OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – If a Canadian federal election were held today, the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) under its new leader Pierre Poilievre would beat out the Liberals under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a new poll.

The Liberal-inclined pollsters at Abacus Data found that 35 percent of respondents would vote for the CPC under Poilievre, with only 30 percent voting for Trudeau. In third place is the NDP at 17 percent, with the Bloc Quebecois showing nine percent of the votes.

Conducted after Poilievre was announced the winner of the CPC, the poll also found that the People’s Party of Canada under Maxime Bernier has four percent support.

Overall, the poll shows that the CPC under Poilievre has most of the support in all prairie provinces. In Alberta, he has 56 percent support, with 51 percent in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

In British Columbia, Poilievre has 33 percent support, which would give his party the lead in that province.

In Ontario, Poilievre has 38 percent support, which would mean a CPC victory in that province is more than likely.

However, the poll also shows that while there is much more support for the CPC under its new leader, many don’t have the highest regard for Poilievre himself.

A total of 34 percent of poll respondents overall said they had a negative view of Poilievre, with only 29 percent saying they had a positive view of him.

Yet another poll conducted by Leger from September 16 to 18, 2022 shows that 34 percent of Canadians would vote for Poilievre, with 28 percent opting for Trudeau.

On September 10, the CPC elected Poilievre, who serves as an MP in Ottawa-Carlton, to lead the party after he took home 68 percent of the vote on the first ballot. CPC MP Leslyn Lewis came in third with an impressive 9.7 percent, behind Jean Charest at 16.07 percent.

While Lewis was the sole pro-life candidate in the running with the full support of Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), the group’s president Jeff Gunnarson noted that Poilievre had promised free votes for MPs on matters of conscience.

“Although he continues to support abortion, promised free votes for MPs on matters of conscience, to promote the choice of adoption, and to defend pro-life crisis pregnancy centres from Liberal attacks,” noted Gunnarson.

Poilievre ran on a platform saying he would remove “gatekeepers” and work hard to target inflation. He also said he would go after the influence the World Economic Forum (WEF) has on MPs.

The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) failed spectacularly at resisting the initial COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates that were imposed by the government on freedom-loving Canadians.

Most CPC MPs subserviently complied with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in creating a police-state where our Charter Rights were regularly violated, but now Pierre Poilievre would have us believe they have turned a corner and nothing like it will ever happen again. 

How can they rebuild our trust? Well, they can start by owning up to their terrible mistakes. 

SIGN: The CPC must apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID regime.

You will remember how freedom-loving Canadians were abandoned by the CPC, with Erin O'Toole calling for vaccine passports and most CPC MPs pearl-clutching about "vaccine hesitancy".

That was until the party realized how popular the Truckers' Convoy had become and got behind the movement. 

It's quite possible the CPC would still be mute on vaccine mandates and lockdowns were it not for the heroic Freedom Convoy that converged on Ottawa. 

Let's not forget the businesses, churches, schools and universities that were shuttered for months on end because of the COVID hysteria generated by politicians in Ottawa, and the CPC did nothing.

They did nothing when people started losing their livelihoods (with some Canadians even losing their lives to suicide) because of the government's deranged policy of locking people down.

The CPC must show they have learned a lesson from the COVID tyranny Canadians needlessly suffered and that they contributed to.

SIGN: Demand the CPC apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

In yet another reminder of how disconnected from reality the CPC were, MPs like Leslyn Lewis, Marilyn Gladu and Rosemarie Falk were omitted from their "Shadow Cabinet" in November 2021 because they dared to question the COVID shots.

Canadians must still contend with vaccine mandates in some settings and the intrusive ArriveCAN system in order to re-enter the country, while we are among the last three countries in the world to continue discriminating against unvaccinated visitors who remain barred from entering. 

As Pierre Poilievre takes the reigns of the CPC, conservative voters must demand an apology from the party that abandoned them during the COVID-hysteria of the past two years. 

SIGN: The CPC can rebuild trust by apologizing for capitulating to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

However, during the height of COVID, he notably did not speak out on COVID lockdowns of jab mandates, something for which Bernier has called him out.

Poilievre, whom no doubt had support from grassroots social conservatives, left out Lewis from his shadow cabinet. Instead, he filled his cabinet with MPs with anti-life and pro-LGBT voting records.

CLC gave Poilievre a failing grade for his pro-abortion voting record.

Former Liberal MP says Poilievre would win

Dan McTeague served as a Liberal Party MP for many years until 2011, and he recently said Poilievre would beat Trudeau come the next election.

“I think Mr. Poilievre, as long as he stays true to what he’s campaigned on, I think it’s a winning combination,” McTeague noted in a video posted over the weekend.

McTeague, who now serves as the president for Canadians for Affordable Energy, said that the Trudeau Liberals should be “worried because they have no one who’s fresh.”

Unless Trudeau’s minority-led government fails, Canadians will not head to the polls until 2025.

As for Poilievre, he has already been targeted by Trudeau-funded Canadian media.

Last week, Global News reporter David Akin showed his Liberal Party bias when he continually heckled Poilievre during his first press conference as the leader of His Majesty’s Royal Opposition.

As for Trudeau, a viral “#TrudeauMustGo” hashtag has reached the number one trending political topic on Twitter.
