A Recent Poll Shows People In Canada Believe Trudeau Is The Only Party Leader That Can Handle Trump

A recent study done by Nanos Research shows that overall, Canadians feel Justin Trudeau is the best party leader to "manage the relationship" with Trump, compared to other party leaders.

While his numbers are down from last year, 36% of Canadians polled still felt Trudeau was the best man for the job.

TL;DR Based on a survey, Canadians feel Trudeau is the party leader best equipped for dealing with Donald Trump and his administration. The runner up? "None of them."

When Canadians were asked last year Trudeau's numbers were at 41%, though they did fall to 39% in September.

While he's still ahead of all the other party leaders, it does look as though the confidence of some Canadians has fallen in the past couple of months.

Trudeau clearly comes out on top.

"None," is sadly the resounding second choice, which shows just how many Canadians feel that no one can handle the Donald.

I don't know if that says more about our party leaders or the President. I'll let you be the judge of that.

Trudeau had the least support in the Prairies, where 31% of those surveyed thought Andrew Scheer was the best choice.

Andrew Scheer was also the choice for 25% of males who were asked, though 33% still voted with Trudeau.

Trudeau saw most support in Atlantic Canada with 42% of the vote.

He also saw high numbers among women with 40% of the vote.

Demographic and geographic groupings inlcuded Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies, BC, Male, Female, ages 18-34, ages 35-54, and ages 55 plus.

About 25% of every demographic asked believed that not one of Canada's part leaders could "manage relations with President Trump."

That number reached nearly 30% in BC and with people over the age of 55 nationwide. 

The survey is done over the phone and online and asks 1,000 Canadians. The margin of error for a random survey of this size is around 3%, 19 times out of 20.
