Jagmeet Singh is way behind, even trailing Elizabeth May.
For the first time in Angus Reid polling, Andrew Scheer is seen as the best choice for Prime Minister.
33% of Canadians picked Scheer, while 27% picked Trudeau. Scheer’s support on that question jumped significantly since Q1 of 2018, when just 22% picked him.
26% say they don’t know.
Meanwhile, the numbers for Jagmeet Singh are absolutely disastrous.
Just 6% of Canadians pick him as the best choice for PM, meaning he’s even trailing Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, who is picked by 7% of Canadians.
When it comes to approval rating, Trudeau’s rating has fallen dramatically to 35%. Scheer is slightly ahead with 36% approval. However, the gap in approval vs disapproval favours Scheer by a large margin.
Scheer’s net rating is -5, while Trudeau’s net rating is -23. Elizabeth May’s net rating is -11, with Jagmeet Singh at -22.
Additionally, 23% say they haven’t made up their minds about Scheer, while just 7% have yet to decide on Trudeau. This gives Scheer more room to potentially grow his support, while Trudeau’s numbers could be more locked-in.
While the overall federal race remains close, it is always a bad sign for an incumbent government when the Opposition Leader is seen as a better choice for PM than the person who is actually in the PM role.
