    Smile Scheer Continues as one of Trudeau's Campaign Managers!!

    Good to know the knife-fighting will continue until the showdown in April!

    Scheer isn't popular, even among Conservatives.

    Leadership litmus test: Conservative voters evenly divided over whether Scheer should stay or go

    While 41 per cent of Conservative voters say Scheer should stay on as leader, more than four-in-five supporters say this of Justin Trudeau (85%) and Jagmeet Singh (87%)

    And

    Andrew Scheer does not sound like a man who thinks he needs to change

    But the closer Canadians looked, the less they liked what they saw.


    By the end of the fall campaign, 47 per cent of respondents viewed Scheer negatively, while 31 per cent regarded him positively. In Ontario, his negatives were 51 per cent.

    That can't be all Doug Ford's fault. And it happened without the Liberals running a massive television ad campaign against the Conservative leader.


    Instead, in late August, the Liberals posted a clip of Scheer explaining his opposition to same-sex marriage in 2005. During that speech in the House, he argued that marriage should be restricted to those who could participate in "natural procreation."


    Trouble explaining himself


    In the fall of 2019, Scheer couldn't bring himself to reckon with those comments or explain whether or how his views had changed. He also never found an answer for why he wouldn't march in a Pride parade.


    On its own, that might not have been enough to sink Scheer's campaign. But then Scheer kept having more trouble explaining himself.

    He needed multiple opportunities to admit he was against abortion. His career as an insurance broker turned out to be somewhat less than claimed. And it turned out he had forgotten to mention that he held American citizenship.

    A sad state of affairs when it seems that both of the two main parties and their leaders appear totally unable to learn from their mistakes or change course.

    Figure young Justin may have his hands full as well. It just will not be as public.

    I thought that this was a good take: https://www.macleans.ca/opinion/the-...andrew-scheer/

    Personally, I'll never vote for a party led by someone who shares Scheer's social views. And that's the case for the majority of Canadians. Maybe he can squeak out a majority with 36-38% of the vote in the next election if left leaning voters are totally exhausted with Trudeau and their votes split to the NDP/Greens, but he'd have to run a perfect campaign as well and hope everything falls his way in the big city suburbs. Hopefully the Conservative membership realizes this in April, gives him the boot, and picks someone who isn't stuck in the past.

    But 100 years older in social outlook, give or take.

    Possible Scheer campaign slogan: "Because it's 1915!"

    If Scheer can't beat a very weak Justin, who can he beat.
