POLL: Trudeau Liberals Lead Conservatives By 8%

The Conservatives must focus on winning the support of working-class voters.

A new poll by Nanos Research finds the Trudeau Liberals lead the Scheer Conservatives by a margin similar to the 2015 election results.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Liberals – 37.5%
  • Conservatives – 29.3%
  • NDP – 20.2%
  • Bloc – 6.4%
  • Greens – 5.4%

While the Liberals retain a lead, a look at the long-term trends in past Nanos polls show Trudeau and the Liberals steadily losing support. Additionally, supporting Trudeau is constantly pushed by the establishment media as the only acceptable choice, so Trudeau’s numbers may be lower than the media polls show.

That said, the Conservatives clearly have work to do.

While the conventional wisdom is that the Conservatives should seek to simply switch back those who went to the Liberals, it won’t quite be that simple. After all, the Conservatives got nearly as many votes in 2015 as they did in their 2011 win. What changed is the millions more who voted Liberal.

What hasn’t been discussed enough is the importance of winning working-class voters. The Liberals are increasingly the party of the corporate, legal, and banking elites. Those same elites have betrayed working class Canadians with higher taxes and regulations that kill jobs and destroy economic opportunity, while funneling even more money into the elitists’ pockets.

Andrew Scheer is off to a good start by opposing free trade with China, but he and his party will have to go further. The conventional wisdom that just acting more like Trudeau will beat Trudeau is not wise at all. It’s foolish – and it’s exactly what the elites want the Conservatives to think so they don’t start challenging the power structure that dominates Canada.

After all, millions of Canadians have been forgotten, and the working-class of our country has been totally screwed over. Becoming the party of both working-class and middle class Canadians will not only bring in new voters, it will also bring in voters from the NDP. There is more NDP-Conservative crossover vote potential than many think, and the Conservatives would be unwise to ignore that.

While top NDP leadership has abandoned working-class Canadians in favour of following the social justice warrior agenda, the NDP brand still has a residual link to those who used to stand up for Canadian jobs and working class Canadians.

The Conservatives can bring about a big change in the political landscape of our country by making a concerted effort to become the party of working-class Canadians.

With the media and establishment elites supporting him, Trudeau will not be easy to beat. A key part of stopping him and reversing his dangerous elitist agenda will require the building of a strong coalition of working-class and middle class Canadians – giving voice to those who have been forgotten in our country for far too long.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
