Why does Trudeau think that attacking someone more popular than him is somehow a good idea?
With Canadians having turned against his agenda and his corrupt government, Justin Trudeau is doubling down on negativity and fear.
And he’s going back to his old standby: Attacking Stephen Harper.
There’s a big problem for Trudeau in those attacks however.
It turns out, Stephen Harper was more popular at this same point in his tenure as PM than Trudeau is.
As recorded by Angus Reid, Justin Trudeau’s approval rating is at 28%. Trudeau has been in office for about 42 months.
When Harper had been in power for 42 months, he had a 34% approval rating.
In fact, Trudeau’s numbers in the last 10 months have put him below where Harper was at that time.
So, Justin Trudeau is attacking someone who was more popular than he was.
Trudeau’s disapproval rating is also a stunning 67%, far above where Harper’s was at a similar time.
This raises serious doubts about Trudeau’s ‘attack Harper’ strategy, and the fact that all he has left is desperate attacks on his predecessor only goes to show how badly Trudeau has failed.
