Poverty Conditions in Ontario Have Not Improved : Poll

Your Ontario Liberals are on a roll, folks. SES Research has released the results of another poll [PDF].

Now I'd like to ask your opinion on poverty levels in Ontario - that is the number of people who live at or below the poverty line. Do you believe there are more people, about the same number of people or fewer people living at or below the poverty line since the Ontario provincial Liberal government was elected in 2003?

Poverty levels (N=501, MOE ± 4.4%, 19 times out of 20)
More people 42%
About the same 35%
Fewer people 9%
Unsure 15%

77% of Ontarians believe that the number of people that live at or below the poverty line has either stayed the same or gotten worse.

Previously, 69% of Ontarians believed that health care had not improved - now we have 77% of Ontarians believing that poverty is an issue that the Ontario Liberals have utterly failed to address.
