Toronto, May 31st

Progressive Conservatives (34%) sit even. A quarter (25%) support the NDP, and
(5%) say they support the Green Party.
(2%) say they
support another party.

females (38%), the least wealthy (55%), the least educated (44%), public
transit users (39%), and living in North York (41%).

the most wealthy (54%), with some college/university (35%), or a
college/university (35%) or post-graduate degree (32%), and living in Etobicoke

“Following months of
weak numbers for the Liberals, they’ve bounced back slightly in fortress
Toronto, likely their most important region. With a variety of big-ticket,
campaign-style announcements in the budget and its aftermath, it seems as
though for now, the Liberals are making inroads with the electorate,” said Dr.
