Canadian Federal Politics – September 20, 2022 

September 20, 2022

On the behalf of The Canadian Press, Leger surveyed Canadians about their voting intentions. 


This poll comes after the election of Pierre Poilievre as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

  • If a federal election were held today, 34% of decided Canadian voters would vote for Pierre Poilievre’s Conservative Party of Canada, 28% would vote Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada, 23% would vote for Jagmeet Singh’s New Democratic Party of Canada, 8% would vote for Yves-François Blanchet’s Bloc Québécois, 3% would vote for Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada, 3% would vote for Amita Kuttner’s Green Party of Canada, and 1% would vote for another party.
  • When we asked Canadians which federal party leader would make the best prime minister of Canada… 
    • 24% said Justin Trudeau 
    • 21% said Pierre Poilievre 
    • 17% said Jagmeet Singh 
    • 3% said Maxime Bernier 
    • 1% said Amita Kuttner 


  • This web survey was conducted from September 16 to 18, 2022, among 1,522 Canadians over the age of 18, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.  
  • A margin of error cannot be associated with a non-probability sample in a panel survey. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1,522 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.51%, 19 times out of 20.
