Backlash: Conservatives Surge, Trudeau’s Liberals Plummet:
But now, the latest Mainstreet Research survey – conducted between February 16-17 (thus taking place after the Liberals imposed the Emergencies Act) – shows the situation has changed dramatically, and Canada has moved to the right.
The Liberals are up 2 points, now at 31%. But the backlash against the Emergencies Act has consolidated support for the Conservatives, who are up 10 points to 39%.
Since replacing Erin O’Toole with Candice Bergen – who is taking a hardline in terms of opposing restrictions & mandates – and who publicly supported the Truckers, the CPC now leads the Liberals by 8 points.The NDP appears to be paying a price for their support of the Emergencies Act (something they can still reverse), as they have fallen to 15%.
