Liberal Support Among Young Canadians Plummets

Nanos poll shows Liberals support among young Canadians taking a big hit following Trudeau’s meeting with Greta Thunberg.

A new Nanos poll shows the Liberals losing a tonne of support among young Canadians.

The poll follows both the release of the Liberal platform, and Justin Trudeau’s meeting with Greta Thunberg.

Among Canadians age 18-29, Liberals support dropped from 35% to 24.

That support went to the undecided category, and in small numbers to the Conservatives, Greens, and PPC. Jagmeet Singh’s support among young Canadians stayed basically the same.

CTV News also noted that the gap between Trudeau and Scheer’s “best PM” numbers has shrunk significantly:

“Combining all age groups, the gap between Trudeau’s personal popularity and Scheer’s is now the smallest it has been since the campaign began.

Nanos registered support for Trudeau as preferred prime minister as 28.26 per cent, compared to 27.99 per cent for Scheer. Another 18 per cent of voters are undecided on this score.

The two had been nearly six percentage points apart a few days earlier, on Sept. 25.

“As long as the focus continues to be on the Liberals and specifically on Justin Trudeau, it’s just not going to be good for them,” Nanos said.”

The Trudeau Liberals probably thought that having Trudeau march in the ‘climate strike’ and meet with Greta Thunberg would boost his image, but it appears it has instead only served to remind people of Trudeau’s rampant hypocrisy, and the fact that he will say and do literally anything in order to win.
