FORUM POLL: Liberal Support Drops Noticeably After Debate, Singh’s Numbers Rise, Trudeau Seen As Debate Loser, Scheer Viewed As Best PM

Jagmeet Singh gets the biggest boost following debate, while Andrew Scheer takes lead as preferred PM.

Following the federal leaders debate, the widespread view was that Jagmeet Singh and Andrew Scheer performed well, while Justin Trudeau had a rough night.

Now, a new Forum Research poll taken after the debate backs up that view.

According to the survey, the Conservatives are up 4 points to 35%, while the Liberals are down 6 points to 28%. The NDP is up 1 point to 13%, while the Greens, Bloc, and PPC are at 12%, 7%, and 3% respectively.

Notably, on the question of preferred PM, Justin Trudeau has fallen 6 points from 31% to 25%, while Jagmeet Singh is up 6 points, from 13% to 19%.

Scheer remained steady at 29%, putting him in the lead on that question.

When it comes to who won and lost the debate, 23% picked Scheer as the winner, while 21% picked Singh.

15% thought Trudeau won, while 6% picked Bloc leader Blanchet.

5% thought Elizabeth May won, while 2% picked Maxime Bernier.

Trudeau the big loser

Trudeau was seen as the big loser of the debate, with 29% saying he lost.

21% said Scheer lost, while 15% said Bernier lost.

Notably, only Trudeau and Bernier had more people viewing them as debate losers, while all the other party leaders had more people seeing them as winners.

While the NDP numbers haven’t moved much, a change in opinion towards a party leader often leads to better numbers for their party. So, Jagmeet Singh could soon see his NDP party gaining voters, especially if the Liberal post-debate drop is sustained.

Now, if only the numbers continue in this direction….


I tend to take opinion poll numbers, published in the media, with a grain of salt, even if I like the results. What matters is the trajectory, the Libranos have been trailing in more polls then then have been leading in, and those that they have led in were not by much. There are also internal party polls, and judging by how unhinged Mr. Trudeau (I call him Turdeau) has become, including in the debate, I don’t think things are going very well in the Librano camp.


Yes, Trudeau is a loser but, so is Singh, Scheer, May and the arrogant Frenchman from the Bloc. It’s obvious that low information Canadians can’t tell a loser from a winner and have been brainwashed to think that anyone who speaks the truth about Immigration and Climate Change is a loser! That’ s the state of the brainwashed /braindead majority of Canadians! And, for their stupidity, apathy and laziness, they’ll get exactly what they deserve from a loser like Andrew Scheer and the Globalist Conservative party government that in reality has been selected by and is working for the UN… Read more »

Unless one truly wishes a ‘spoiled child’ running our country, his support ought well to diminish. We have had four trying years watching and listening to a spoiled child pretend to be a ‘leader’ and failing badly. Enough is enough and since we need our country returned to us, it is time to put the ‘spoiled child’ to bed.


I find it hard to believe that only 2% picked Bernier as the winner considering how popular Bernier appears to be on social media.
