The Conservatives are at 38%, while the Liberals are down to 33%.
A new poll conducted by Ipsos and originally reported by Global News shows that the Conservatives have jumped to a five point lead in the wake of Justin Trudeau’s failed trip to India.
Here are the key numbers:
The Liberals are down 5 points since December, while the Conservatives are up 7.
Canadians have negative view of Trudeau’s India trip
The poll also asked Canadians what they thought of Trudeau’s India trip, and the reviews aren’t good.
40% said it had a negative impact on Canada-India relations, 21% said it had no impact, and just 16% thought it was positive.
The Liberals have also fallen 7% points behind in vote-rich Ontario, pulling in 36% to the Conservatives 43%.
Trudeau way behind in the prairies
Trudeau is getting crushed in Alberta, falling to third place with just 11%, while the Conservatives have 62% and the NDP are at 25%.
The Conservatives have a 20 point edge in Saskatchewan an Manitoba as well.
In BC, all three parties are basically tied, while the Liberals retain an edge in Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
Majority disapprove of Trudeau government
The poll shows a majority of Canadians opposing the Trudeau government – something that has been seen in other polls but not in past surveys by Ipsos recently.
54% say they disapprove, while 46% approve.
As Ipsos head Darrell Bricker said, the poll is the first by Ipsos since the election that showed the Trudeau Liberals trailing:
“It’s the first time we’ve shown, since before the election, any time the Liberals have been behind. They’ve been consistently four or five points ahead of their nearest competitor; sometimes more than that for the last two years and a bit.”
Bricker says perceptions are shifting:
“Something seems to have turned in terms of people’s reaction to the things that the government typically would do and get praised for.”
With his failures and incompetence now exposed for all the world to see, people are seeing the real Justin Trudeau, and even some of the media in this country are realizing what Trudeau is really all about: Deception, dishonesty, incompetence, and hypocricy.
Trudeau created an effective campaign propaganda image in 2015, but that image is now falling apart, and it seems Trudeau’s numbers are falling along with it.
