Last month, we reported that 65% of Canadians approve of our new PM after one year in office.

And now, a newly released Ipsos poll proclaims the honeymoon isn’t over.

The performance of the Liberal government under the leadership of Justin Trudeau has met the approval of 64% of Canadians in its first year.

But numbers are particularly staggering among those aged 18 to 34 (aka Millennials), where 78% per cent of respondents approve of the current government’s job.

Meanwhile, the Trudeau Government has met the approval of 64% of those aged 35 to 54, and 53% of those aged 55+.

Key findings from the poll are as follows:

  • The Trudeau Government has met expectations of 47% of Canadians, while exceeding the expectations of 11% more of Canadians.
  • Among the 41% of Canadians that feel the new government has fallen short of their expectations, 55% are Canadians aged 55+, while only 38% of those aged 35 to 54, and 29% of those aged 18 to 34 agree.
  • The PM has garnered 64% approval personally while the performance of his cabinet ministers has also received 59% national approval.

By comparison, six months into the Harper government’s rule only 46% of Canadians “felt that the majority government was working well.” By the end of 2014, that number had shrivelled to just 37%.

Say what you want about Trudeau, but he definitely seems to know how to stay popular.
