Thirty days. Thirty podcasts! Dave Trafford, Executive Producer of iContact Productions and John Wright, CEO - Insight of Dart Insight and Communications take a daily swipe at the Ontario campaign until election day on June 7th. They chase the race and follow the leaders. What should you expect? What didn't you expect in this campaign?
DAY 15: Another day another poll telling us the NDP and the PCs are neck and neck across the province. As John Wright points out, the final outcome will depend on where the 'vote is thick' for either party. At this point, there still appears to be a good deal of movement.
The latest Pollara poll conducted for Macleans reflects the trends we saw in the Ipsos poll earlier in the week. But the positive/negative ratings are changing. Andrea Horwath's are up. Doug Ford's are down.
That ambivalence is reflected anecdotally among voters who say "I'd prefer to vote PC but I'm unsure about Ford. I like Horwath but I'm unsure about the NDP. I may just stay home on election day."
So, this race is going to come down to who is the most likeable leader and which party can get their vote out.
