O’Toole and Singh rising, but Trudeau still seen as best pick for PM this election: poll


More Canadians are warming up to Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh as the election campaign goes on, a new poll suggests — but Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is still seen as the best choice for prime minister. The Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News found the number of people who want Trudeau for the top job is slipping, however. Thirty-four per cent of voters surveyed said the Liberal leader would be the best prime minister, down five points from the start of the campaign. O’Toole and Singh are tied at 29 per cent support, climbing four and six points, respectively, since the election was called. Trudeau’s support has particularly crumbled in Ontario (33 per cent said he would make the best prime minister, down seven points from the start of the campaign) and British Columbia (28 per cent, down 11 points) — both key battleground provinces that will decide which party forms government.
