Justin Trudeau could face an electoral fight and could lose it

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during a Liberal fundraising event at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ont., on Dec. 19, 2018.

Justin Trudeau is a Canadian politician serving as the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada since 2015 and Leader of the Liberal Party since 2013. Trudeau is the second-youngest Canadian Prime Minister, after Joe Clark; he is also the first to be related to a previous holder of the post, as the eldest is of Pierre Trudeau.

So the current prime minister could face an electoral fight and possibly he would not be victorious over it. In fact, I could lose it. This fight would be really difficult for him.

For some, after three years of exposure, the charm has worn away. In fact, there are those who consider that he is often simplistic. He hits many voters as fatuous and superficial. He’s smart enough, but he’s an old mean world and people wonder, understandably, if he’s up to the challenges facing Canada.

It has been said that he simply cannot make difficult decisions. However, it ensures that Canadians can have it all. As well as pipes along with carbon taxes, and substantial deficits that he swears are being spent on good investments. Not everyone is buying it.

The effect of disenchantment

Due to Trudeau’s disenchantment, a negative effect has already occurred. And it has reduced the popularity of his party to approximately 36 percent in the polls. Which is only two points ahead of the conservatives, as noted by UBC professor Richard Johnston.

It should be mentioned that Trudeau’s approval rating is lower than that of the president of the United States, Donald Trump. In fact, according to a new Nik Nanos poll, only 35 percent of Canadians approve of the Trudeau government’s performance. This is almost the same percentage that approved Stephen Harper’s performance in 2014.

There are several factors that cannot be set aside and that are not beneficial for Trudeau, in such a way that they could cost him victory in an electoral contest. As well as the debts and deficits. Possibly, for Canadians, government deficits are not of great importance when times are difficult. However, in good times like these, most want budgets balanced.
