“Voters seem to have turned away from the Trudeau Liberals,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research. “Trudeau himself is seeing very high levels of disapproval right now, which could be contributing to the considerable sag in Liberal support. Trudeau is far better known than Scheer or Singh, however, so if the other two leaders can’t raise their profile amongst voters, winning the next election will be a far harder task for them.” Lorne Bozinoff, Ph.D. is the president and founder of Forum Research.
