The problem is that when the public perceives that a political leader has not responded effectively to their major concerns for a long time, it’s possible that nothing will work.

National caucus meeting won’t fix what ails Liberals

Whenever the federal Liberals finally decide to hold a national caucus meeting, here is the problem confronting them about the government of their leader, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

On every one of the top issues Canadians say they are most concerned about, Pierre Poilievre and the Conservatives have a big lead over them.

Abacus Data last month polled 1,900 Canadian adults asking them what they see as the three most important issues facing Canada today.

CEO David Coletto said the results were consistent with Abacus polling over the past two years and, “show that the Conservative Party is currently ahead on the issues that matter most to Canadians.”

The poll found, “the cost of living remains the largest issue facing more Canadians (71%); followed by housing affordability and accessibility (46%); healthcare (42%); the economy (33%), and immigration (27%). In total, 86% of Canadians put either the cost of living or housing as a top issue.”

It also found, “the Conservative party has a big lead among those who rate the rising cost of living, housing affordability and accessibility, the economy, and immigration as top issues. The Liberals lead only among those who consider climate change and the environment as a top issue.”
