Tories, Liberals nearly tied in latest Ontario polls

As the Ontario election campaign enters its second full week, the race between the Progressive Conservatives and Liberals remains close. But there is still little consensus among the polls on whether it is Tim Hudak or Kathleen Wynne who is in the most advantageous position.

The Tories continue to hold a narrow lead in voting intentions, according to a ThreeHundredEight.com analysis, with the projected support of 37 per cent of Ontarians. That is an insignificant one-point uptick from last week. The Liberals have picked up three points, to move to 36 per cent support. The New Democrats remain in third, down one point to 23 per cent, while the Greens have 4 per cent support.
