Justin Trudeau is Canada's most popular leader, according to a new poll.
The report — conducted by Harris/Decima for the Canadian Press — suggests that 57 per of Canadians have a "favourable view" of the new Liberal leader compared to favourability ratings of 42 per cent and 40 per cent for NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, respectively.
The survey also asked Canadians who they thought would make the best prime minister. Again, Trudeau finished on top with 33 per cent of the votes compared to Harper and Mulcair at 31 per cent and 18 per cent respectively.
