Leader approval ratings

What do Canadians think of the leaders’ performances?

This leader approval ratings chart shows the results of all publicly available opinion polls concerned with leader approval ratings. These public opinion polls survey a sample of eligible voters to find out whether they approve or disapprove of the performance of each party leader. These leader approval ratings are updated as new polls are released. (Only polls giving the option for being undecided are included. For Bloc Québécois (BQ) leaders, results are for Quebec only.)

Highs and lows

What has been each leader's highest and lowest approval ratings?

This chart shows the range of results for each of the current party leaders, highlighting the lowest and highest approval ratings they have registered. The chart also shows where the latest poll compares to this range of results. The data for past prime ministers only shows their highest and lowest ratings. Note that the polling data for past prime ministers is incomplete, and so the results are based solely on the polling data that is still publicly available.
