Opinion of Trudeau tanking, latest poll shows increasing voter dissatisfaction


A new poll by Leger released on Tuesday reveals a sharp decline in support for Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau. As Canadians near the halfway point of the 2021 election campaign, more and more people are expressing dissatisfaction with Trudeau and the Liberals. Leger found that over the past week, 41% of Canadians reported that their opinion of the Liberal leader has deteriorated. Additionally, 56% of Canadians expressed that they were dissatisfied with the Liberal government. The growing dissatisfaction shows an increase of 5% since Leger’s last survey on August 17, 2021. According to Leger, the survey was conducted only from August 27, 2021 to August 30, 2021. A total of 2,005 Canadians responded to the poll. A similar probability sample would have a margin of error of ±2.18%, 19 times out of 20. With regard to federal voting intentions, the Liberals have been steadily falling behind the leading Conservatives despite having a clear advantage prior to the election being call. The Leger poll reports that the Conservatives are currently 4-points ahead of the Liberals.
