A new online poll by INNOVATIVE of 2,579 Canadians conducted from May 7th to May 31st, 2021, shows the federal Liberals continue to lead on vote as satisfaction with the federal government rebounds from a low point in early April.
More than half of Canadians now say they are satisfied with the performance of the federal government, although nearly 1-in-4 (25%) say they are very dissatisfied. Most Canadians are not engaged with the federal government – only 48% say they’ve heard something about the Prime Minister in the last few days and among them 37% say what they heard made no difference to their impression of Justin Trudeau.
The Liberals remain positioned well with strong leads on vote in BC, Ontario, and Atlantic Canada (38%, 43%, and 47% respectively). However, in Quebec the Liberals (34%) are in a tight race with the Bloc (35%), which could be the difference between a majority or minority government if an election were held today. The Conservatives only lead in Alberta and the Prairies, but trail the Liberals by 16% in Ontario.
On the question of who would make the best Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has been untouchable since the pandemic began. Now, 44% say Trudeau is the best choice for Prime Minister while only 21% say Erin O’Toole and 19% say Jagmeet Singh.
