POLL: Liberals Lead Conservatives By 12% Points

According to the poll, Trudeau’s approval rating is 28% points ahead of Scheer’s.

A new poll by Abacus Data – which is seen by some as skewed towards the Liberals – puts the Trudeau Liberals ahead of the Scheer Conservatives at the halfway mark of their term in office.

Here are the numbers:

  • Liberals – 43%
  • Conservatives – 31%
  • NDP – 17%
  • Greens – 6%

When it comes to party leader approval ratings, Scheer has a long way to go:

  • Trudeau – 47% approve, 28% disapprove
  • Scheer – 19% approve, 18% disapprove

As a new leader, it’s no surprise that many Canadians have no opinion of Scheer. Yet, the fact that his approval ratings is a full 28% points behind Trudeau (if this poll is correct), while his disapproval rating is just 10% lower than Trudeau is concerning.

Conservatives missing out on potential supporters

The poll also broke down voting intention by where people situated themselves on the political spectrum.

Interestingly, among those who consider themselves to be on the “right,” 22% say they will vote Liberal, while 66% support the Conservatives. This means that nearly a quarter of people who could be part of the Conservative base are planning to vote for the Liberals.

The Liberals also have a big lead among those on the left – 56%, and a smaller lead among those who identify themselves as being in the centre – 43%.

Conservatives should ignore the conventional wisdom

While the “conventional wisdom,” (AKA what the elites want people to do), is for the Conservatives to push the same establishment agenda as the Liberals while calling themselves Conservatives, that won’t give anyone a reason to vote for anything different, and will only benefit the Liberals in the end. It would also further demoralize those who could be enticed to support a change in government.

Remember, the elites just want the Conservatives to be nice and uncontroversial before losing to the Liberals “respectfully.”

Scheer should ignore that advice.

Instead, by aggressively pushing back against Trudeau’s dangerous agenda, and by speaking out strongly in favour of policies that put the interests of Canadians first (including economic nationalism instead of globalism), Scheer can give himself a chance to reach a whole new range of voters and reshape the political spectrum.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.

  1. oh really where did they find people to poll. i have never received any calls from trudeaus news outlets. i wait for the day one of these lying so called politicians call me. lol. this government is very weak, some of them when they are speaking are reading a script. really 12% ahead. for now, i have a hard time believing this poll. hey liberals, call me, and aske me some questions, i am waiting.

  2. Considering Scheer’s number of years in the political arena, that can be considered either very good, or very bad. His experience gives him an advantage in ‘real terms’ of politics — but, at the same time, could also make him dangerous. Who knows, what really goes on between the ears of one in politics? Truth? No one. So, Scheer, with his background could be a benefit to the Canadian political landscape but, at the same time, be a huge detriment. Only time will sort that one out for us. I harken back to a comment I made many years ago in the halls of the House while being ‘educated’ by a sitting M.P. who was happy to advise me that I should be happy to be to be living in a country where we have a political system of three parties to choose from during an election. My comment then, and even now was: “We do not have a three-party system, we have a one-party system with three names. I stand by that comment even today.

  3. Dear Spencer: You should be aware Abacus Polling is an extension of the Liberal Party: “The husband of the prime minister’s director of communications launched a new public affairs advertising firm earlier this month. Perry Tsergas, husband of Kate Purchase, unveiled Spark Advocacy on Dec. 2, which is partnering with the well-known Ottawa GR firm Summa Strategies, communications consultant Bruce Anderson — Purchase’s father — and Abacus pollster David Coletto.” Per iPolitics article.

    Any poll that fails to included the number of “undecided respondents” is a suspect “push poll”.

    Check out Nanos weekly polling: Use the Age filters 18-29 an 30-39 and you’ll see Trudeau’s support is on a downward trend with the younger demographic. In fact, Trudeau’s ‘electoral coalition’ is only holding together with those soon to qualify for age 65 OAS, and females in overall.

    Best news – Canada’s male respondents are equally split between CPC and LPC. I TRIED to post the nanos data link on a G&M commenter-policed blog along with the comment “LPC success in the next election is dependent upon Trudeau’s ‘hair and successor’.” It was never posted which means it was determined by several bloggers to be uncivil. http://www.nanosresearch.com/data

  4. Wouldn’t surprise me if the poll was conducted in liberal ridings with the poll questions directed towards Liberal voters. The media is just another tool to push Globalism/Communism into the destruction of the West.

  5. It just seems to me that pretty much all of these polls are leaning one way or the other politically. Does anyone know of a truly independent poll that doesn’t lean Left or Right? I would love to see how each of the political parties fares on a TRULY unbiased poll!
