COVID-19 Survey – June 2, 2020

Did you know that:

  • 42% of Americans would prefer Justin Trudeau to lead their country, while 38% would prefer Donald Trump. In contrast, 76% of Canadians would prefer Trudeau and 10% would prefer Trump.
  • 48% of Canadians and 36% of Americans think that the second wave of COVID-19 is impossible to avoid.
  • 77% of Canadians think that individual Canadians have a greater responsibility to take adequate measures to avoid a second wave of COVID-19, while 18% of Canadians feel governments have a greater responsibility to do so.
  • 37% of Canadians think the worst of the COVID-19 crisis is behind us, a 9% increase from last week

These are some of the findings of Leger’s latest survey, conducted May 29-31, 2020 among 1,536 Canadians and 1,002 Americans, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

Each week, Leger will publish a survey conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press to help governments, businesses and citizens better understand the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians in the face of the current health and economic crisis. This series of surveys will be available on Leger’s website.
