The Liberals Are Unpopular and Poor – Don’t Expect A Pre-2025 Election

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on May 3, 2023

There has been a lot of speculation on whether certain actions of communications by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government are indicative of a federal election coming in the near future. 

The Liberals naming new election nominees and Trudeau taking direct personal shots at Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre would hint at a summer election, but it seems like a lot of political analysts are ignoring the background fundamentals making it virtually impossible, or at least rock stupid for Trudeau to call a new election before 2025. To be fair, a lot of political analysts think an election is upon us when they find a small collection of breadcrumbs left on their breakfast table.

Right now, Justin Trudeau is facing poor public polling numbers, multiple ongoing scandals, as well as worst of all having less than half of the donations as the Conservative Party in the first quarter of 2023. 

Trudeau is currently ham-handedly fighting through, as well as often hiding from, a scandal involving election interference from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Just recently it was leaked out of CSIS that Conservative MP Michael Chong’s relatives in Hong Kong were threatened by the CCP, and the Trudeau Liberals did nothing despite being informed of the situation by Chong himself. 

And while the polling shows the Conservatives often lending the Liberals by 4-7 points in the polls, internally it has been said the Liberals are even further down (according to Liberal insiders who have spoken to The National Telegraph).

Simply put, Justin Trudeau has no narrative to run on. Really it’s Poilievre who has the narrative of the upcoming plucky Conservative leader coming to dethrone the arrogant and out-of-touch urban progressive. 

Don’t expect an election before 2025. We may see some byelection for the Liberals to test the temperature of the water, but Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party would be fools to try and jump to an election when they have more than 2 years to sit back and let the waters naturally calm.

    Great… two more years of Ringmaster True-Dope and his Circus of Tyrannical Diversity and Censorship. Here’s hoping there’s at least some semblance of Canada left to rule in 2025.

      Many, including myself, were hoping his plane takes a dive into the ocean on its way to Chuck’s coronation. It would have been dancing in the streets!
