Andrew Scheer Is Killing the Conservative Brand

Shoulda gone with Mad Max.

This guy was a huge mistake.




6 months of Andrew Scheer

Six months ago, Andrew Scheer became the new leader of the Conservative Party and the head of Her Majesty's Official Opposition.

He took over a party still smarting from the 2015 election defeat, but looking to oust Justin Trudeau's Liberals when Canada next goes to the polls in 2019.

The Saskatchewan MP and former speaker of the House of Commons narrowly beat out Quebec MP Maxime Bernier at the leadership vote in Toronto on May 27, besting him on the 13th and final ballot.

Since the beginning of the year, and continuing under Scheer's leadership, the Conservatives have raised more money than the Liberals. But the party still trails the Liberals in the polls by a wide enough margin that a re-elected Liberal majority is more likely than not.

To assess how Scheer has been doing in his first six months as Conservative leader, Pollcast host Éric Grenier is joined by Tim Powers of Summa Strategies and Chad Rogers of Crestview Strategy, who provided their analysis throughout the long Conservative campaign.

You must look beyond the Party Leader though. Many Canadians vote for the best local candidate; and so the local candidate running will play a role in deciding the outcome too.

Most people look at the leader and vote for the local candidate based on the platform that the leader communicates.

That's why we need to move to proportional representation.

I agree that those who vote that way should move to proportional representation.

The article states the Cons are raising more money than the Libs, yet the thread title says the Cons are being killed. Just another shit thread by Analfloss.

They're getting slaughtered in seats.

And they will continue to lose if they maintain their social conservativism (ie. idiots like you).


Canadian Conservatives are libertarians.

Er... last I checked, what counts is how many people vote for you, not how much money they can give you.

Harper being prime minister for all those years is why Trudeau is prime minster as we speak.

So that pear-shaped loser actually accomplished something.

But you posted the con movement died when it amalgamated with reform, yet Harper won the PM position after that amalgamation.

I suspect that Flossy will throw his support behind anyone that doesn't represent the conservative brand

But they have tie pins, umbrellas and beverage coasters with the trademarked logo.

Canadian Conservatives are libertarians.

There is no election in 2017 so they are not being slaughtered in seats. Just some polls. Like the ones that said Hilary would win.

Don't be daft.

Unlike Americans, we can show the numbers in seats.

There's the odd election out, but most of the time polls are generally on point.
