Notley’s approval rating “sinking like a stone”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley’s approval rating is sinking like a stone.

According to a new Mainstreet poll, Notley currently sits at a 28% approval rating, down 3% from the last polls and second last in the country, beaten to the bottom only by Ontario’s premier Kathleen Wynne.

That’s down 3% since Notley handed out a round of free light bulbs, low flow shower heads and clotheslines with the funds she wrung out of Albertans with her job-killing carbon tax. I guess we couldn’t be bribed with our own money.

Notley’s approval ratings are following the same trajectory as disgraced former premier Alison Redford. Redford’s approval rating fell from 58% to just 18% - Kathleen Wynne territory -in just over a year and a half.

Notley has plummeted from 53% approval right after she was elected in 2015 to 28% today, and we are only 6 months into the reality of her carbon tax. The numbers for Notley will just get worse the more people see her damage to their bank accounts.

There’s a moral in these new poll numbers; the moral we know the NDP are too ideological to understand. Rachel Notley’s sneering form of progressivism is being rejected. Calling regular Albertans names like embarrassing cousins, anger machine, xenophobes, bigots, deniers, and sewer rats can be bad for one's approval ratings.

But honestly, abuse from the deranged left aside, I hope the NDP never changes.

I’ll draw a parallel to the US election and to the Democrat party. The worse the Democrats acted and the more they looked down their noses at normal people like those in coal country and the rust belt, the more normal Democrat voters moved over to the right. They were plainly repulsed by the left.

When that happens, conservatism wins.

So keep it up, NDP, because I am not yet tired of winning.

BILLY HOWARD asked: “I’m curious…why is Notley almost twice as popular as Wynne?”

Still a lot of out of province parasites in Alberta sucking up the welfare……

Don asked, "I wonder how you’d get the current number … "

You’d think it would be on the Alberta government website, but it is not.

The NDP government is not doing a good job in upkeep of the website. I wonder if that is intentional.

With a public sector hire of 40,000 in 2015 and another 3000 in 2016 you would think she has more than enough people to hire someone to upkeep the website.

Don said, " … maybe the Canadian Taxpayers Federation or the Fraser Institute would have access to the latest dope."

Those are the most likely up to date sources for sure.

Andrew if the NDP have their way people will have to vote as their union tells them to. Pretty stupid thing to say.

“…346,520 public sector employees (2012-05-30) **…”

I’m thinking that post-Notley-socialists, that number will be much higher, five years later…how high, who’s to say. I wonder how you’d get the current number – and I did specify all people who were being paid by the government(taxpayers), individual and corporate welfare, workers comp, public sector pensions, disability and other claims, as well as all the ones who ‘work’ for that government cheque, it’s a long list…maybe the Canadian Taxpayers Federation or the Fraser Institute would have access to the latest dope.

Andrew said, “if all of them voted for the NDP? Do you have any evidence that this is even remotely true?”

That is why I used the word “if”. You should learn to read. It helps when trying to understand someone’s post. I was responding the Don’s post where he says, " and calculate what percentage that is compared to the 28% who allegedly voted for the socialists". When someone uses the word, “if”, it implies a hypothetical.

Andrew continues with, " Do you vote how your employer tells you?"

It is more a case of voting for who gives you the most. It is a Liberal tactic that Notley adopted from her Liberal friend, Wynne.

But like I said, I was only responding to Don’s post.

Now go play in traffic, Andrew, and leave the conversation to the adults.

I had posted this earlier but it applies now as well.
..-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

Actually I’m kind of pissed off that the Wild Rose party jumped the gun and took on board the bankrupt both morally and financially PCs who should’ve been left to die..
Wild Rose could’ve defeated the NDP by themselves without bringing the likes of Jason Kenny and the rest of that ilk who’s party consists of professional and lifetime politicians who in time will be willing to say and or do anything to keep themselves from having to get a real job and compete in the market with the masses.!!
The progressive Conservatives should have been left to die a natural l death and be reborn by their own hard work and present themselves as a viable option to the Alberta people if they felt betrayed by the current assortment for choosing.!!
I hope because I fear the weakling leader that we may get will not be able to form a bond with the strong leadership that Saskatchewan has and stand against Trudeau in his second term!!

Andrew Stephenson where do you get your numbers, and we only have one right wing premier.
And many polls said the dems would win and that would reflect Trump. Wrong again. "

Wall, Pallister? Both dropped more than Notley did. Wynne actually rose in this poll.

Andrew Stevenson—-Re Georgia Election, as soon as the final numbers came in , I did the math and the Republicans won by 11.4% , not 4 %.”

51.9 – 48.1 = 3.8.

Peter Netterville: "57.95% of those who voted for the NDP were public sector if we are to assume all public sector employees voted NDP. Surely some would have been family members who voted NDP who work for the private sector. "

if all of them voted for the NDP? Do you have any evidence that this is even remotely true? I mean, the PC era was pretty good for Alberta’s public sector, who made them the best paid in Canada. Do you vote how your employer tells you?

It would be interesting to see, if someone could find the number of people who work for the government in Alberta … calculate what percentage that is compared to the 28% who allegedly voted for the socialists, sorry, the NDP.

1,474,007 cast votes in 2015 Alberta election
40.57% voted NDP
= = = = = =
598,005 voted for NDP
346,520 public sector employees (2012-05-30) **
= = = = = =
57.95% of those who voted for the NDP were public sector if we are to assume all public sector employees voted NDP. Surely some would have been family members who voted NDP who work for the private sector.

Out of a total population of 4,146,000 in Alberta, there were 2,543,127 eligible voters – about half of whom turned out to actually vote – and 28% of those voted for the communists, er NDP.
It would be interesting to see, if someone could find the number of people who work for the government in Alberta – well let’s say instead, get paid by the taxpayer – and calculate what percentage that is compared to the 28% who allegedly voted for the socialists, sorry, the NDP.
I’m thinking there would be a correlation there.

Andrew Stephenson; Brad Wall has just come off deliverying a very tough budget and the taxpayer funded unions have been beating the drum non stop. We also just, finally,shut down the money losing state transportation company. Protests at every major bus terminal, and at the legislature . So 7% is nothing after all this and he will rise again. And the reason he will rise again is because he loves his province and is doing great job.

Hey Andy Stephonson. I kind of given up wasting time on people like you but maybe just one more time. The dumbocats put everything they had into this one and CNN were convinced they would win. Man, the look on their face said it all. Full time propaganda and attack ads just couldn’t buy the contest. I guess you will just have to settle in and go back to listening to CNN, Pelosi, Watters and all the rest of the insane asylum continue their nattering about Trump and the Russian connection. Good luck with that.
PS. Stick with your climate change routine, at least you can baffle some people with your bullshit. There is a frost warning near the Rocky Mountains tonight so you better cool it with that global warming shit for a few days.

Saskatchewan may complain a little bit about Brad wall because he had to bump a couple of taxes this year but when it comes to voting time all the other parties including the NDP in that province will realize that this was only grumbling and Brad wall will ensure that democracy Will prevail.!!
Brad will keep your province safe.!

Who ARE these cretinous 28% ?? – did they poll out of Province/country to find them?

Also Wynne was in the tank last year , not really far to drop for her.

Of course Wall has been premier fro much longer than Notley , but people like Andrew will grasp at straws.

NDP sucks

“The special election in Georgia to replace a vacant congressional seat was very important for the dumbocats who wanted to use the victory to announce they were making a comeback and Trump politics was dying. "

Kinda curious, do you think it’s a positive trend for the republicans, that a district they previously won by 24%, was taken by only 4% this time? Curious on your thoughts on how Trump’s turned one of the safest GOP districts in the US into a swing district. Do you feel that that the huge drop in GOP support is an endorsement of Trump’s policies?
commented 2017-06-22 23:35:54 -0400
Notley: down 3
Brad wall Down 7.

Left wing premiers: Up on average, 3%
Right wing premiers: Down, on average, 5.5%.
commented 2017-06-22 23:05:05 -0400
Notley will not be forced out in the same fashion Redford and Stelmach were punted. There is nobody within the NDP with enough backbone or a strong enough alliance let alone any grey matter to assemble a resistance and tell Rachel to hit the road. I think she will drag this out to the bitter end and just destroy everything and make a complete mess to punish her replacement.

The special election in Georgia to replace a vacant congressional seat was very important for the dumbocats who wanted to use the victory to announce they were making a comeback and Trump politics was dying. The media blitz had the dems winning by ten points and of course they lost even though they spent 7 times the money as the GOP victor. It was the most expensive contest in the history of the country with estimates of a total of 60 million combined from both sides. California and New York state pumped much of the money to the democrat candidate making these type of elections more national. The democrat did not live in the constituency so he could not vote which was broadcasted to his embarrassment. The post election look on the CNN panel was priceless. Sadness, shock, disappointment and that deer in the headlights look from one commentator. Trump politics is alive and well in Atlanta, despite the media constantly spewing fake crap and the never ending attack ads which didn’t work either.

Great report Sheila!
Give Notley a week or two, she will soon catch up to Kathleen Wynne. Two socialists without much grey matter between them! They alienate and rob from the taxpayer, and expect to get hugs in return….
McGuinty and Wynne have ruined Ontario in every sector!

The media in Canada are the only ones that think Notley and Wynne have any approval.
commented 2017-06-22 19:01:35 -0400
If July 22 goes the way it logically should, Notley will resign in 2018 in time to collect her Laurentian award (Order of Canada) in 2019 for burning Alberta and ploughing the ashes under; and leave the blame for losing the 2020 election to some schmuck, maybe the invisible energy minister.
commented 2017-06-22 18:55:09 -0400
“Notley’s approval rating is sinking like a stone”, well perhaps we should tie her approval rating around her neck and toss her down a Well.

Your In fine form today SHIELA , all you would have to do is rerun that ( banning of banana bread in schools) video, and it would drop to 3 %

Lock her up with the people that voted her in
