“The Liberals have had a stumble out of the starting blocks and the other parties have taken advantage of that”Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs
Justin Trudeau is still in the lead at 39% to lead the Country with Erin O’Toole coming in at 25% and Jagmeet Singh at 23%. These polls showed that Justin Trudeau’s popularity is on the downswing as he sat comfortably at 50% during the Covid-19 pandemic. “The Liberals have had a stumble out of the starting blocks and the other parties have taken advantage of that,” said Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs. With lots of controversy swirling at the start of the election including handling of the Fourth wave of Covid-19 Pandemic and the evacuations of Canadians from Afghanistan. This has really caused his popularity to fall especially in Ontario where the Conservatives Erin O’Toole has jumped to a 4-point lead over Liberals leader Justin Trudeau.
Conservatives Lead in Ontario
“A lead of this much in the province of Ontario for the Conservatives suggests that the Conservatives are going to do really well in the 905 if these numbers hold up,” he said.
