Just over one-quarter of Canadians favour Justin Trudeau’s performance.

The Nanos Research Mood of Canada poll, conducted alongside the Institute for Research on Public Policy, found only 27% of Canadians view the government as “good” or “somewhat good.”

Compared to prior iterations of the poll, dissatisfaction with the Liberal government is growing among the population at large. 

Previously, 44% of those surveyed had said Trudeau’s performance was very good or somewhat good. 

When Trudeau was first elected, 60% of people polled expressed satisfaction with Trudeau’s performance. 

In comparison, American President Donald Trump has seen a record-high approval rating according to the latest Gallup poll.

The poll found that 49% of Americans approved of Trump’s performance as president and half of all registered voters think he should be re-elected for a second term. 

Prior to 2019, election approval for Trudeau dropped to a new low with a majority of Canadians disapproving of his performance. 

Also according to Gallup, 52% of Canadians disapproved of Trudeau’s performance on the job and only 46% thought he was performing well. 

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
