Stay at home order

A new study was released and the results say Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives are leading in Northern Ontario. The poll did not break down the information by riding but had Northern Ontario in general.

Campaign Research asked respondents an a series of questions between January 28-30, 2021, related to the pandemic. For the most part, the questions they asked were broken down into regions such as Ottawa, Eastern Ontario, Northern Ontario, City of Toronto, Halton & Peel, etc.

The results of the study were quite interesting, especially when it comes to lockdowns and the demographics of who support the Progressive Conservative Party.

When it came to the handling of the pandemic, the government got a passing grade with 57% of respondents feeling that the government has been doing a good job compared to 39% saying the government doing was doing a bad job.

The topic of vaccines was also on the table, as the study showed a majority of people in Ontario – 65 percent – understand its the federal governments responsibility to acquire the vaccines.

In somewhat of a surprising result, results showed an overwhelming majority of Ontario residents support the “State of Emergency” and “Stay-at-home” orders that were issued mid January.

Finally, the question was asked: which party you would likely vote for if a provincial election were held tomorrow?

Out of those who responded to the study in Northern Ontario it was found that 31% would vote for the Progressive Conservatives, 28% would vote for NDP, 16% would vote Liberal and 12% were undecided. The remaining percentages would either vote for Greens, another party or refuse.
