A new poll shows that if a federal election were held, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would lose his position.
The poll was conducted by Leger between August 27-30 which showed that 34% of voters would vote for the Conservative Party.
30% of voters said they would vote for Liberals, and 24 per cent said they would vote for the New Democratic Party.
- In the past week, 41% of Canadians say their opinion of Justin Trudeau has deteriorated, while 23% say their opinions of Erin O’Toole and Jagmeet Singh have improved.
- 56% of Canadians are dissatisfied with the Government of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau – an increase of 5 percentage points.
- When Canadians are asked which leader would make Canada’s best Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh tie at 23%, but Erin O’Toole is a close second (21%).
- When Canadians are asked who will win the next Federal Election and form the next government:
- 39% say the Liberal Party (–8 percentage points *)
- 28% say the Conservative Party (+10 percentage points *)
- 7% say the New Democratic Party (–1 percentage point *)
The Conservatives need significantly more votes than the Liberals, if they wish to form government. (Remember, they lost the 2019 election with 1% more votes.) But it’s possible: not only are they are making a breakthrough in Atlantic Canada, but they also have at least 20% of the share of vote in Quebec and are within striking distance of the Liberals in Ontario. Another concern for the incumbent liberals is the strength of the NDP in Ontario and BC, which could cost them seats in both provinces.” – Christian Bourque, Executive Vice-President
The 2021 Canadian federal election will take place on September 20, 2021, to elect members of the House of Commons to the 44th Canadian Parliament.
