PC Leader Tim Hudak’s gold-bricked path to the Ontario premiership has just gotten bumpier.
Only two months ago, Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal Party was poised for a devastating defeat at the hands of Mr. Hudak’s Conservatives. Now, with election day only five weeks away the two leaders are “neck and neck,” according to a new poll by Toronto-based polling firm Forum Research...
At the beginning of summer it may have seemed as if Mr. Hudak needed only to run laps around Ontario in a campaign bus waiting for October 6. Now, every word, campaign promise and platform point he delivers could ultimately decide whether he takes the premier’s chair.
“It’s going to be a very tight race …. when they’re this close, a campaign can move it one way or the other,” says Mr. Bozinoff.

My working thesis is the more Ontarians see of Tim Hudak, the less they will like him and his outdated policies, a focused voter not his friend. So far, so good:
