A clear downward trend.
The Trudeau Liberals have fallen to a new low in support in Atlantic Canada.
While it remains their strongest region in the country, the downward trend is clear.
According to a survey by Corporate Research Associates, the Liberal approval rating has fallen to 51% in the region. That’s down from 66% in August of 2017, and 56% in February of 2018.
The number of people saying they will vote Liberal has fallen to 49%, a far cry from the 60% they had in November of 2017.
In that same time period, the Conservatives are up to 29%, compared to 23% in November of 2017.
And the numbers aren’t looking good for the NDP, who are stuck at 15%, barely up from the 13% they had months ago.
Trudeau is still the preferred candidate for PM in the region, though that number is down from 50% to 40%. Scheer is at 22%, while Jagmeet Singh has just 10%.
While there aren’t many seats in Atlantic Canada, a loss of support could be a big problem for the Trudeau Liberals. Having won every seat in the region in 2015 and holding a narrow majority, a loss of Atlantic Canada seats puts the Liberals on more perilous political ground.
