New Poll Shows Liberals With Massive Lead, Conservative Party Trails By Nearly 20 Points

Conservative support down almost 10 points from 2019 election results.

A new survey shows the Liberals with a massive lead in polling intentions.

According to Leger (a pollster that was quite accurate in the previous election), the Liberals have the support of 44% of respondents.

25% support the Conservatives, 15% support the NDP, 7% support the Bloc, and 7% support the Greens.

While support for the NDP, Bloc, and Greens is all close to their 2019 election results, Conservative support has tanked.

The Conservatives are down 9 points from their 2019 election results, while the Liberals are up 11 points.

The nearly 20-point gap is clearly due in part to the ‘rally round the flag’ effect often seen in crisis, as people want to support the leader of their nation during a dangerous moment.

Some of the lead is also attributable to media bias, which has allowed the Liberals to get much of a free pass on some of their huge mistakes (like keeping the border open and failing to impose tough screening at airports).

However, the Conservatives are also struggling to find a message that resonates with Canadians. After voting for the economic package to help Canadians, the Conservatives have been trying to figure out how to criticize aspects of the delivery, and the polls show their message is falling flat.

Rather than focus on issues like the horribly disturbing decision by the Liberals to have Canada partner with China’s military on a vaccine (even writing that sounds insane) the Conservatives have focused more and more rhetoric on the CERB program, allowing Trudeau to position himself as getting money in the hands of Canadians fast.

The party is also in the midst of a leadership race, so the opportunity to present a more focused message isn’t there.

As I noted on Twitter, given the worldwide scale of the health crisis and economic crisis, many voters are going to be thinking similar to how people felt during World War Two, and will not be focused on the budget deficit and the debt right now, meaning the Conservatives will need to focus on directly helping Canadians and making our country more self-reliant, rather than endless deficit talk:

“Just like people accepted huge budget deficits in WW2, people won’t turf the Liberals for big deficits now. Campaigning on that will be a loser for the Conservatives. Instead, they should campaign on huge tax cuts for low/middle-income People, & bringing our supply chains home.”

“By contrast, a focus on the debt and deficit right now will let the Liberals play the old ‘what will you cut’ game, and let the Liberals campaign as the ones ‘putting money in your pocket,’ which is a battle they would win right now.”

“A message of providing support to Canadians in need, reducing the tax burden on low income and middle class people, and a pro-Working Class agenda to bring our critical supply chains back within our country will win wide backing across the country.”

“At this point, getting to a balanced budget means we need big time economic growth, and that won’t happen while Canada is so vulnerable and reliant on foreign nations like we are now. We need a much stronger local/domestic economy.”

The Conservatives lost their way with Scheer, his pathetic campaign team, and the Party upper echelon. The fact that Scheer has stepped down as Party leader but is still their spokesman shows how bad things are. No interim leader? Really? The Liberals will win the next election, likely with a majority. It could possibly be the last democratic election in the history of Canada as Trudeau consolidates even more Media control, political power and financial mismanagement. I no longer have much confidence in this country. The best years are behind us, gone forever. Trudeau seriously feels his destiny is to… Read more »

The conservative party has Five problems
1. No real leadership
2, No statesmen or statespersons
3. No problem with Trudeau controlling the media
4. No vision for free speach in Canada
5. No problem with supporting Trudeau

Canadians voters are idiots.

It is no surprise considering the cash handouts that have been given. The Canadian people have “sold their soul to the devil”to this “Blackface” and millennial minions”. He is a joke to the rest of the world leaders and the Canadians cannot see it because of the propaganda printed out in his main stream media. Take a poll in a few months when the “cupboard bare” and there is no industry, specifically the oil and gas, paying the bills. Can’t wait till next month to see this “clown”and his reaction if he doesn’t get his beloved, useless UN seat. God help… Read more »

Conservatives are not conservative. Weak liberals at the top of the party. Control over their leadership race is going to break the party. They are trying to be liberal and remove anyone who has conservative values. I know I will not vote for them anymore and had always been Conservative. Wouldn’t vote at all rather than put either liberal or weak liberal. Not much of a choice. Only other alternative is the PPC and if they have a candidate in my area I would go with them. You can’t go farther away from democratic system than the two major parties… Read more »

Anything that the liberals touch becomes poisonous. I doubt the polls are not without their bias and have been corrupted. Not even an election that gave them the minority government has probably been fixed. No one with any stamina or conviction has questioned the result. Sheer does a lot of talking but the Conservative party has no conservative values and would not question those results. The politicians have failed this country. The seem to forget that we pay them. It also seems that the people of Canada have forgotten this as well.

It is really hard to believe that 44% of Canadians actually support a liar, a hypocrite and a globalist puppet and his equally brainwashed cabal.

Separation for the West is creeping ever closer . There is not one liberal candidate even remotely concerned about western representation . Fair and equatable representation will not happen until the Western Provinces make it happen for themselves and their financial / political futures .

This “NEWS” about Johnson is turning green with mold.

How many western Canadians were asked for their opinion in this poll. I know how polls are taken – the person asking the questions always calls the people who are willing to answer the way they want them to. It is not random. I would like to see a poll taken in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and then compare it to the polls taken in Ontario and Quebec. That might be more accurate.
