Everyone Seems to Hate Doug (Ford) and that pains the CPC and (Andrew) Scheer

As the elections draw closer in Canada, polling by the Angus Reid Institute shows that many Canadians plan on voting for the party in their riding based on their Provincial Premier. And nowhere is that more significant than in Ontario (for the Conservatives)
Ontario Premier Doug Ford has not been seen with the Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer at all when Scheer makes his campaign rounds through Ontario. In fact, Scheer never mentions Ford at all. On the other hand if you attended a Trudeau or even a Singh rally the name of Premier Doug Ford echos from the podium.
According to Citynews, the DARTMaru poll has Ford as the 2nd least popular Premier of the provinces polled in Canada (PSI, Nanavut, Northwest and Yukon are not provided due to small size). He only rates higher than Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil; and McNeil has gained 5 points since last polling and Ford dropped 3)

From the Angus Reid Institute:
It appears Scheer is onto something: the latest study from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute finds that indeed, half of Ontarioís population (49%) say that Doug Fordís government will sway their vote. Among this group, the vast majority (85%) say they are less likely to support Scheer and the Conservative Party.

Overall, this equates to four-in-ten (42%) Ontario residents who say Fordís government will dissuade them from voting for the CPC. In a province that many say could win or lose the election, every vote counts and this data suggests the federal party risks alienating much-needed voters by standing too close to Ford.

Nationally, four-in-ten Canadians (39%) say that the policies and actions of their provincial government will have an impact on who they decide to vote for at the federal level.
