Ontario Voting Intentions - May 25

SURVEY METHODOLOGY

A web survey was conducted among 1,503 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 May 20 to 23, 2022.

For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1,503 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.5%, 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.
