This is a honey moon that lasts for four moons… Some 100 days after the start of the Trudeau government, the liberals and the prime minister enjoy a level of support exceptional in Canada — including in Quebec, canada,, reveals a survey Light. And the NDP pay the price for this popularity.


The stroke of the probe pan-canadian realized for The Duty, and The Journal de Montréal and Le Journal de Quebec indicates that, if elections had been held between the 1st and the 4th February, the liberal Party of Canada (LPC) would have achieved 49 % of intentions of vote, far ahead of the conservative Party (27 %), led by Rona Ambrose.


The New democratic Party (NDP) is relegated to a form of marginality, with 15 % support in the country. The education of Thomas Mulcair gets 17 % in Quebec, equality statistics, with the conservatives and the Bloc québécois (15 %).


The difficulties of Mr. Mulcair is also read in the results to the question ” who would make the best prime minister? “. One person out of ten then quotes Mr. Mulcair… is four times less than Justin Trudeau (40 %). The numbers are similar in Quebec (40 % against 16 %).


The domination of the liberal is fully expressed in the Atlantic provinces (75 % support), Quebec (49 %), Ontario (50 %) and British Columbia (45 %). The liberals hold a slim lead in Manitoba and Saskatchewan (43 %, four points ahead of the conservatives), and are second in Alberta with 32 %. The conservatives are still strong in this province-a bastion, with 55 % support.


Compared to the results of the election on 19 October, the poll shows that the liberals have gained 10 points of support, so that the conservatives and the new democrats have lost about five each.


Overall, the “pathways sunny” of Justin Trudeau’s appeal to the population. A majority of survey respondents (54 %) say they are satisfied with the government, while 33 % are dissatisfied.


“Pass the guitar “


“We see that the block is conservative and resistant [to the liberals],” noted Christian Bourque, vice-president at Light. But otherwise, Justin Trudeau has stolen the electoral base of the NDP in October, and it continues to plague this basis, to pass the plow in the centre and to the left. “


At the end of the traditional grace period of 100 days following the election of a new government, the plebiscite is almost complete to Justin Trudeau. But what conclusion can be drawn Thomas Mulcair, whose leadership could be challenged at the congress of the NDP in April ?


Christian Bourque argues that the decline of the NDP and Mr. Mulcair is rather normal… but nevertheless disturbing. “After an electoral defeat, the people often punishes [the losing],” he said. We are still in this post-electoral phase which hurts the NDP and its leader. But there is room for concern, yes. “


Mr. Bourque noted, however, that the main quality that he lends to Mr. Mulcair is its great effectiveness as a parliamentarian. In this sense, “it is time that work resumes [it has been three weeks since the election], because the effect of the time will help Mr. Mulcair” to reposition itself, considers the analyst. “For the moment, there is only room for Mr. Trudeau. “




The survey allows also to measure the reception of syrian refugees by Canada divides the population. To the question of whether they are satisfied with the ” welcoming of 10,000 syrian refugees [this was essentially the goal of home for the December 31, 2015] by Canada “, 41 % of respondents said yes, and 38 % have rather reported their dissatisfaction. Supporters bloquistes (61 %) and conservatives (69 %) are more widely opposed.


Otherwise, the respondents felt in a proportion of 39 % that the “actions of the new Trudeau government on the international scene have improved” the image of Canada abroad. One in five (22 %) think that, on the contrary, these actions have “damaged” the image of canada.


The survey, non-probability, was conducted online between the 1st and the February 4, at 1524 Canadians. A probability sample of this size would have a margin of error of plus or minus 2.1% in 19 cases out of 20.
