Looks like the popularity of the Ford government has collapsed...

From: https://www.mainstreetresearch.ca/ford-pc-support-collapses-while-liberal-voters-prefer-tory-as-their-leader/
Premier Ford has a net favourability rating of -53.5%. By comparison, Wynne’s net favourability rating stood at -35.3% on April 30th, 2018....The poll also surveyed Ontarians who they would vote for if an election were held today. Among decided and leaning voters, the Liberals with interim leader John Fraser at the helm have 39.9% (+13.9% since April), while the NDP have 24.2% (-2.4%). The PCs have 22.4% (-10%), while the Greens have 12% (+3%).

I find it quite surprising that conservative support has gone down so quickly. They're less than half way through their mandate, the economy is doing OK (apart from a few problems, but at least some of those problems had external causes). He has made a lot of budget cuts, but I don't think any of the cuts would have had much time to filter down to the level where they affect services. And there have been no big scandals as of yet.

People who voted for the conservatives should have had an idea what they were getting.
