The patronage scandal that continues to batter the premier's office has hit home for voters, with almost 60 per cent believing the Ford government is corrupt and even more saying too many "cronies" have been hired, a new poll suggests.

The Corbett Communications survey also found that just 10 per cent of respondents think the departure of chief of staff Dean French — whose friends and family members received plum postings — will undo the damage.

"The cronyism question has not gone away; we saw another person outed (Friday)" over ties to French, said pollster John Corbett, referring to the resignation of Ian Neita, a board member for the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
