Nanos Research reported a 6 point drop in support from 2016 for the Trudeau Liberals.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government are now more unpopular than they have ever been before.
According to the latest Nanos-IRPP survey, just two years into their mandate, only 37% of Canadians now approve of the Trudeau Liberals performance in government; down from 43% in 2016.
As an interesting point of comparison, that’s the same approval rating former Prime Minister Stephen Harper received from the same research firm in 2014; in his ninth year as PM.
After spending the year dogged by ethical scandals and widespread public backlash over his government’s tax reform proposals, it should come as no surprise to Trudeau that his government’s popularity is down.
In addition to the government’s approval numbers dropping, as one would expect, their disapproval numbers have also climbed this past year. Up from 23 % two years ago and 33 % last year, 39% of Canadians now think that the Trudeau Liberals are doing a bad job in government.
