Abacus data just released poll results from the end of 2018. They summarized Canadian's opinions of Justin Trudeau. Not to most people's surprise, only a quarter of Albertans approve of the Trudeau government.
That number is of course contrasted by much higher support in Eastern Canada.
What was perhaps most interesting was that 57 per cent of Albertans outright disapprove of the Trudeau Liberals. Of course, this didn't make the mainstream media very happy.
The StarMetro Edmonton reported on these numbers and made sure to characterize Albertans who didn't support Justin Trudeau as, well, racists. Not only that, according to StarMetro Edmonton, Albertans who don't approve of the Trudeau government think women's issues are a joke.
They even ran some mental gymnastics to connect a vague question about homosexuality being a choice to people's opinions on the performance of the government.
I wonder how big the cheque is that Justin Trudeau cut to the StarMetro Edmonton because this is some real hard-hitting journalism right here.
Instead of writing a story about why I think people think the way they do, I went out to ask everyday Albertans why they think Justin Trudeau's poll numbers are so low.
