Big number of Canadians won’t even consider voting Liberal.
A new Angus Reid poll has some good news for the Conservative Party, and some bad news for the Trudeau Liberals.
While the poll asked a lot of questions, the key number is when it comes to who Canadians are considering voting for.
The results show a much larger number of Canadians willing to consider voting Conservative than are willing to consider voting Liberal.
A full 49% of Canadians say they would “Never” consider voting Liberal. By comparison, 18% are Core Liberals, 22% are Likely Liberals, and 11% say they would “Maybe” vote Liberal.
Broken down, that means 51% of Canadians are open to voting Liberal, while 49% are not.
The numbers for the Conservatives are different.
37% say they would “Never” consider voting Conservative. 28% are Core Conservatives, 20% are Likely Conservatives, and 15% would “Maybe” vote Conservative.
This means 63% of Canadians are willing to consider voting Conservative, while 37% are not.
This 12 point gap between the Conservatives and the Liberals in terms of Canadians willing to vote for them is great news for the Conservative Party.
It gives them more room to gain potential voters, while it limits the Trudeau Liberals potential ceiling of support.
Trudeau came into office with high approval ratings, but has steadily alienated more and more Canadians, to the point in which nearly half the country totally rejects him and won’t even consider voting Liberal.
A consequence of this is that the next election will be one of the most negative of all time. The Liberals will attempt to demonize Conservatives, to drive down the number of Canadians willing to vote for the main Opposition Party.
We can already see this in the increasingly divisive tactics of the Liberals – including their doubling-down on vile identity politics and blaming the Conservatives for everything.
That’s only going to get worse.
