A new Ipsos Reid poll shows the majority of Ontarians believe it’s time for new leadership, however, there is no real consensus about who that should be. The poll, conducted a week before last week’s byelections, shows 69 per cent of those surveyed believe it’s time for another provincial party to take over and run the province. If a provincial election were held right now, 34 per cent of Ontarians said they would vote Conservative, up three points since late last year. However, only 28 per cent back the idea of Tory leader Tim Hudak as premier. The poll shows support for Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals dropped three points, putting them in an exact tie with the unchanged NDP at 31 per cent.
