Jobs and the economy are the two most important issues resonating with voters in the lead up to the June provincial election.

A new online poll done by Ipsos-Reid for CTV and CP24, but shown exclusively to Newstalk1010, was done between Monday and Wednesday of this week and spoke to more than 800 people.

Pollster John Wright, says 24% of the respondents to the poll suggested they thought jobs and the economy were the most important issue.

Second on that list is lower taxes at 13% and integrity at 10%.

If you combine the second choice of issue importance among voters, the economy and jobs had 40% followed  by lower taxes at 27% and lower energy costs at 21%.

"The major issues that are driving people to the ballot box, line up almost identically with (Tim) Hudak's plan." says Wright.

And he says the call for a change of government is louder outside of the 416.

"There seems to be a sense outside of Toronto, that Mr. Hudak's plan is a plan that they want, and they are voting against Queen's Park and the waste."

Questions in the poll also asked people about their emotions heading into this election.

More than a quarter of the respondents say they will vote out of fear another party could win, while 15% said they are angry and don't want another party to win.
