Horwath "the real winner": shows Ontarians they have a choice

TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Andrea Horwath showed Ontarians they can choose positive change on October 6, and Ontarians tuned in and heard her loud and clear:

      "Andrea Horwath... made the biggest impression on Ontarians as 67% say they have an improved impression of her as a result of the debate, while just 10% say their impressions worsened, representing a net score of +57, effectively making her the real winner of the debate. By comparison, Jack Layton's net improvement score in the English-language federal debate was +41 points, and +42 in the French-language debate." - Ipsos Reid
      "Horwath managed to come off as friendly and down-to-earth, without seeming a lightweight... When she told a story about a woman on the streets of Ottawa giving her a hug over an NDP education-related promise, Horwath did it with sincerity because she's the only leader who's done any significant mainstreeting during this election campaign." - Joanne Chianello, "Debate crowns NDP leader homecoming queen", Ottawa Citizen
      "Ms. Horwath... was vastly more confident and better-prepared than during her tentative performance in last week's dry-run Northern-issues debate. And she got off what was probably the line of the night - sharply interjecting, as Mr. McGuinty tried to explain his controversial cave-in this past weekend to opposition to a long-planned power-plant, that what has changed is that there's now an election campaign on." - Adam Radwanski, Globe and Mail, Sept 27, 2011
      "Andrea Horwath convinced 35% of viewers that she is the leader that has the best ideas and policies (+10)... Andrea Horwath (52%, +8) was chosen by a majority for being the most likeable, that is, the person they would most want to go out for a beer or coffee with." - Ipsos Reid

    "She brought that personality through" - Paul Bliss, LeDrew Live "She gave them [voters] reason to go to her team"- Will Stewart, LeDrew Live
