One in two Canadians wants a prime minister other than Justin Trudeau

More than half (54%) of Canadians think Justin Trudeau should step down as Liberal leader and that Canada is due for a new prime minister, according to an Ipsos poll conducted for Global News.

Unsurprisingly, support for such a change is strongest in Alberta (65%), but it is also a sentiment that prevails in the Atlantic provinces (57%), as well as in Ontario, in Manitoba and Saskatchewan (56%).

It is in Quebec that the poll is more favorable to Mr. Trudeau, while only 43% of people hope to see him leave the highest office in the country.

The data also reveals that 49% of Canadians think there should be a federal election in 2023.

With a proportion of 65%, young people aged 18 to 34 are the most eager to want to go to the polls.

Survey participants also rated the performance of key national party leaders. Only Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the New Democratic Party (NDP) received majority support, reaching 53%.

Justin Trudeau has 45% favorable opinions and Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre 41%. Yves-François Blanchet, of the Bloc Québécois, reaches 43%, even though the poll was carried out across the country.

Remember that the next federal election must legally be held only in 2025, four years after the general election of 2021 which gave Justin Trudeau a second minority government.

The Ipsos poll was conducted among 1,004 Canadians between December 14 and 16.
