Despite recent numbers for party support painting one picture, some voters in Ontario appear to feel differently about who they want to actually lead the province.
According to the latest Ipsos-Reid poll conducted on behalf of CTV News and CP 24 -- but shared exclusively with NEWSTALK 1010 -- 34% of eligible voters prefer Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne as leader of the Ontario goverment; the NDP's Andrea Horwath sits second with 33% support, while only 32% want Tory leader Tim Hudak in as the next Premier.
Ipsos Reid's poll released Friday showed that among decided voters, the party race is in a dead-heat with the PCs and Liberals at 35% support, and the NDP trailing a fair bit behind at 26%.
According to these numbers, more voters are keen on a Progressive Conservative government than an NDP government. But Horwath is slightly the more popular choice over Hudak as provincial leader.
