Why Did Andrew Scheer's Popularity Take Such A Dive?

Andrew Scheer is still claiming that his "positive message" is working, and that more and more Canadians want him to be prime minister.

But sadly for him, he's either terribly wrong, or lying. Again.

For he has no positive message, just the same old Rebel-style attack ads aimed at Justin Trudeau, brought to us by his ex-Rebel campaign manager Hamish Marshall. 

And as for Scheer's popularity, according to the latest Nanos poll, it's STILL tanking. 

The latest Nanos federal ballot tracking has the Liberals at 39.6 per cent support, followed by the Conservatives at 28.1 per cent, the NDP at 19.3 percent, the BQ at 1.9 per cent, the Greens at 6.9 per cent and the newly formed People’s Party of Canada (PPC) at 1.2 per cent.

Nanos tracking has Trudeau as the preferred choice as PM at 41.2 per cent of Canadians followed by Scheer (20.3%), Singh (8.2%), May (6.3%) and Bernier (2.4%). Twenty per cent of Canadians were unsure whom they preferred.

And since those Nanos numbers have been holding steady for some time, I thought I'd try to find out what could have caused Scheer's popularity to plunge.

By using the Nanos Ballot Tracker to find out exactly when that happened. 

Which turned out to be around the beginning of August.

And what happened at that time that might have made him and his Cons so unpopular?

Well, first his hate mongering Rebel elves turned this picture of a father and his family heading for a border checkpoint...

Into this monstrous racist attack ad...

Where the weary father is now a big black single man going for a hole in the fence, and the Cons would like you to believe, coming for you and your family.

And then, as if that wasn't bad or disgusting enough, a few days later Saudi Arabia declared war on Canada.

And Scheer appeared to side with the Saudis rather than the our government...

And since we now know a lot more about the Saudis, and how they like to murder their opponents, and chop them into little bits, Scheer's position, or non position, seems even more depraved.

And I think that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Canadians it seem don't like racists, and traitors.

They prefer their prime ministers to be Canadian...

With Canadian, not American values.

And if Scheer doesn't change course quickly.

If he can, which I doubt.

I predict he's heading for a fiery landing....


  1. I do not trust polls. However if it makes weak andy pee his pants I will make an exception.

    1. Hi Steve...yes it’s true that one must be careful with polls these days, and the only poll that counts is the one on Election Day. But Nanos has been fairly consistent, and anything that causes the Cons to pee their pants can’t be all bad...đŸ˜‰

    If the Nanos polls are accurate it would be poetic justice. Scheer’s racism was never so obvious, and his behaviour during the Saudi crisis was disgraceful. As for his claim that his messages are “positive” that’s Scheer madness.

    1. Hi anon...yes it would be poetic justice, especially since our Con media allowed Scheer and his gang to get away with murder. Both that racist poster and the way Scheer behaved during the Saudi crisis were legitimate scandals, and the way the media all but ignored them was absolutely disgraceful...

    Cons love winners and if you are not winning someone is to blame. Trudeau is to blame for everything else but even in a twisted double speak universe they cannot blame Trudeau for the reason Cons are trailing by 11 points. Then there is the Max factor.... signs of a weak leader who cannot even subdue his own people. Oh the shame!

    1. Hi RT...you’re right, the Cons can try to blame Trudeau and the media for their own ratty behaviour, but it won’t work for long. And as for Mad Max, as the number of Cons supporting him continues to grow, Andrew Scheer is going to look like a very scared little leader, who lies all the time and is capable of anything....

    "20 percent of Canadians were unsure who they preferred as PM." Wow, given a choice of Gen-X Mister Rogers who stared down the devil incarnate, Chucky from the Child's Play movies, a right-wing idiot obsessed with dairy cows who isn't California congressional cheesehead Devin Nunes, a respectable environmentalist who nevertheless doesn't stand much of a chance, or a guy who doesn't even have a seat in Parliament and just got 86ed by his own party, 20 percent of Canadians said, "I dunno."

    Either 20 percent of Canadians live on a remote island or in a cave with no contact with the outside world, aren't telling pollsters what they feel is their own business, or are apathetic pranksters who chose none of the above because they want to see Ed the Sock, Justin Bieber or the elephant from "The Elephant Show" move in at Sussex Drive. My money's on the second option, but if anyone subscribes to the third option... they should know that "Donald Trump" was once a joke answer to these kind of polls too...

    But hopefully if all holds well, the first choice will be driving his trolley car back into the neighborhood next October, and Chucky will have to go back to his toy box in Saskapatch. Although I heard a rumor that Andy went as himself for trick-or-treat and people still didn't recognize who he was.

    1. Hi Jackie...I know it’s depressing how ignorant and out of it some people can be. Canada was just recognized for being an educational superpower, ahead of the U.S., the UK, France and others. But i’m afraid we won’t make much progress on the political front, until those bright kids are old enough to vote...

    This won't help...
    Can't say I saw that coming!

  6. anyone want a gazebo cheap?

  7. On top of all this, Scheer has zero charisma and wears 1950s suburban clothing. Bernier is just as much of an idiot, a climate denier and libertarian who doesn't understand why his dairy farmer neighbours are pissed off at him, but he has that "bad boy" charisma that appeals to some. At least this may well divide the Cons.

    1. Hi lagatta...that latest Nanos poll has Bernier’s party up a notch from the last poll. And if that is what accounts for the Cons continuing to tank, just few more percentage points could eliminate any chance of the Cons winning the election. Go Bobo go...
