Pierre Poilievre favourability

Favourability of Pierre Poilievre decreases with education

The less educated you are, the more likely you are to have a positive opinion of the Conservative Party of Canada leader.

A study by the Angus Reid Institute has found that favourability of Conservative Party of Canada leader Pierre Poilievre decreases the more educated one is.

The study found that Pierre Poilievre currently has 43% favourability among Canadians with a high school diploma, and 37% among college and trade school graduates. Just 27% of Canadians with university degrees have a positive impression of Pierre Poilievre, significantly less than those who approve of Justin Trudeau (48%), whose support increases the more educated one is. (For the complete table of results, please see page 1 in the report here.)

“The leader of the New Democratic Party, Trudeau’s partner in the confidence-and-supply agreement, is the most favourably viewed of the leaders of the three largest national parties. As many respondents have positive views of Jagmeet Singh (45%) as they do negative ones (45%).”
