Andrew Scheer Should Start Tweeting Like A Real Person

With the polls narrowing and the media against him, it’s time for Scheer to take some risks.

Despite Justin Trudeau’s deep unpopularity, the polls for the upcoming federal election are narrowing. The key problem for the Conservatives is that – as many of us predicted – the establishment press are turning against the Conservative Leader, assisting in the despicable Liberal demonization campaign.

Unfortunately, in the face of the intense media opposition, Andrew Scheer is still using a communication strategy that seems lifted from the 2015 election.

His Twitter feed mostly looks like it’s run by a staffer, with the same rhetoric and talking points being used as are seen in Conservative ads. While there’s something to be said for a unified message, Scheer is missing an opportunity to connect with people like a real human being.

Currently, Scheer’s Twitter feed looks far more like the official Conservative Party account, rather than his own personal opportunity to communicate directly with voters.

The Conservatives are obviously risk-averse, seeking to maintain their current support and hope that Trudeau’s unpopularity is enough. But, if the media keeps giving a boost to the Liberals, and keeps attacking Scheer, then the old-fashioned, risk-averse strategy won’t work.

Scheer needs to risk being somewhat controversial, if only to take some control over the information battle. After all, while the media may be biased against the Conservatives, they are even more biased in favour of making money, and if they think Scheer can drive coverage and get clicks and ratings, they’ll help share his message – even inadvertently.

Andrew Scheer is a smart guy who knows a lot about politics and policy, and he would really benefit from taking control of his phone and Tweeting his real thoughts like a real person, bypassing the media filter and making a real connection with Canadians.

You are so correct, because this bought out media will just keep demonizing Conservatives. Doug Ford really insulted the media during his campaign by not even supplying them with a bus he put everything right on line so he would not be misquoted and lied about Filmed and recorded everything themselves. The Conservatives have to get better at getting the truth out there, but most of our media is now fake and repulsive lies with our tax money for these lefty/righty country destroyers, you know unethical “smile in your face while stabbing you in the back people” LIEberal foreign post… Read more »

It’s a good suggestion for Scheer to start taking chances and be like Trudeau, but the downside is the public really doesn’t want to hear or see another Trudeau, especially from the Conservatives. Also, since Trudeau’s credibility is shrinking faster than an icecube on a hot summer’s day, it would also diminish Scheers credibility, while maybe gaining some votes. The public demands real honest , open and trustworthy leadership, not a leadership built upon vote getting tweets. Scheer has managed to narrow the hughe lead Trudeau and his Liberals had to the point Trudeau is now extremely desperate and has… Read more »

I need to know from Mr. Sheer if he is going to or even can, get out of the UN’s control.

Scheer needs to grow a pair and stop being afraid of Lieberal news reporters who are simply agents of the Lieberal party. Scheer is so afraid of being called “racist” that he won’t talk to the The Rebel. This October, vote for a patriotic man, vote PPC.
