FLASH POLL: Andrew Scheer Wins First Leaders Debate

Early response online is good news for Conservative Party as Trudeau chickens out of debate and Scheer performs well.

The early results are in following the first Leaders debate, and it’s good news for the Conservative Leader.

A flash poll on Twitter shows Scheer being overwhelmingly declared the winner of the first leaders debate:

Who is winning the first leaders debate?

4% Jagmeet Singh

4% Elizabeth May

92% Andrew Scheer


1,000 people voted in the Twitter poll.

Scheer is also getting good marks (as of this being written), in polls shared by Macleans – who hosted the first debate.

In matchups between Scheer and Singh, and Scheer and May, Scheer was voted the winner in both:

You may not be able to see the results of the Macleans poll until you vote. Currently, Scheer leads Singh 58-42 when asked about how they performed on the question of steel jobs, and Scheer leads May on the question of China policy 65-35.

We can expect further surveys soon, but this is a good start for Scheer, and a sign that many approved of his performance in his first debate as a party leader.

bernier would have easily destroyed scheer , its sad we live in a tyrannical dictatorship


I am so proud of you, I could not have keep a straight face like you did and still speak honestly and with such common sense and truth between those two lying programmed radicals/You must be the next PM for sure, all the other Parties would really embarrass Canada on the world stage and really make us cringe at home here in Canada. Make Canada proud again. Thank you so much.


That has to be one of the worst debates I’ve ever seen. The moderator let people interrupt and talk over each other repeatedly. May was the worst for that. While I thought Scheer did fine in what I do manage to see, he needs to point out repeatedly how ridiculous May and Singh are when it comes to their climate change plans and how it will cost billions to redesign every building in Canada not to mention private homes. Trillions probably. It’s insane, and Scheer needs to say so. And the people on the panels were saying how great May… Read more »

So, there were two parties missing from the debate. What a bunch of sleaze balls, denying Max a place in the debates.

Margaret Smith

What am I missing? Can someone please tell me why our Prime Minister did not attend the debates? Was he busy, was he sick, does he not care that people take notice of these things.


he is a slime ball of the most evidential nature


All three of them are losers! If Canadians think that Andrew Scheer is going to do anything different than Trudeau, then they’re brain-dead!


no leader has the capability of catering to EVERY CRYING BABY s request …Scheer is the ONLY one that has the spontaneous and obvious well founded reasons for conservative decision and emits them with a view to assisting Canada

Beverley Campbell

Well, I watched MOST of the debate, Elizabeth May is an interesting character, somewhat lacking in dignity but no one can fault her sincerity, except that you completely tune out when she suggests things like SNC Lavalin equipping all Indian Reserves with clean water, as a punishment. NO please. That is a Canadian Government matter. Mr. Singh in my opinion aquitted himself well as a clear speaker and fairly dignified man, if it matters. My winner both going in and coming out was Andrew Scheer but I would like him to be a little more forceful and a little less… Read more »

scheer did not win… he still can’t answer questions. Where is Bernier in all this. Why are the liberals who put on this show afraid of the PPC. i understand why Trudeau did not show up…he has crippled this country.

Chaz Martel

Watched the entire debate, sans Trudeau. Scheer did an acceptable job. He did what he had to do. Calm, collected, focused, articulate and Prime Ministerial in a way Trudeau never could be. He could have been a tad more aggressive with the obnoxious Jagmeet Singh, but otherwise it went well for Andrew I thought.

Jenny Hill

Not saying much, considering.


Just remember how Andrew Scheer and the CPC fixed there own leadership vote so how can you trust a party that will fix its own leadership vote

Elizabeth Thorne

What debate? To hell with Trudeau and his lies, where was Max Bernier? Ask your Candidate in your riding if their leader supports the Global migration pact, where they stand on Globalism, the Paris accord, and have they read the Qur’an.
