If the results of a recent poll are any indication, the answer to the above question is yes.
A Mainstreet Research poll conducted on Tuesday, which posed the question ‘If the provincial election were held today, how would you vote?’ to 450 Parry Sound-Muskoka constituents of voting age, the Greens’ Matt Richter came out on top at 39 per cent, followed by Graydon Smith of the PC Party at 30 per cent.
The remaining results were as follows: 14 per cent were undecided, 11 per cent expressed support for NDP candidate Erin Horvath, and the remaining seven per cent were split between Doug Maynard of the New Blue Party, Andrew John Cocks of the Ontario Party, and ‘another candidate’. Brad Waddell is running for the Populist Party and Daniel Predie Jr is running as an independent. There is no Liberal candidate for this riding.
The poll was conducted via automated telephone survey. The margin of error for the poll is +/- 4.6 per cent at the 95 per cent confidence level.
When undecided voters leaning toward a specific party are taken into account, the Greens’ share of the poll rises to 43 per cent, while the PCs narrow the gap slightly with an additional six-per-cent share to place them at 36 per cent.
