Decline in support comes amid the WE Scandal.
With the WE Scandal continuing to grow, Justin Trudeau’s recent approval rating bounce (due to the ‘rally around the flag’ effect seen during a crisis), is beginning to fade.
According to a new Angus Reid poll, Trudeau’s approval rating stands at 50%, with 48% disapproving.
In May, Trudeau’s approval rating was 55%, while his disapproval rating was 33%.
We are seeing a large surge in the number of Canadians who disapprove of Trudeau, which shows a return to the pre-CCP Virus trend where Trudeau’s approval declined the longer he was in power.
In terms of the partisan breakdown, Trudeau’s support among Liberals actually rose narrowly, from 90% to 91%.
But among Conservatives and NDP voters, Trudeau’s approval rating declined dramatically.
Conservative approval for Trudeau fell from 17% to 10%, while NDP approval fell from 71% to 62%.
There is a stark gender divide, with just 41% of men approving of Trudeau, while 58% of women approve.
Notably, Canadians who disapprove of Trudeau are much more intense in their opinion than those who approve.
34% say they ‘Strongly Disapprove’ of Trudeau, while just 16% ‘Strongly Approve.’
As a result, it seems increasingly likely that most of Trudeau’s recent increase in support is ‘soft,’ while opposition to him is far stronger and longer lasting.
Concern for economy/deficit rising
The survey shows 38% see the CCP Virus response as a top issue (respondents could pick 3), while 33% say the economy is a top issue. 29% say healthcare is a top issue, while 28% say ‘the deficit/government spending’ is the top issue.
Combined, we have 61% saying the economy and the deficit/government spending are top issues, with more and more Canadians wanting to see a credible plan to strengthen the economy, creating an opening for the Conservatives to present ideas to rebuild our nation.
