Commentary
Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberal Party continue to trend upward in this RSR public opinion poll (survey), while the Conservative Party holds its position in sharp decline from the last federal general election in 2011.
The federal Liberals support is double that which they received in the last general election. The Conservatives under Stephen Harper are down in support by (30%). The New Democrats are down by (10%), but within the margin of error.
The number of Canadians who believe Global Warming exists and is a problem is rapidly increasing from RSR polls and surveys over the past few years.
Based on information provided to each respondent that the Senate will be hard to remove from the Constitution, most Canadians (43%) support Justin Trudeau's decision to remove Liberal Senators from his party caucus. This response choice was selected by (47%) of female respondents. Nearly one third of respondents remain insistent that the Senate be abolished notwithstanding the challenge produce the changes to the Constitution.
The federal Liberals are clearly seen to be the party of choice on the question of who would manage the economy in the best interest of all Canadians (42%), drawing support away from the Conservatives and New Democrats in the process.
A clear majority of decided Canadians are of the opinion that the practice of appointing Judges should not continue, likely a sentiment in part related to the ongoing problems with the Senate in the news (constantly).
This is an RSR Survey of 1,421 respondents across all Canadian provinces including 525 from the Greater Toronto region of the Province of Ontario. Overall, this represents a margin of error of 2.6% Margin of Error, 19 times out of 20 with a confidence level of 95%. Best efforts were made to match number of respondents to corresponding population and to gender composition for those provinces.
The RSR Survey outcomes were produced between February 9-13, 2014.
