Scheer's favourability rating dropped during campaign, while Singh's rose, Mainstreet polling shows - 2019-10-18
Andrew Scheer's favourability numbers have tumbled over the course of this election campaign, while NDP leader Jagmeet Singh's have jumped, new polling numbers from Mainstream Research for iPolitics suggest.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's favourability rating has been essentially stagnant over that time, according to these survey figures.
In Mainstreet's Sept. 14 polling numbers, the Conservative leader was found "very unfavourable" by 29.8 per cent of voters. But in results from the firm's daily tracking poll on Oct. 17, that number hiked to 38.6 per cent, while the number of voters who found Scheer "very favourable" remained constant, dropping slightly from 18.3 per cent in mid-September to 17.7 per cent on Thursday.
