Majority of Canadians disapprove.
With recent polls by Angus Reid and Nanos showing Justin Trudeau with weak approval/leadership ratings, another survey confirms this.
According to the latest Forum Research poll, the majority of Canadians continue to disapprove of the PM, giving him the worst net approval ratings of all the federal leaders.
Here are the numbers:
Trudeau: 34% approve, 56% disapprove -22 net approval
Scheer: 33% approve, 45% disapprove -12 net approval
Singh: 23% approve, 40% disapprove -17 net approval
May: 44% approve, 22% disapprove +22 net approval
A few things jump out here.
First, Trudeau is very unpopular, with a clear majority of Canadians against him.
Second, Scheer is at a crucial inflection point, where he could have decent numbers if he boosts his popularity, or could fall to Trudeau-level disapproval if the Liberals/establishment media define him even more negatively.
Finally, Singh and the NDP are in huge trouble. Since election campaigns are so leader-focused, the fact that Elizabeth May is so much more popular than him means the NDP could lose even more support to the Greens over the campaign period, potentially setting them up for a total collapse.
