The "Doug Ford factor" that some federal Conservatives worried would hurt their chances in Ontario this election appears to be very real, and especially significant, suggests a new survey conducted in partnership between the Angus Reid Institute and Postmedia.

The poll shows that half of Ontario's population sees their federal vote being swayed by the performance of Doug Ford's Progressive Conservative government in that province — and most are not being influenced in a way that will benefit the federal Tories.

Among those Ontarians who say their federal vote will be affected by their impressions of Ford's government, a whopping 85 per cent say the "policies and actions" of the provincial PC government will make them less likely to support Andrew Scheer's federal Conservative party.
