New poll shows Canadians support Trudeau, Liberals

A new Mainstreet Research poll suggests if a federal election were held today, the Liberals would be re-elected, and with a majority government.

    In fairness, the PCs under Scheer are appearing more and more like their RINO counterparts in the States, so I guess it doesn’t really matter much but …. excuse me while I wander off and cry quietly in despair 😉

    • Sad but true. Fuck em.

      • JPfromtheeast

        Yup. I cancelled my membership early by 8 months. Note that I only got it so that I could vote for the new CPC leader. I did not have Scheer as my #1.

        It is the first and last money I EVER let go to a political party.

          Scheer was my absolute last, I’ll grudgingly hang on, only to see IQ80 being shown the door.

        • Lightstream

          Exactly what I did too.

    A colleague at work felt compelled to tell me that JT appeared to be doing “alright”; I asked him what specifically the Liberals had done that was beneficial to the nation or to him personally. “Um, ah, welll ….” I guess the blatant Liberal bias of the MSM is partly to blame but the sheer stupidity of the average Canadian cannot be underestimated either.

      It’s partly stupidity, its mostly brainwashing. Some people pay attention to politics and think he is doing a great job. Those are the stupid. An awful lot of people who are intelligent don’t pay any attention to politics or the news at all. All they get are the MSM stories about how great he is, and since they are not really paying any attention that is what sinks in. This is the media’s fault and this is why we should disband the CBC.

        I wouldn’t blame the CBC. Wayne and Schuster did a sketch talking about the ignorance and complacency of Canadians in which the one turned to the other and said “Canadians were ignorant and apathetic” to which the second replied: “Oh yeah, well we don’t know and we don’t care.”

        If people were truly concerned, they would take the time to research for themselves. Socrates put it this way:”Only the educated are free” and he did not mean those with college and university degrees, but rather those that took time to investigate and learn. We have been too fat and too lazy for too long.

        And the mandate of the CBC needs to be wiped out. It is a vile and corrupt mouthpiece for the liberal agenda. I don’t spend anytime watching it because I don’t watch TV and any time I have seen or heard what it espouses, I know enough to leave it alone. It is a waste of time and money, just like the Liberal Party of Canada.

        • The CBC is part of the political class, predatory out only for themselves at our expense.

        • Maggat

          Woftam—-waste of fucking time and money

    • So long as the bread and circuses continue…

      When Harper was PM, I asked my sister-in-law the opposite question: What exactly has he done that makes you hate him so much? “Um, ah, welll….”. The MSM is definitely biased and so is her union (nurse).

    Canadians love shiny objects waved in front of them. Oh look, Justin is wearing cool socks today. Oh look, he attends every homosexual parade in Canada! Isn’t he wonderful! And he is making EVERYTHING FREE IN CANADA! What, he helped cause that billion dollar pipeline to the east coast get cancelled No problem, lots of oil in Saudi Arabia. Sing us a song Sophie!

    Annnd all the polls insisted that Reptillary had a 98% chance of winning that election. Polling has become a political tool akin the Phrenology.

      Yes, they can’t be trusted. If the MSM is ridiculously biased, who’s to say that the pollsters aren’t as well? This is aside from the bona fide difficulties involved in obtaining quality data these days (cell phone lists are incomplete; people speaking on their cells tend to pay less attention to questions asked of them than when spoken to in person; the heavy bias of the media toward progressive positions and politicians causes those who do not favor such positions to keep quiet about their feelings, and disguise their attitudes, etc.)

  • I never get polled.

    • k2

      Maybe you should consider relocating to PEI – the small population, combined with the fact that they are a province, causes Statcan to sample a high proportion of residents for their surveys, particularly the Labor Force Survey. You would stand a good chance of sooner or later being picked there.

    Why must I be surrounded by frickin’ idiots?

    • That’s going to happen when you’re the smartest one around. I’ve had to put up with it my entire life. 😉

        We all have our chores in life.

        You should be (sort of) handsome and silly, you could even become a Prime Minister then.

  • Marius K

    That’s what they were saying about Democrats and Hillary.

  • Liberal Progressive

    Thank goodness the CBC is doing what they are paid to do!

  • Guy, guys – beware of ANY poll saying that the Liberals are on top. See if X pollster is some how associated with Trudeau and WHERE the poll was taken.

    Having read comments here, there and everywhere and polls of people appalled by everything PM Imbecile says and does, I refuse to believe that there electoral landslides in the future. Are the Quebeckers happy with the un-French leaking into their province? That’s going to cost.

    Polls nowadays are used to form public opinion, not to determine what it is.

    As George Carlin said:
    “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”

  • J. C.

    And this is why I f***ing despise this country… 🙁

  • Tooth&Claw

    Pffft. Polls. They’re dreaming.

  • Lightstream

    I’ve never seen so many stupid people in a country in my life. I guess all the immigrants and refugees are voting for Trudeau as well.

    I’ve been saying to my friends and relatives (who can’t stand him), that he’ll get elected again and if this poll is correct, it looks like he will. Idiots.
