Readers say they’re going to vote Conservative

This past week might not have been the best week to ask readers who they’re going to vote for in this fall’s federal election.

We posted the question before Jody Wilson-Raybould testified before the justice committee and before Jane Philpott announced her resignation but left the poll open for the past week. Needless to say, our readers aren’t happy with the Liberal government or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

We asked readers if the election was held today, who would they vote for. We received 164 responses over seven days, so our poll is by no means scientific. It wasn’t meant to be. It’s just for fun.

Here’s what our readers had to say:

A whopping 56.71 per cent of respondents said they plan to vote Conservative. The other three parties were pretty much in a dead heat with 10.98 per cent saying they would vote NDP; 10.37 saying they would vote for the Green Party of Canada; and 9.76 saying they would vote Liberal. The People’s Party of Canada garnered 5.49 per cent, 4.27 per cent said they were undecided; and 2.44 per cent chose some other party.

When asked to rate the performance of the leaders on a scale of 0-100, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer came out on top with score of 50; Green Party leader Elizabeth May had a score of 28; Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh tied with scores of 24; and People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier scored 19.
