Under 2 in 3 Canadians say the federal government should either reduce spending and pay down debt or reduce spending and cut taxes. One in four say the government should continue as planned, while less than one in ten say the government should increase spending, funded either by more borrowing or higher taxes.

Nanos conducted an RDD dual frame (land- and cell-lines) hybrid telephone and online random survey of 1,071 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between February 28th and March 2nd, 2024 as part of an omnibus survey.

The margin of error for this survey is ±3.0 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The research was commissioned by Bloomberg News and was conducted by Nanos Research.
