The poll conducted on behalf of Postmedia newspapers reveals that Justin Trudeau's popularity rating is faltering. Only 40% of Canadians would approve of the Prime Minister's work, while 55% say they disapprove of him.
Across Quebec, the satisfaction rate with Mr. Trudeau is even lower: 59% of Quebecers say they disapprove of his work.
In addition, nearly half of respondents (49%) said they were of the opinion that Mr. Trudeau should resign altogether.
Nevertheless, the Liberal Party of Mr. Trudeau remains in the lead in the voting intentions, with a score of 32%, four points more than the Conservatives who collect 28%. Note that the Conservatives still have no leader. The NDP would be at 21% of the voting intentions.
In the province of Quebec, the Bloc Québécois leads with 33% of the voting intentions, ahead of the Liberals who stand at 29%.
Passing through Quebec on Friday, the Minister of Heritage and Lieutenant of Quebec, Pablo Rodriguez, explained the results of this survey by the difficult health and economic contexts.
"Of course after the pandemic [...], people are tired, they are worried, there is an increase in the cost of living and a host of factors, so all of that is normal," he said. -he declares. We understand and we work in this context to move forward with Canadians.”
The poll also asked Conservative supporters about who would be the best leader for the party.
It emerged from this that Pierre Poilièvre would be well ahead with 48% of the vote, compared to 14% for Jean Charest. Note that the survey was conducted before the disqualification of Patrick Brown from the leadership race, and that the respondents are not necessarily members who will decide on the identity of the next Conservative leader.
Remember that it is on September 10 that Erin O’Toole’s successor will be known.
