According to a new Angus Reid poll, only 8% of Canadians strongly approve of Justin Trudeau, while 41% strongly disapprove of him as Prime Minister.
Overall, the Angus Reid Institute found that 59% of Canadians polled moderately/strongly disapproved of Trudeau, while only 38% showed any approval for his job as Prime Minister. Three per cent said they weren’t sure.
“Economically, the country is in dire straits. Inflation is at its highest level in 39 years, and Canadians are feeling the financial pressure. Approaching half (45%) say their finances are worse off than they were a year ago, while one-third are looking to the future and seeing no relief,” Angus Reid writes.
Indeed, an IPSOS poll shows that 63 per cent of those aged 18-34 and 67 per cent of those aged 34-55 express concern that they won’t be able or will struggle to feed their families due to overwhelming inflation, while a Statistics Canada report shows that 1-in-5 Canadians are likely to rely on food banks this year.
It turns out that bad economic policy and mass money printing have real consequences for the average person.
Besides inflation, the Liberal Party has been rocked by several scandals under Trudeau, and many MPs have, under the protection of anonymity, said that most of the Party oppose Trudeau’s position on vaccine mandates and travel restrictions.
“The massive majority of Liberal MPs want the mandates to end,” said one Liberal MP.
“People are saying ‘What the hell, why are [unvaccinated] people not allowed to fly domestic, you know, like, at least let them fly domestic with masks on. You can go into a shopping mall with them; you can go into an elevator with them; you can go into a movie theatre with them.”
It should also be noted that Trudeau’s disapproval rating is similar to that of former PM Stephen Harper’s during his last year in office, with the latter’s overall disapproval rating rising to 62 per cent.
Whether for reasons related to freedom or economics, it could be that Trudeau is on his last legs as Prime Minister, and it’s far less certain whether he’d be able to survive another election in the near future.
