Trudeau’s Liberals hang on to lead, but majority in doubt: polls

The holidays have had little effect on the national voting intentions of Canadians, with polls continuing to show the Liberals holding a comfortable lead over the governing Conservatives.

A weighted average of the most recent national polls conducted up to Jan. 27 show the Liberals in front with 36 per cent, unchanged from where they stood at the end of November. The Conservatives have picked up one point to follow with 29 per cent, while the New Democrats are unchanged at 24 per cent support. The Bloc Québécois and Greens follow with 5 per cent apiece, while 2 per cent of Canadians say they would vote for another party or independent candidate.
