Ipsos polling conducted exclusively for Global News suggests Canadians are losing confidence in government leaders and their response to the Omicron variant-fuelled COVID-19 wave, with support for lockdowns dipping to their lowest point since the pandemic began.
The poll found only 49 per cent of Canadians approve of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s response to the latest surge in cases and hospitalizations. Nationally, support for the country’s premiers has dipped five points since December, to 52 per cent.
Meanwhile, Canadians’ tolerance for lockdowns has dropped even further, with just 52 per cent of those surveyed saying they support lockdowns for as long as it takes to get Omicron under control.
Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs, explains.
