The NDP went from winning about 30% of the vote in Chicoutimi-Le Fjord in 2015, to getting just 8.7% in the recent byelection.
Jagmeet Singh’s struggles as NDP Leader continue.
Singh has faced tough questions since taking over the NDP, and his longtime refusal to denounce the Khalistani movement – and his long delayed condemnation of Khalistani terrorism – caused severe doubts among many Canadians.
His party has struggled to raise money, struggled in the polls, struggled to get attention, and struggled to appear as a credible governing party.
They also went through a serious of scandals, where Singh quickly booted a male MP facing accusations of inappropriate behaviour – saying all “survivors” should be believed, and then chose not to remove a female MP who was accused of inappropriate behaviour – with his “survivors” rhetoric taking a convenient break.
In fact, Singh often only seems to appear in the media when discussing scandals involving his party, which associates him with negative things in the minds of Canadians.
And now, Singh is struggling to explain another negative thing: His party getting decimated in the Chicoutimi-Le Fjord byelection in Quebec.
The NDP went from about 30% in 2015, to just 8.7% in the byelection. They have also fallen in the polls overall in Quebec, as Singh is clearly not resonating with Quebec residents. Looks like the “Orange Crush” Jack Layton led in Quebec is long gone.
It seems Canadians aren’t buying into Singh’s woke socialist radical left hipster shtick.
