Canadians divided on Trudeau’s performance: Poll

Canadians are evenly split on whether they happy or unhappy with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s performance since he came to office in 2015, says a new poll.

An online survey by Leger in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies revealed that 48% approved of his performance as a leader while 47% disapproved.

The top three issues Canadians think Trudeau has performed well or very well on were – managing the COVID-19 pandemic (55%), improving Canada’s international reputation (47%), and improving relations with provincial and territorial leaders (42%).
However nearly half (47%) of Canadians surveyed indicate their opinion of Trudeau has worsened since he became prime minister in 2015.

When asked whom they would vote for if the federal elections were today, 34% of decided voters would cast their ballot for the Liberals, 29% for Erin O’Tooles Conservatives and 22% for Jagmeet Singh’s NDP and 4% for the Green Party led by Annamie Paul.

This web survey was conducted from July 16, 2021 to July 18, 2021 with 2,069 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.
It cannot be assigned a margin of error because internet-based surveys are not considered random samples.
