Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne has come out on top in a new poll that asked Ontarians who would make the best premier.

Voters also tended to view Wynne as more honest than the average politician and a better premier than her predecessor Dalton McGuinty, the Abacus Data poll found.

Wynne was the best premier choice of 26% of those polled, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak got the nod from 20% and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath was third with 18%.

Abacus Data Inc. CEO David Coletto said that the Wynne numbers, combined with polling showing the Liberals and PCs tied at 33% among committed voters, put the Grit campaign in a positive position.
