Majority of Ontarians Want Premier Ford to Resign, Says Recent Poll
The Angus Reid survey indicates that only around 28 percent of Ontarians approve of the premier
Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s popularity has hit a historic low in the wake of two explosive Greenbelt reports, according to a recent poll published on Friday.
The Angus Reid survey indicates that only around 28 percent of Ontarians approve of the premier, marking a five-point drop from his approval ratings in June. This represents the lowest rating he has received since his election in 2018.
In addition to dwindling approval ratings, over half of the respondents believe that Premier Ford should step down due to the Greenbelt controversy. Remarkably, this sentiment is shared by about a quarter of Progressive Conservative voters.
Ford’s support among PC voters has also taken a hit, dropping from 80 percent approval in June to 63 percent in September.
