Polls point to slim Tory advantage over Liberals in close Ontario race

Neither the Liberals nor the Progressive Conservatives have so far definitively put their stamp on the ongoing Ontario election campaign, as the two parties remain in a muddled close race in the polls.

The latest vote projection from ThreeHundredEight.com gives the Progressive Conservatives 36 per cent support, a drop of one point since last week. The Liberals have slipped two points to 34 per cent, while the New Democrats increased their support by one point to reach 23 per cent. An average of 5 per cent of Ontarians have said they would vote for the Green Party.
