POLL: Liberal Support Among Indigenous Canadians Has Collapsed, Conservatives Now Lead

It’s been cut in half since 2015.

The Conservatives now lead among Indigenous voters, a stark contrast from the 2015 campaign.

According an Environics poll, Liberal support among Indigenous Canadians has plummeted from 41% to 21%.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives have 26%, the NDP have 17%, and the Greens have 16%.

Notably, the Conservatives are up from 15% support in the last election.

The poll was conducted before Trudeau’s blackface debacle, meaning the numbers for the Liberals could be even lower.

As reported by APTN, “Those surveyed placed their change of heart squarely on the shoulders of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau. “Indigenous peoples are twice as likely to disapprove as approve of him. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is also unpopular.”

Trudeau’s approval is at 29% among Indigenous Canadians, while 59% disapprove.

Scheer’s approval is lower at 25%, but his disapproval is also lower at 44%, leaving him room to grow.

Jagmeet Singh has a positive approval rating, with 29% approving and 26% disapproving, while nearly half of respondents (45%) say they “don’t know enough to say” their opinion of the NDP Leader.

Elizabeth May has the best numbers among Indigenous Canadians, with 35% approving, 19% disapproving, and 46% saying they don’t know. However, that doesn’t appear to be translating to widespread support for her party.

On the question of best choice for PM, Scheer narrowly leads Trudeau, with 29% picking the Conservative Leader, 26% picking Trudeau, 24% picking Elizabeth May, and 19% picking Jagmeet Singh.

There is widespread pessimism among Indigenous Canadians according the poll, with just 30% saying now is a good time to “buy things you want and need,” while 70% say now is a “bad time” to buy.

63% agree with the statement, “my household is struggling to make ends meet.”

This collapse in support for the Liberals among Indigenous Canadians is another clear indictment of Justin Trudeau’s failed leadership. Trudeau may know all the right words to say, but his actions never match up, and more and more people are realizing it.

And even his words are now suspect, with his total contempt and arrogance towards Grassy Narrows advocates who he arrogantly dismissed by saying “Thanks for your donation” at a swanky Liberal fundraiser.

The arrogant elitist has to go.
