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.
