A recent online poll conducted in June by Postmedia-Léger suggests that Canadians are tiring of their Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, the National Post reports.

A clear majority of Canadians, over 60%, said Trudeau was divisive, and is contributing to growing national unity issues in Canada as he pits parts of the country against other regions.

The poll also found that 55% of Canadians strongly or somewhat disapprove of Trudeau’s performance. This sentiment was the same in all political parties. Meanwhile, only 7% strongly approved of Trudeau’s performance.

Nearly half (49%) believe that Trudeau should resign as leader of the Liberal party before the next federal election. Only 30% believe he should continue as its leader and 21% weren’t sure.

In the last federal election, held in August 2021, only 32.6% of Canadians voted for Trudeau and the Liberal Party. This means nearly 68% rejected him as Prime Minister.

However, Trudeau’s minority government was able to secure power by gaining the support of the country’s socialist New Democrat Party.
