Pierre Poilievre, the Opposition Conservative Party leader, has emerged as the preferred choice as prime minister by 40% of Canadian citizens, as incumbent Justin Trudeau lags behind, according to a new Ipsos poll done for Canada-based news platform Global News.

On the ongoing diplomatic stand-off between India and Canada triggered by Justin Trudeau’s allegations, Poilievre had stated that the Canadian PM should come out clean with all the facts.

“I think the prime minister needs to come clean with all the facts. We need to know all the evidence possible so that Canadians can make judgments. On that, the prime minister hasn’t provided any facts. He provided a statement,” said Poilievre while addressing the media.

Poilievre’s polling momentum is gaining speed with 40% of Canadians saying he is the best choice to be PM. His rating on this question is up five points from a year ago.

In contrast, the number of respondents who think PM Justin Trudeau is the best choice remains static year-over-year at 31%.

This poll results give an indication that Conservatives have high chance of getting a majority to form the government in the next elections in 2025.

In addition, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, a Khalistan sympathizer and a coalition partner of PM Trudeau, has slipped four points since September 2022, with 22% of respondents saying he is the best choice to lead the government.

On core issues facing Canada around the economy, health care, and housing, the poll found a majority of Canadians think Poilievre has the best plans across all three areas.

Ipsos CEO Darrell Bricker said this shows the Conservatives could form a majority government if an election was held today.
