Federal Poll: More Canadians Open To Voting Conservative Than Liberal

Nanos survey shows the Trudeau Liberals have lost the advantage they once had in accessible voters.

A new Nanos Research poll shows the Conservatives now have more accessible voters than the Liberals.

It represents a big reversal for the Trudeau Liberals, who long held an advantage when it come to the number of Canadians willing to vote for them.

According to the survey, 46.3% of Canadians say they would ‘consider’ voting Conservative. That number is 44.6% for the Liberals, and 40.5% for the NDP.

The survey shows the top-line numbers tied, with the Conservatives at 34%, the Liberals at 34.1%, and the NDP at 21.2%.

Trudeau is seen as the preferred pick for PM, but just 34.3% say he’s their top choice, which are not good numbers for an incumbent PM that was once elected with nearly 40% of the vote. It’s also a downward trend for Trudeau over time.

By contrast, Andrew Scheer’s numbers have continued to show slow, but steady improvement, with 25.6% saying he’s their top choice for PM.

Jagmeet Singh is way back, with a mere 10% of Canadians picking him as the best choice for the top job.

Overall, these are good trends for Scheer. So far, we are seeing that the more Canadians watch Justin Trudeau in power the less they support him, and the longer Scheer is in the spotlight the more opinion of him improves – even if that improvement is happening at a snails pace.
