July 14, 2022

From June 30 to July 3, 2022, on behalf of Postmedia, Leger surveyed Canadians about their perspectives on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s performance and the CPC leadership race.

The survey explores whether Canadians:

  • approve or disapprove of the job Justin Trudeau is doing as prime minister of Canada
  • think Trudeau should resign or not
  • feel Justin Trudeau or Pierre Trudeau was a better prime minister for Canada
  • Trudeau’s performance, in terms of greatest accomplishments and greatest disappointments
  • and more

It also explores who Conservative supporters feel would make the best leader for the Conservative Party of Canada.

SOME OF THE KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR SURVEY ON TRUDEAU’S PERFORMANCE INCLUDE…

  • 55% of Canadians disapprove of the job Justin Trudeau is doing as prime minister and 39% approve.
  • Nearly half of Canadians feel Trudeau should resign before the next election and let someone else lead the Liberal Party.
  • When asked about Trudeau’s performance, according to Canadians:
    • The greatest proportion feel the legalization of recreational marijuana and managing the COVID-19 pandemic top his list of accomplishments.
    • The greatest proportion feel integrity issues top his list of disappointments.
  • 44% feel Canada has become a worse place to live since Trudeau was elected in 2015, 30% feel it is no different, and 17% feel it has become better.
  • 48% of Conservative Party supporters think Pierre Poilievre would make the best leader for the Conservative Party.

SURVEY METHODOLOGY

  • A web survey was conducted among 1,501 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, via Leger’s online panel, LEO.
  • The data was collected from June 30 to July 3, 2022.
  • As a non-probability online survey, a margin of error is technically not reported. If the data were collected through a probability sample, the margin of error would be ±2.5%, 19 times out of 20.
  • Using data from the 2016 census, the results were weighted according to age, gender and region in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
