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.
