Toronto, May 12th
– In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among
1103 Ontario voters, the majority (56%) approve of the government’s plan to
offer free prescription drugs to those under the age of 25. A third (32%)
disapprove of the plan, with just over 1-in-10 (12%) saying they do not know.
Respondents most likely
to say they approve of the plan include those aged 34 and younger (71%),
females (60%), earning $60,000-$80,000 (63%), living in Toronto (66%), with a
post-graduate degree (69%), and supporting the Liberals (72%) or NDP (72%).
likely to disapprove of the plan include those aged 55-64 (40%) or 65+ (42%),
earning $40,000-$60,000 (41%), living in the GTA (33%), Southwestern Ontario (33%),
or Northeastern Ontario (34%), the least educated (35%), with some
college/university (36%), or a college/university degree (33%), and supporting
the PCs (54%).
“A broad spectrum of
support exists for the Liberals’ pharmacare plan, from Liberals and NDP
supporters, and geographically across the province. A massive majority of those
under 35 support the plan, which is a considerable chunk of potential voters,” said
Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
