Majority of Canadians want Trudeau gone before the election

A new Ipsos poll found that the majority of Canadians want Trudeau to step down before the next election.

Majority of Canadians want Trudeau gone before the election

According to Ipsos CEO Darrell Bricker, Trudeau has almost officially hit “rock bottom”, with the some of the lowest approval ratings the pollster has ever seen.

“This is as bad as we’ve seen it for Trudeau. It’s close to rock bottom,” he said.

Based on the poll, 68% of Canadians now want Trudeau to step down before the next election, with disapproval of the PM reaching 4 in 5 in Alberta (79%) and 3 in 4 in Atlantic Canada (76%).

According to the poll, Trudeau may also be “dragging the success of his party down with him”, ensuring a Conservative victory instead of opting out and allowing a new Liberal leader to try to change course.

With that said, it’s likely too little too late, as half of Canadians now favour Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre as the next PM.

Liberals desperately trying to ignore the polls

Despite having tried nearly every tactic that’s worked in the past to scapegoat blame or draw attention away from their scandals, Canadians aren’t buying it, and it’s being reflected in the polls.

As noted by Bricker, “What’s worse is that they have thrown everything they can think of at changing this dynamic. Nothing has worked. It’s frozen in solid.”

Thus, the Liberals have opted for a new tactic: total indifference.

Speaking to CBC News earlier this week, when asked about whether he thought he was leading his own party to failure, Trudeau said that it doesn’t matter because Canadians “are not in decision mode” yet.

“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.”

This stance was then parroted by Liberal MP Anita Anand yesterday, with Anand saying, “We’re not focused on the polls. We’re focused on the fact that we need to continue to put forward dental care, pharmacare, housing supports, supports for families and students.”

Liberal MP Steve MacKinnon said more or less the same thing thereafter, adding that Canadians will come to appreciate the “transformative things” the Liberals have managed to achieve.
