Canadians see NDP s Singh as a better PM than Tories  O Toole, Leger survey suggests
Politics
OTTAWA -- NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh might have reason to smile only weeks before a possible election call as a new survey suggests more Canadians believe he would make a better prime minister than the Conservatives Erin O Toole.

While the survey by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies had 25 per cent of respondents picking Justin Trudeau as the best prime minister, Singh wasn t far behind with 19 per cent while only 13 per cent chose O Toole.

The survey also found a slight increase for the NDP among decided voters, who otherwise remained largely unchanged in their support for the Liberals and Tories.

The survey could represent bad news for O Toole and the Conservatives as they seek to connect with Canadians, but it could also signal trouble for Trudeau s chances of winning a majority Liberal government.

That s because previous election results have seen the Liberals suffer from strong support for the NDP.

The online survey, conducted July 16 to 18, polled 2,069 Canadians. It cannot be assigned a margin of error because internet-based polls are not considered random samples.
