THE fierce attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberals over the past weeks have failed to cause lasting damage to them as the latest Nanos federal tracking poll (March 29) shows the Liberals at 39.1 per cent support and the Conservatives at 33.7 per cent.
The NDP are far behind the Liberals and the Conservatives at 16.4 percent support, followed by the Greens at 6.5 per cent and the Bloc Quebecois at 2.4 per cent.
Trudeau remains the preferred choice as Prime Minister at 39 per cent of Canadians followed by Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer at 24.4 per cent, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh at nine per cent and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May at 5.7 per cent. Twenty per cent of Canadians were unsure who they preferred.
More than half of Canadians (55.1%) believe Trudeau has the qualities of a good political leader, while 40.9 per cent believe Scheer has the qualities of a good political leader. Almost four in 10 (38.9%) say Jagmeet Singh has the qualities of a good political leader, while 36.3 per cent believe the same about May. One in five (19.5%) say Bloc Qubecois Leader Martine Ouellet has the qualities of a good political leader (Quebec only).
