Election: Trudeau thinks Canadians are “not in decision mode” yet

When asked about outright hatred towards him in the context of the next election, Trudeau said he’s not worried about it because people aren’t really in decision mode yet.

Election: Trudeau thinks Canadians are “not in decision mode” yet

Speaking to Canada’s state broadcaster, Trudeau was asked if the reason the Liberals are polling so badly is due to his leadership and the anger Canadians feel towards him specifically.

“What if you are the reason the Liberals can’t beat the Conservatives in the next election? Where do you factor that into your thought process?” host David Cochrane asked Trudeau.

“I think, first of all, Canadians are not in a decision mode right now,” Trudeau said. “What you tell a pollster, if they ever manage to reach you, is very different from the choice Canadians end up making in an election campaign.”

Trudeau then stated that things are bad everywhere but that Canadians are doing better given the global situation. He added that he plans to “step up on solving those challenges” and believes that “Canadians are pragmatic people who focus on solutions.”

Liberals set for record loss largely due to economic mismanagement

While Trudeau says Canadians aren’t in decision mode yet, most polls disagree. Moreover, overwhelmingly, they all say Canadians want a change in government, with Conservatives viewed as more capable of handling the issues (mostly economic) that Canadians are worried about.

According to a recently published Abacus poll, Canadians rate the rising cost of living, housing affordability and accessibility, healthcare, the general economy, and immigration being too high as their top 5 issues.

And on all of these issues besides healthcare, which is tied between Liberals and Conservatives, Canadians believe the Conservatives are more capable of handling them by a large margin.

For this and a whole host of other reasons, including foreign interference claims and corruption scandals, polls have found that the Liberals are over 99% likely to lose the next election, losing over half their MPs in the process.

By all accounts, Canadians seem ready to make a decision, and they know what decision they’ll make.
