If the Ontario election were held today, it would be too close to call between the incumbent Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives.

Forum Research has numbers from its automated phone call polling system from Tuesday showing a deadlock.

Kathleen Wynne's Liberals and Tim Hudak's PC's each have 36 percent of decided voters, while Andrea Horwath and her New Democrats languish 16 points back at 20 percent. When comparing a Forum poll last week, the Liberals have dropped 5 points, the PC's have gained 2 and the NDP is flat.

It appears 36 percent would not be enough for any one party to form a majority. Forum President Lorne Bozinoff tells the Star that the Liberals and PC's each need four points to get to 40 and either one of them at 40 is probably going to get a majority.

He says "the big crap shoot now is the (leader's) debate, which is next Tuesday."
