-opinion survey.

Among decided and leaning voters, 49 per cent said they would vote for the Progressive Conservatives if the next election – scheduled for June 7, 2018 – were held today, while 31 per cent would support the Grits. Fifteen per cent said they would opt for the New Democrats and 5 per cent would pick the Green Party.

That’s the upshot from a Mainstreet Research poll provided exclusively to QP Briefing Monday. Pollsters surveyed 2,000 Torontonians on July 9 and July 10 via landlines and cellphones, and the poll is considered accurate within 2.19 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

That’s The Board, for you: not merely content with wrecking the federal Liberal Party, they’ve now selflessly wrecked the provincial Liberal Party, too! Way to go, Wizard!

More than a decade in the wilderness. That’s what this means. 

Get ready.

    Imagine if Trump was Premier of Ontario. Poof.

    Well, we are still 10 months away from the election, but do you think this has now gone beyond just being about the unpopularity of Wynne and it is now the Liberals brand itself is taking the hit?

  3. Pedant says:

    They will have been in power 15 years as of 2018. Surely you didn’t expect it to continue forever?

    IMHO Wynne’s true jump-the-shark moment was her stabbing John Tory in the back over road tolls, a policy she had enthusiastically supported in the past and encouraged Tory to pursue. Didn’t save her a single vote in the 905 while simultaneously compelling her 416 base to look elsewhere after such a wretchedly cynical move. I would have thought much of that 416 base would drift to the NDP rather than to the Conservatives though.

    You can also bet that, secretly, Trudeau and Butts are hoping Wynne loses big. They surely know that Ontario alternation will boost the federal Liberals’ fortunes. Expect only half-hearted support from Ottawa in next year’s campaign.

      Red in Ottawa and Blue in Toronto…that’s another old standard that won’t necessarily stand in successive elections.

    What’s the big deal Liberal pundits will now have to eat crow.

  5. Mario says:

    Watch more incumbent Liberals leave for better opportunities as the election date nears.

    Hard to win ridings without some level of name recognition.

  6. P. Brenn says:

    party got stale…longtime in power…will see more bail out…if cons could get act together would be far worse
