Trudeau’s approval has fallen dramatically from this time last year.
Justin Trudeau’s approval rating has crashed down to 35%, a big change from December of 2017 when it was at 46%.
According to a new Angus Reid poll, 58% now disapprove of Trudeau. Last year at this time, 49% disapproved.
Trudeau has lost support across the board, even among what was previously his strongest base of supporters – young people.
Among Canadians age 18-34, Trudeau’s approval has fallen from 56% to 42%.
The trend in Trudeau’s disapproval is unmistakable. Here’s how many disapproved of him every December since 2015:
2015 – 29% disapproval
2016 – 41% disapproval
2017 – 49% disapproval
2018 – 58% disapproval
Clearly, the more Canadians see Trudeau in office, the more they dislike him.
The intensity of approval/disapproval is also bad news for Trudeau.
Just 8% of Canadians “strongly approve” of him, while 39% of Canadians “strongly disapprove” of him.
Trudeau’s approval rating has fallen in every province. Here are the provincial breakdowns:
BC – 38% approval
Alberta – 18% approval
Saskatchewan – 20% approval
Manitoba – 37% approval
Ontario – 42% approval
Quebec – 30% approval
Atlantic Canada – 44% approval
In every province, more people disapprove of Trudeau than approve of him.
Notably, Canadians pick the budget deficit / government spending as the top issue in the country, an area where Trudeau is very vulnerable due to his repeated broken promises.
This is good news for the Conservatives, but there is still more work to do. At 35%, Trudeau still has enough support to be competitive in an election, and with media propaganda backing him up, all he would need to do is push that number a bit higher to potentially win another majority government.
So, the Conservatives need to keep going after the Trudeau Liberals, and independent media needs to keep exposing the actions of the government. Nothing can be taken for granted.
