Provincial Politics in Ontario – January 27, 2022

January 28, 2022

From January 21 to 24, 2022, Leger surveyed eligible Ontario voters about provincial politics in Ontario to understand their voting intentions, impressions of the provincial party leaders, and perspectives on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


A web survey was conducted among 1,000 Ontario residents, 18 years of age or older, who are eligible to vote in Ontario, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

The data was collected from January 21 to 24, 2022.

For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1000 respondents would have a margin of error of ± 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.

The results were weighted according to gender and age within Ontario regions, as well as by education and presence of children in the household in order to ensure a representative sample of the population. 


  • If a PROVINCIAL election were held today, for which political party would you be most likely to vote for?

  • Below are names of several individuals who have been mentioned in the news recently. For each one, please indicate whether you have a favourable or unfavourable impression of that person. If you do not recognize the name or know enough about the person, just indicate that.
  • As we begin 2022 with continued public health orders, lockdowns, and restrictions, which of the following BEST describes your general feelings towards the COVID-19 pandemic at this point in time?
  • Generally speaking, do you feel the provincial government has done a good or poor job preparing the K-12 school system for a return to in-class learning?
  • The Omicron variant has led to a significant rise in infections which has led to increased hospitalizations, straining the province’s ICU capacity. This has resulted in the return to lockdowns of businesses and increased public health restrictions.
