Justin Trudeau has been Prime Minister for more than 7 years now. The Liberals have now been in power in Canada for 20 of the last 30 years. The Liberals won the 2015 election with nearly 40% share, this fell to 33% in 2019 and 32.6% in 2023. However, the Liberal party has continued to struggle in the provinces with ordinary results in both Quebec (-10%) and Ontario (+4.3%). The NDP on the other hand has struggled in the Federal elections but continues to be a powerful party in the provinces posing a threat to the Liberals at the Federal level sooner than later.
The Conservatives have been struggling with leadership issues after Stephen Harper though Poilievre appears to have given the Tories a bump and could soon pose a threat to Trudeau.

Despite numerous setbacks this year, Justin Trudeau appears to have stabilized his approval ratings around 42%. Still, a majority of voters want to see a different face leading the Liberal party in 2023. Voters are desperately concerned with the rising costs of living and are disappointed in the Trudeau government for not providing a credible solution to counter it. In the meanwhile, Poilievre probes for opportunities across voting segments and provinces. The Conservative Party leads most of the latest federal election polls. The NDP continues to pose a threat to the Liberals even though Jagmeet Singh has failed to beat Trudeau on preference.
Pierre Poilievre has time and again said that he feels like Canada is broken, however, what he needs is to show people how he and the Conservatives are waiting to mend it when elected. Poilievre must work on his image amongst women and especially the suburban women (a swing group) and convince them that he has solutions for making their lives more affordable. He needs to adopt a solution-based approach to be able to inspire confidence.
