After Justin Trudeau and his Liberals seemed to have hit rock bottom in April during the SNC-Lavalin affair, a new poll suggests the government appears to have stopped the bleeding.
The Leger survey indicates the Liberals have closed the gap slightly with the front-running Conservatives, and that dissatisfaction with the Liberals seems to have eased somewhat.
The poll found 38% would vote Conservative if an election were held now versus 29% for the Liberals.
That’s a 2% decline for the Conservatives and a 2% improvement for the Liberals.
58% are dissatisfied with the government – down 7% while 36% are satisfied – an increase of 5%.
25% think Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer would make the best prime minister – unchanged since April’s survey, while 22% went with Trudeau – an increase of 2%.
Meanwhile, the Liberals have opened up a 14% lead over the Conservatives when it comes to which of the two parties Canadians would prefer to see win the October election.
