Just 29% think Moneybags Morneau should stay on the job.
Finance Minister Bill Moneybags Morneau has a serious popularity problem.
A new Nanos Research poll reveals that a plurality of Canadians think he should be out of office and replaced.
Here are the results when Canadians were asked if Morneau should stay as Finance Minister, or whether it was time for a new Finance Minister:
- Time for new Finance Minister – 40%
- Morneau should stay – 29%
- Unsure – 31%
These are bad numbers for Morneau and for the Trudeau government.
Considering the importance of the Finance Minister role, if Canadians lose trust there, trust in the entire government fades away. And since Trudeau seems far too weak and too arrogant to get rid of Morneau, it would be left to Morneau to resign. Of course, that also seems unlikely, since he’s just as arrogant as Justin.
A key reason for Morneau’s terrible poll numbers is the ongoing issue of his refusal to put his assets in a blind trust, setting up serious potential conflicts of interest. As a result, Morneau is now under an ethics investigation.
With Morneau already being so connected to the elites, he needed to go out of his way to show that he was working on behalf of Canadians. Instead, he is only working for people like himself and Justin Trudeau, trust fund elitists who have no idea what it’s like to be in the middle class, and couldn’t care less about helping real Canadians.
