Senategate: Most Canadians Believe Stephen Harper is Lying
As we all know Stephen Harper has a lot of other problems to worry about.
The economy is tanking, and so are his polls.
And as we know he has other fish to fry...
But he should also worry about his drowning credibility.
Because when it comes to the Senate scandal most Canadians think he's lying.
The vast majority of Canadians do not believe Stephen Harper is telling the truth about the Mike Duffy Senate expenses scandal, a new poll has found. Some 56 per cent of respondents do not think Harper has come clean about a controversy that is dominating news coverage in the federal election campaign, according to the Forum Research survey.
If he thought Canadians didn't care, he's dead wrong.
Forum found 68 per cent of respondents have been following the court proceedings with 32 per cent saying they have not. Of those who are paying attention to the trial, 68 per cent believe Harper knew Wright gave Duffy the money with 21 per cent saying they feel he did not and 11 per cent unsure.
And it could have a real impact on his chances of being re-elected.
The poll suggests the Duffy trial is not helping the Conservatives’ electoral prospects, with 44 per cent saying it is “very damaging” and 29 per cent saying it is “somewhat damaging.” That means 73 per cent view the issue as a potential liability.
As well as the size of his nose...
For if Canadians think he's lying about the Senate scandal, why should they believe what he says about ANYTHING?
Which must be driving him over the deep end.
Wait. Is that the sound of a loon?
Or the sound of a desperate Harper?
He thought he could lie his way out of a scandal.
He thought he could change the subject.
But the predator could not be saved.
A liar is a liar, is a liar.
And the scandal will pursue him and beat him up all the way to the next election...
