GOING DOWN: Trudeau Has Lost 12% Points In Just 3 Months

The November poll put the Liberals at 51%. A January poll put them at 42%. Now, they are at 39%.

The Conservatives are close behind at 35%.

It seems the more Canadians see Trudeau in office, the less we approve.

    Harper wasn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but compared to Trudeau he was a genius.

    • deplorabledave

      Ah yes the good old days, when the adults were running things.

      • k1962

        Exactly.

  • ntt1

    lets take the high road; What is there to approve of?

  • jayme

    The PCs are leaderless. On the other hand, this eternal leadership process they’re undergoing should be giving them publicity and a boost in the polls. Actually, I would have expected a bit more of a boost than they seem to have received, especially given the glaring incompetence and corruption of the Libs in the short time that they have been in office. So it’s not really that encouraging, all things considered. They better darn well pick the best of a rather uninspiring lot when they do finally vote because the nation is in trouble, not just the PC Party.

    • canminuteman

      I don’t see a boost happening because of the leadership[ race. So far it’s been a bit of a dogs breakfast. IF the Cons could pick a good leader they will win the next election by a land slide. I don’t see that happening. I see them electing someone who has no chance of being PM and we will end up with a NDP government. They could pick someone who their base despise so much that they stay home rather than vote for them. That is the situation in Ontario.

        It sounds like Bernier has a legitimate shot: I have warmed to him the more I’ve seen of him (though he’s not my first choice). I think he could beat Trudeau; also, the Ceeb likes Francophones, possibly even conservative ones, so they might be a tad less hard on him than on say, O’Leary

        • canminuteman

          Bernier is my choice. Not only because I think he can win, I also like his politics. I’m not a party member, however so I have no say in the matter.

      • Etobicoke_Gladiator

        A lot can happen before the next election, most definitely, including a possible large scale terrorist attack on Canadian soil. Anything can happen.

        As well, I can foresee a minority government in Ottawa next time round, whether Conservative (if a decent leader elected), Liberal (hope it’s not JT), or NDP (the least likely scenario). Alas, my crystal ball needs polishing, so I’m just hypothesizing here.

    1. Giving money away to foreign causes which 90% of the funds never get used for intended purposes..
    While our country’s services need improvement…
    2. Siding and promoting a minority of religious people almost all cultures who have encountered have had their people butchered by them.
    3. The more he talks the more people realize he is an empty shell.
    4. Middle class and diversity is our strength is all he parrots. Please trudeau show me examples…
    5. Massive debt

    I could list many more but I’d be here till April typing.

      But what about the hair?

      • moraywatson

        Hair today, gone tomorrow.

        • Baldness is hereditary.

          • k1962

            Yes, but on the mother’s side usually.

          • His dad went bald.

          • k1962

            Yes, but I have read that baldness is related to whether or not the son’s maternal grandfather was bald. I know PET was bald, but Justin won’t go bald. It would have happened by now. Too bad I know, it would serve him right.

          • Never hold out hope hat he may be screwed genetically.

          • k1962

            I won’t. He deserves to go bald!

          • Oh, the looks on everyone’s faces….

          • Chris

            Not true trust me

          • k1962

            Yes, I know there are probably plenty of bald men with bald fathers too 🙁

          • moraywatson

            I’m scratching my head over that one. It skips apparently. Or comes via maternal contributions.

          • He’ll go bald and with his hair, his bankability.

          • k1962

            Maybe he’ll get alopecia.

      • Starlord

        Hair that’s approx 12% support. Those people will never change their minds.

      • Justin St.Denis

        My wife swears that he has started dying the famous locks. Sunlight is a dead giveaway, she tells me…

  • canminuteman

    I see an NDP government in our future. If you think it’s bad now imagine someone like Notley as prime minister.

    • Exactly. And as soon as Justin falls out of favour the “unbiased” CBC will start Jonesin’ again for the NDP — the people the Government broadcaster normally supports. (funny how the CBC never supports conservatives — about 50% of the population)

    • mauser 98

      race to Zimbabwe..death spiral

    • andycanuck

      I lived through Boob Rae as premier. 🙁

      • Clink9

        “lived” Those were dark days at Hogwarts.

        • Justin St.Denis

          The level of abusiveness of the Rae government is unparalleled in Ontario history. I remember those times very well indeed…

      NDP federal leadership change coming up. Pick your poison:

      Peter Julian: He promised to get rid of tuition fees at post-secondary institutions, create new jobs, and oppose pipeline projects like Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and the Keystone XL pipeline.
      https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/02/12/new-democrat-mp-peter-julian-launches-leadership-bid-as-race-kicks-off.html

      Niki Ashton: Members of her team have worked in grassroots activism on issues like the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, women’s rights, Indigenous rights and other causes, she points out.

      Ashton isn’t afraid to label herself a democratic socialist and says the NDP has to shift farther to the left.
      https://thetyee.ca/News/2017/03/09/Niki-Ashton-Pledges-to-Steer-NDP/

      Guy Caron: The two biggest challenges Canadians face, Caron said, are income inequality and climate change, and it’s upon those two pillars that his platform will rest — a platform that includes a plan to launch a guaranteed basic income.
      http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/canadian-politics/threes-a-crowd-guy-caron-joins-federal-ndp-leadership-race-citing-economic-prowess

      Charlie Angus: The economy also has to be a priority for the NDP, which Angus argued is the true champion of working people and the “middle class” that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau frequently claims to be governing for.
      Canada also needs to transition away from fossil fuels to
      a green economy, which Angus called the “job of our generation.” But he stopped short of calling for a moratorium on pipeline construction and cautioned against moving too quickly because industries like the oilsands employ so many people.

      • Starlord

        NDP make me shudder.

  • ontario john

    I’m sure the Toronto Star will be intensifying their efforts now. Expect a major story on how he is the sexiest politician on the planet.

    • andycanuck

      They’re blowing him over some enviro sh1t conference he’s attending in Texas right now.

  • k1962

    They made a huge mistake in selecting him as their leader. He’s not smart. He just looks good in a suit and has the right name (for some). But really, the emperor is not wearing any clothes. He’s vacant upstairs, but I guess that’s what his puppet masters wanted. Jokes on them though . Pretty sad though that Canadians are so dumb and took them so long to notice what they elected.

    Harper said about Trudeau, “he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” I’ll never forget that line. He was so right.

    • UCSPanther

      The only reason Trudeau got in was that he was “The last man standing” in the last election, after the NDP, thankfully screwed up their chances and Conservative support collapsed.

      • simus1

        Er, no.
        Hardly anything changed in the voting preferences of people who had cast ballots in previous federal elections. It was the new to the ballot box cohort of gullible young people fresh from years of leftist “education” who “thought” SP was cool so they voted for his minions on the ballot.

        • k1962

          My son’s friends did (not my sons though). And they now regret it big time as they can see who he is helping and it’s not them.

      • k1962

        There was a huge effort underway to elect an MP who would defeat the Conservatives in every riding. They didn’t want people to split the left-leaning vote so that the Conservatives could sneak up the middle. I had someone come to my door to talk to me about it and I basically told her to get lost. You should have seen the shocked expression on her face when I told her that I didn’t want change and that I liked Stephen Harper. She looked at me like I was from outer space. People hated Stephen Harper very strongly. I hate to say that because as much as they hated him, I liked him. I even put his pictures that “he” mailed to me on my fridge 😉

        • Alain

          You are right about the level of hate for Harper, which was the fruit of nine years of the MSM with their own HDS. This was well known even prior to the election, which is why in my opinion, Harper should have allowed a change in leadership before hand. That would also have resulted in a better choice of replacement leader, than what we may get now. Instead he hung on to the bitter end, then after sitting on his hands in Parliament bailed out completely. So one could say he screwed the party and its supporters.

          • k1962

            Maybe 🙁

    • canminuteman

      Time will tell whether it was a mistake or not (I don’t mean for us, I mean for the Liberals. It was definitely a mistake for us. He gave them a majority government. As long as he doesn’t go prematurely bald, and lose the MSM’s support he will likely win again.

      • k1962

        I wish it wasn’t a majority. I don’t think he will win again, but if he does, it won’t be with a majority…I pray.

  • tom_billesley
  • andycanuck

    Oh. Not I.Q.

  • Tom Forsythe

    This just means another pay-off to the CBC has come due.

  • granny47

    The approval sounds to high…polls not trustworthy, or do we really have so many stupid people?

    • k1962

      I think we do, along with a lot of new immigrants/refugees. See all the new Syrian babies named Justin? Gag me. As if he footed the bill for them.

  • Maxsteele

    Too little too late by our retarded Canadian voters. By the time they get him out of office he will have put our nation so far down the debt toilet while lining the pockets of his friends it will take decades to get out of. This is criminal! Provincial and Federal governments must have a balanced budget law to keep these progressives, economically, ignoramous’ in check!

    • DMB

      Decades if we are lucky.

  • The question is why was he on top in the first place? How impossibly stupid are people to vote for debt?

    No, not ONE of the polls ever put reflected how Canadians truly felt about this dolt.

  • DMB

    I have no doubt many of Trudeau’s supporters are young voters who voted for him because he promised to legalize marijuana. However with the recent raid of pot dispensaries across Canada and Justin pretending he cares about law and order when in fact he wants to eliminate private sector competition so government agencies such as the LCBO can have exclusive rights to sell, distribute marijuana to the public many of Justin’s core supporters are beginning to feel disillusioned by Justin and his broken promises. Remember Justin made few campaign promises during the election. He mostly spoke about hope and change.
