POLL: Trudeau Gets Approval Bump After G7 Dispute

Angus Reid poll shows Trudeau’s approval rating up 12 points.

As many had predicted, Justin Trudeau has received a bump in his approval rating following his trade fight with Donald Trump.

The dispute had led to political figures from across the political spectrum offering supportive words to Trudeau, and it would have been surprising if his numbers hadn’t temporarily increased. Fighting with the US generally boosts the poll numbers of Canadian politicians, at least in the short-term.

According to the Angus Reid survey, Trudeau’s approval rating went from 40% to 52%, while his disapproval went from 56% to 41%. This reverses the trend of Trudeau’s support over the past two years, which had seen his approval falling consistently while his disapproval rating rose.

The poll shows a shift in those who say it’s time for a change in government. Previously, 51% said it’s time for a change, while 28% said it wasn’t. Now, 41% say it’s time for a change, while 36% say its not.

Conservative support tumbles

The poll also showed the Conservatives losing lots of support. In the previous Angus Reid poll, the Conservatives had a 10 point lead over Trudeau.

Now, they trail by four points.

The Conservatives fell from 40% to 32%, while the Liberals went from 30% to 36%. The NDP fell again, going from 19% to 16%.

Only time will tell how long this Trudeau poll bump lasts, but you can bet they Liberals will do everything they can to keep the fight going in order to gain a political advantage – even as evidence emerges that they may be misleading Canadians about what’s really going on.

Not to worry, there’s still plenty of time for Justin to make several more gaffes that will eventually lead to his downfall.

Why am I not surprised at this: “How to retain the dairy quotas needed for the Quebec vote in the face of U.S. pressure? How to reverse his sagging popularity among Canadians on the whole as the economy fades? The answer is a no-brainer: Declare war on Canada’s Public Enemy Number One — Donald J. Trump.”

I agree this will be his main election platform. So many people have been brainwashed by the leftwing media like the CBC so that one gets a knee-jerk virtue-signalling anti-Trump response by the mere mention of Trump’s name.

In the end Trump wins as jihadi trudeau continues to push canadian jobs into the arms of Trump. Why did cpc supported Trudeau on this is beyond me, then why aren’t they in unity with Trudeau when he refused to apologize to India that ended up India putting very high tariffs on our chickpeas and lentils. These two parties attack Trump but not other countries that are doing the same thing to canada. Had Trump been a democrat, doing exactly what he is doing right now, will jihadi justin stand against him like he didn’t do to obama when Obama… Read more »

Trump is correct in stating that Trudeau, the Liberals and Canada in general is a security threat. It definitely has been since the last election and possibly earlier. THis is a long read but full of information we need. It explains a lot about why things are deteriorating in Canada.
