Support for the federal Liberals has dropped over the last three months according to a new poll by Angus Reid.
The survey finds the Liberals are favoured by 29 % trailing the Conservatives at 35 %.
But it also finds Justin Trudeau remains more likeable in areas where Poilievre must win including Ontario, Quebec and BC.

- Three-in-five (59%) believe inflation to be a top issue facing Canada. Half (48%) select health care. Both significantly outpace other concerns such as housing affordability (27%), the environment (23%) and the economy (19%).
- A plurality in Metro Vancouver, Montreal and the 416 and 905 area codes of Toronto say they would vote Liberal if an election were held tomorrow. However, in the latter most, the gap between the Liberals and the CPC is not as large as the other major cities.
- Though women still are more likely to view Poilievre negatively than positively, he has gained four points of favourability (22% to 26%) among women over the age of 54 since December. Trudeau, meanwhile, has seen his approval among that demographic decline by seven points (53% to 46%).
