OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who swept to power on a wave of optimism in 2015, is set for an ugly reelection campaign this October, judging by exchanges with voters in public town halls this month where he was grilled on topics ranging from immigration to housing affordability.

Opinion polls show his center-left Liberals are barely ahead of their rivals, and party insiders privately admit they might lose their majority in the House of Commons, which would crimp the government's ability to govern.

"The next election is going to be a referendum on Justin Trudeau...and whether or not people think he has performed," said Ipsos Public Affairs pollster Darrell Bricker.
