Most of Trudeau's bounce comes from the vote-rich Ontario.

Just 24 per cent of respondents say the Trudeau Liberals deserve another term.

Support for the NDP is rising but they remain in third.

The race for parliament hill remains an uphill battle for the Trudeau Liberals according to a new national poll, but it’s not all good news for Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives.

A DART/MARU “Voice of Canada Poll” conducted last week still puts the PCs in first place with 37 per cent support, up 3 points from a similar poll earlier in June, but Trudeau has jumped eight points with 32 per cent.

Most of Trudeau’s bounce comes from the vote-rich Ontario, with many pollsters agreeing that a Liberal ad blitz linking Scheer with Premier Doug Ford, appears to be working.

As for the prime minister’s own popularity nationwide, just 24 per cent of respondents say the Trudeau Liberals deserve another term.

Jagmeet Singh’s NDP is up four points nationally, leaving them in a distant third place, with 17 per cent support.

The survey was conducted among 1,512 randomly selected Canadian adults who are members of MARU/Blue’s Online panel on June 26, 2019. The poll is accurate to within +/ – 2.9 percentage
points, 19 times out of 20, had all Canadian adults been polled.
