According to the latest figures released on May 10 by the Nanos federal ballot tracking, the Conservative Party of Canada lead at 35.4 percent, with the Prime Minister’s Liberal Party trailing at 29.7 per cent. The national poll also shows the New Democratic Party (NDP) is at 15 percent while the Bloc Qubecois (BQ) sits at 4.4 per cent. The Green party comes in second from bottom at 11.3 percent, while the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) languishes at the bottom of the table on 0.9 percent.
The poll asked voters which of the federal parties they would consider voting for.
Results showed 47.1 percent of Canadian voters would consider voting Conservative, while 45.4 percent say they would consider voting for Mr Trudeau’s Liberal Party.
Meanwhile, 38.3% would consider voting NDP while 35.8 percent would consider voting Green.
Only 9.4 percent of voters would consider voting for the People’s Party.
Despite trailing, 37 percent of voters would still consider voting for the BQ.
The Nanos poll still shows Mr Trudeau as the preferred choice for Prime Minister for 28.6 percent of Canadians.
But the Conservative Party leader Andrew Sheer was close behind Mr Trudeau with 28.4 percent of the vote.
New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh was backed by 7.3 percent of the electorate, while Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is backed by 10.8 percent and People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier trailing at bottom with 1.6 percent.
Twenty-two per cent of Canadians were unsure whom they preferred.
Only four in 10 Candians believe MR Trudeau possesses the qualities of a good leader.
Four in 10 Canadians (41.5%) believe Trudeau has the qualities of a good political leader and 39.7 percent believe Scheer would be a good choice to lead the country.
The new poll results come as economists bleakly warned how Mr Trudeau’s “Robin Hood” spending plan would not keep growth in Canada increasing ahead of October’s general election.
The Canadian prime minister had led the country to around three percent growth in 2017, the highest in the G7.
But a number of experts said the Prime Minister’s decision to concentrate on helping the mid dle classes – and those striving to become part of it – would stop overall economic growth.
