Trudeau now has a lower approval rating than Trump, with Tories way ahead: Ipsos poll

It's gotta be because of Putin, why else?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appears to have suffered more damage from the SNC-Lavalin scandal than U.S. President Donald Trump has from the Russia investigation, hush money payments to a porn star, alleged campaign finance violations, threats of impeachment proceedings and the litany of new investigations launched by Democrats.
That’s according to a new Ipsos poll, conducted exclusively for Global News, which found that Trudeau’s approval rating (40 per cent) has now slipped below Trump’s (43 per cent), even as the Conservative Party established a double-digit lead over the Liberals.
The Liberal government’s federal budget did little to quell the damage, the poll found, with most Canadians indifferent about it and only a small minority impressed by Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s offerings.
The Conservatives are now sitting pretty in crucial provinces Ontario and British Columbia, with Trudeau managing to fall behind among two of the key demographics that swept him to victory in 2015, women and young people.
If an election were held tomorrow, the Conservatives would receive 40 per cent of the vote among decided voters, according to the poll of 1,002 Canadians conducted between March 25 and 27.
That’s unchanged since Ipsos’ last poll on March 4.
“Whatever this SNC-Lavalin thing is, it seems to have settled in. We’re creating a new normal in which the Conservatives are consistently ahead of the Liberal Party,” said Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs.
“People in Ottawa can say what they want about the significance of the scandal — ‘there’s no sex, there’s no money, what is this all about?’
“But Canadians are sitting back and saying this has really caused them to reconsider supporting a combination of this prime minister and this Liberal government.”
The province-by-province breakdown makes for worrying reading for the Liberals.
In seat-rich Ontario, the Conservatives (40 per cent) have opened up a 12-point lead over the Liberals, who are tied with the NDP at 28 per cent.
The Tories also enjoy a double-digit lead in British Columbia, where the Liberals and NDP are in a scrap for second place.
Alberta looks to be a foregone conclusion, with the Conservatives (63 per cent) light-years ahead of the Liberals (17 per cent) and NDP (15 per cent).
“When you take a look at where the Conservatives are leading, they’re now leading everywhere you need to lead,” Bricker said. “They really don’t need anything else to beat the Liberals.”
Indeed, the only province in which the Liberals are in pole position is Quebec, where they have the support of 38 per cent of respondents.
However, the Conservatives (25 per cent) and Bloc Quebecois (23 per cent) appear to have enough strength to prevent the Liberals from truly taking advantage of their Quebec share as they did in 2015.
The NDP, with only 12 per cent of the vote support, is poised to lose most if not all of its seats in Quebec. But it’s not the Liberals who stand to gain from Quebecers deserting the NDP, Bricker said.
“These are not people who are Liberal-NDP switchers. These are probably Bloc Quebecois voters who couldn’t vote Bloc last time because of all the problems they were having, combined with people who voted for the Coalition Avenir Quebec,” Bricker said.
Compounding the Liberals’ misery is the fact that their leader is now bleeding support among some of the core constituencies that helped sweep him to power in 2015.
Forty per cent of women now say they would vote Conservative, compared to just 28 per cent for the Liberals (the Tories enjoy a similar lead among men).
Among younger voters aged 18 to 34, the Conservatives (34 per cent) hold a slight lead over the Liberals (31 per cent).
The only key subset among which the Liberals lead is the university-educated, with 44 per cent approval compared to 30 per cent for Conservatives.
“What’s happened is that the brand that Trudeau had — he had a strong appeal among young people, and there was a gender gap that worked in his favour — all seems to be gone,” Bricker said.
Indeed, Trudeau’s individual approval rating as prime minister now sits at 40 per cent, three points lower than that of Trump in the U.S.
“In spite of all the issues that they’ve had to deal with in the United States, the likelihood that the president of the United States will get re-elected is higher right now than the prime minister [of Canada] being re-elected,” Bricker said.
Trudeau’s 40 per cent rating is also lower than that of former prime minister Stephen Harper at this stage in 2015, with Harper having a 47 per cent rating in April 2015.

What about Kim Campbell

If Scheer was elected PM (lol) he would be the least educated man in that office born after 1850.

I mean a climate change denier? In 2019?

Kim took over within the term before election, the only one close I would say is Joe Clark, but he was set up by PET, by reversing his support on the budget.

Ah yes, not going along with a 32% "consensus" is the epitome of being uneducated. Meanwhile you think (pardon the exaggeration) emotional relativism is the height of intellectual thought. It's 2019 buddy, quit letting your emotions rule you. We were given the gift of logic and reasoning, emotions are irrational.

Canadians believe in climate change.

Canadians believe in reproductive rights
Canadians believe in reconciliation
Canadians believe in immigration
Canadians believe in the basic goodness and equality of all people.

If someone does not believe in those things why should they be elected as the leader?

Belief...

Canadians know climate is in perpetual flux.

Canadians know reconciliation is a political ploy that is backfiring miserably.

Canadians know vetted, educated, cohesive immigration is invaluable and don't accept an open door, come as your are no questions asked immigration policy spread on Twitter.

Canadians know goodness and morals are the basis of our highly successful society.

Why do you only believe, do you have doubts?

Nobody is denying climate change. They're denying the ALT-left's reason for it. Well, more accurately they're questioning just how much of it we are actually responsible for.

ALT-left retards fail to understand that with rights come personal responsibility!

Yeah, somehow I get the impression that it's not real important to the millions of migrants and refugees who've arrived here over the last 20-30 years. By the way, anyone ask the FN if it was cool to continually increase immigration to here or is this another case where Whitey presumes to speak and act of behalf of the FN?

Yep, and a clear majority believe in proper immigration controls and border sovereignty as well. "Oddly" enough, a number of them are legal immigrants themselves. Believe it or not, you CAN have immigration with both. We did until the early 90's.

Maybe the ALT-left WANTS to believe in the basic goodness of all people but those who are firmly grounded in reality know f*cking better. Any goodness in Hitler? How about Stalin? Mao? Pol Pot? The Japanese militarists during WW2? What about those who supported them, any goodness there? And as for equality? The ALT-left pays lip service to things like feminsim. We've seen these so-called "feminists" in action when they come across a woman who can think for herself and have her own opinions. And how is any system "fair" when it rewards you based on gender/race/ whatever instead of ability, just to meet some kind of artificial quota?

Now you're preaching beliefs? This isn't religion. And like or not, you can't legislate feelings. Well you can but anyone with an shred of common sense does NOT want to go there.

But you also sound like the typical ALT-left jackass. Always assuming the majority is behind you. You remind me of Horwath in Ontario. After the provincial election she actually stated that the result showed that Ontarians wanted an NDP govt. The Conservatives took just shy of twice as many seats as the NDP and Horwath "believes" that's a clear indication that Ontarians wanted an NDP govt.

Some people just can't accept reality. You ALT-left idiots outright refuse delivery of it.

Belief and fact are not the same thing sunshine. There are also about 5000 different versions of gawd out there that some people believe in. Belief does not make it fact.

Smart Canadians know you can’t change the weather .
Smart Canadians know women bear children .
Smart Canadians understand the Indian act is garbage and mostly benefits Native leadership and Ottawant lawyers .
Smart Canadians understand the difference between an illegal border jumper and a legitimate immigrant .
Smart Canadians understand that a leader should be out front showing the way not in the rear following the herd .
