It seems like Ontarians are ready for a change in government, at least according to a new Ipsos Reid poll done for NewsTalk 1010, CTV and CP24.

69 percent of those who took part, believe it's time for another party to take over and run the province. That's 6 points higher than it was in November of last year.

If a general election were to be held tomorrow, Tim Hudak's Tories would receive 34 percent of the vote, while the Liberals sit at 31 percent of the total vote. That is down by 3 points and puts the Wynne Liberals in a tie with the NDP (also at 31 percent).

1 in 3 Ontarians think the Liberal party has done a good job under the direction of Kathleen Wynne and believe she should be re-elected. That is also down 6 points.

Even though the Tories received the most voter support, only 28 percent say that Tim Hudak would make the best Premier of Ontario. 32 percent say Andrea Horwath would be the best choice( up 3 points) and 31 percent believe Kathleen Wynne would be the best choice.

Numbers changed depending on where those surveyed were living in the GTA. In the 416 proper, the Liberals are the favourites with 43 percent support over the PC's 29 percent and the NDP at 26.

In the 905 and the rest of the GTA, the PC's lead with 48 percent, followed by the Liberals at 28 and the NDP at 20.

When examining which issues are the most important, Ontarians say the economy ranks first for them (24 percent) out of a list of 12 options. That is followed by healthcare/medicare, and government accountability rounding out the top 3.

The poll was conducted between February 4 and 7, among a sample of 828 Ontarians.
