According to a new Ipsos poll, if a federal election were held tomorrow, the Conservatives would win.

According to the poll, Justin Trudeau’s poorly handled trip may be the cause of it.

At this moment the Liberals would win 33 per cent of the national popular decided vote if Canadians went to the polls this weekend, while Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives would receive 38 per cent of the same vote and win the election.

The NDP would get 21 per cent support, while the Green Party would get five per cent of the vote.

The poll also found a five-point drop in the approval rating of the government.

A slim majority of 54 per cent now disapproves of the performance of the Liberal government under Trudeau while a minority of 46 per cent approves.

This is startling as it is the first time Ipsos has shown the Trudeau Liberals behind and cements the building narrative that the Liberal party is, in fact, bleeding support.

The government will likely have to change their current media strategy or even their entire platform as the government new budget received at best luke-warm response. What they change it to in order to meet this continued flurry of bad press?

That I’m not sure.

  1. As far as I am concerned Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are totally untrustworthy, arrogant, neglectfull of seniors & veterans and spend nedlessly on BS activity. He was told by Canadians to rein in immigration of refugees who are not self supporting and still he sneaks more in and, he disrespects Christianity and is a very poor communicator. To top it off he behaves like a village idiot. I could go on. In summary he has lied to Canadians and really needs to be a celebrity. We need a Prime Minister not a mindless camera groupy.

  2. The function of press and media in the Democratic society: vetting candidates, asking tough questions, and getting people entering important offices ready for the job. In case of Justin Trudeau, this process was completely abandoned. Instead of asking serious and tough questions, they asked about his shampoo.

  3. The Liberals need to reconsider their broken election promise of serious electoral reform so that every vote counts and Parliament becomes more collaborative for the good of the nation rather than combative for partisan advantage.

  4. The Liberal Government are running amuck at the cost of Canadian taxpayers. This regime needed to be gone long ago! Totally corrupt, totally inept PM, Conflicts upon conflicts. Main Stream Media who aided puppet master in getting elected need to get on board with REAL Canadians and hold him accountable rather than aid and abet him.

  5. This is very true. The mainstream media helped him get elected. NOW they need to report the truth about the terrible job he is doing and give a true report of how he is destroying Canada!
