You know it must be bad for Justin Trudeau when even CBC is pointing to his failings but that is what is happening in the state broadcaster's latest poll analysis.
A polling average compiled by Eric Grenier of ThreeHundredEight.com shows the Conservatives in the lead with 32% support, the Liberals at 31% and the NDP at 22%. Grenier says the Conservative lead comes about as left leaning voters shift to the NDP from the Liberals.
Trudeau's party was polling at between 33 and 34 per cent for the first three months of the year, but has been dropping over the last three weeks.
This is taking place as the New Democrats put together their most positive string of polls in more than a year. That was the last time the NDP managed at least 23 to 25 per cent support in four consecutive polls, the same streak they are currently riding.
The slip in the polls comes two years after Trudeau took the helm of the Liberal Party.
A poll released this week by Ipsos for Global News showed Stephen Harper has become the top pick among voters as the leader that would make the best prime minister.
