Ontario leaders debate tonight is big

We enter the Ontario leaders debate tonight with a new poll from Ekos released today showing the Liberals with a 4 point lead over the PC’s and the NDP in the mid-20’s. According to, combined with the findings of another poll release last night by Abacus (with their new polling methodology), that would lead to a bare Liberal majority.

Therefore, I would submit the pressure is on the opposition parties’ leaders to perform well. Hudak needs to do so to salvage what has been a fairly miserable campaign for him (losing a massive lead in less then 3 months to now possibly losing the election outright). Horwath on the other hand needs to somehow convince voters to give her enough seats to hold the balance of power.

Premier Mcguinty needs to remain calm and focused in what will likely be a sustained two pronged attack. As that’s his demeanour anyhow, I think it unlikely he’ll get ruffled feathers. He just needs to calmly counter anything that gets thrown at him, and he’ll be fine… plus highlight the issues that pollsters say resonate well with Ontario voters when they associate it with the Liberal government.
