Federal Liberals poised to make great election gains in Ontario, poll finds

The Globe and Mail

One of the most ambitious public polls taken in Ontario in the runup to the federal election suggests Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are ascendant in the country’s largest province – but not yet enough to give them a good shot at winning government.

Surveying 3,000 Ontarians through a combination of land lines and cellphones, from late February through the end of March, Innovative Research Group found the Liberals with 39-per-cent support among decided voters. The Conservatives were at 37 per cent, the NDP at 17 per cent and the Green Party at 7 per cent.
