The Ontario PCs continue to gain traction ahead of June's election.

According to a new Ipsos Reid poll for CTV and CP24, support for the Tories has gone up by two points since Friday. The party now sits at 39 per cent support.

The Liberals, meanwhile, are down one point to 30 per cent. The NDP sits at 24 per cent, which is down four points.

The change in the numbers is slightly more significant for the GTA itself. The Conservatives are up five points to 41 per cent, the Liberals are down one point to 36 per cent and the NDP is down five point to 18 per cent.

Within the 416 area, the Liberals jump ahead to 37 per cent support, while the PCs are at 34 per cent and the New Democrats are at 21 per cent.

The poll also suggests that the Tories continue to have more energized voters. Among the 50 per cent of those asked who say that "nothing short of an unforeseen emergency would stop me from getting to the voting booth and casting my vote," 40 per cent said they will vote for the Tories, 28 per cent would vote Liberal, and 20 per cent would vote for the NDP.

Finally, the poll shows that the first week of campaigning had little impact on voters.
