In October, Canadians are expected to go to the polls, however Trudeau wants to keep his popularity, after the became involved in claims that his assisters pressured the former justice minister, who’s called Jody Wilson-Raybould, in order to make sure that the construction firm called SNC-Lavalin will avoid a corruption inspection. Trudeau insists that they didn’t do anything illegal, however, 41% of the Canadians don’t agree with him. According to the same source, only 12% of the population believed he didn’t do anything wrong after leaving his Liberal Party in chaos.
People want the Conservative party
People were also asked in a poll a question regarding which party respondents are going to vote in the election from the autumn. 36% of the people said that they will vote for the opposition Conservative party, and 34% said that they will vote for the Liberals, so for Trudeau. This marks the first time ever since 2015, when the general election showed that the Conservatives are ahead of Liberals – which, as you might already know, were once the first ones in the polls.
However, the results have left the team of Trudeau fearing that they could be forced into a coalition government in about 8 months. People also answered on a poll about which party leader would make the best Prime Minister. Trudeau received the most support, with 26% of people voting for him. This came with a 7-point dive from a similar Leger poll, that took place in November, last year. Andrew Scheer, who’s the opposition – the Conservative leader, got 21%. The Green leader, Elizabeth May came them with 8%, and New Democratic Party’s Jagmeet Singh, then, with 6%.
