Trump approval versus Trudeau

Jan 4, 2019 | 20:13 1 First a disclaimer, I am not a Donald Trump fan. I am tired of his constant tweets and how much his tariffs have affected us in Canada. But something clicked in my head today when I looked at the jobs reports from both the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. gained over 200000 jobs and Canada 9300 I believe. In my home province of Alberta we lost 17000 jobs. So I wondered which leader has a higher approval rating in his own country? A bit of quick googling and it appears Donald Trump has an approval rating of 44% if you look at realclearpolitics or around 50% if you look at Rasmussen polling. Justin Trudeau's latest approval rating according to Angus Reid is 35%. What sticks out to me is let's be honest, if you were Justin Trudeau how would you feel? He has certainly chastised Donald Trump in the past but Donald is still more popular in his own country. Any thoughts? Reply With Quote

If we get another 4 years of them we’re done. Reply With Quote
Jan 4, 2019 | 20:22 3 10 more months of the drama teacher, I would be surprised 35% would approve him.

CBC and CTV hardly cover Justin stories due to his unpopularity. Reply With Quote
Jan 4, 2019 | 20:23 4 cbc will tell you he is way more popular than that
fake news they will say

Jan 4, 2019 | 20:24 5 My thoughts are that we are currently enduring the worst government in Canadian history, by all accounts. It is almost unbelievable to think about. Reply With Quote

Yea our idiot knows what he is doing.

People wake up Canada is going backwards.

Once the housing market starts to crash look out then its high employment bankruptcy etc.

Trudeau will get a job with UN and leave us with a huge mess.

It’s sick how some still support this fool. Reply With Quote
Jan 5, 2019 | 08:23 8 SF3, there was a news story claiming that Trudeau is so far to the left he basically is Canada first NDP PM. Now we have him and the NDP and Greens who are even more left. I fear these groups will be the balance if power in a minority govt and if that happens god help us. Reply With Quote
farmaholic's Avatar Jan 5, 2019 | 08:30 9 I can't imagine Trudeau could be so naively in denial to believe that he himself is doing a good job! ...maybe it's blind arrogance.

How do the Liberals present this pig to the Canadian electorate as a feasible option for another four year term in October 2019?.....there isn't enough lipstick in Canada to put on it.

In my opinion he has been a dismal failure. I would take the cold, stone faced, dictator Harper over the clown we have today....any day!

As for Trump....yikes. Not my type of man either....I bet the Elephants are regretting that choice too. But the bit of contact I've had with American people lately, bold enough to bring up politics, seem to approve. Go figure. Reply With Quote

One thing to consider, Canada has six national parties, the USA has two parties. Therefore, am not quite sure how you can compare the two.



But if Trump is at 44% that means 56% oppose him. When I went to school 44% was a failing grade. Reply With Quote

Then what would you call 35 % for Trudeau......special needs? Reply With Quote

Actually Forage the Angus Reid poll done in December was an approval rating of just Justin Trudeau. 8% of Canadians strongly approved, 27% approve and 19% disapprove but an additional 39% strongly disapproved. So 48% disapproves of a Prime Minister that the media gives much more positive coverage of than they do of Donald Trump. So the fact remains that Justin Trudeau has less popular support of his agenda in Canada than Donald Trump does of his in the U.S. Reply With Quote

Why doesn't the canadian media cover Trudeau on a daily basis like they follow Trump hourly...

Justin just broke ethics by filming liberal fund raising in the PMs office and not even a daily news item let alone hourly ....

Fucking media gets 100s of millions and their news cycle is only 30 minutes then repeats ....

At least here on agriville there is fresh opinions or more topics to engage in.... Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jan 5, 2019 | 09:29 14 I’m am totally convinced the Canadian media wants Trudeau and will do anything to keep that looser in power.follow the money trail.

They do the old liberal slight of hand trick.

Look here and forget about the real problem over there.

Simply focus on trump and let shit for brains Trudeau get a free ride.

Funny the tv down here in the USA doesn’t really focus much on the shut down maybe a couple minutes and then on highways shootings and feel good stories.

Fox is the best news coverage ( some will cry but most Americans watch fox) cnn is losing ground.

Most Americans are working again and traveling and spending and happy.

In canada we got a carbon tax, over taxed low dollar shit show.

Thank a liberal every day of this year.

Don't think we are going to get him out bucket without some major event like recession or housing bust in GTA. Even if that happens the feds will just put a bailout on the credit card again. He is going to be buying a lot of votes this yr. Canada just became Ontario. Even if a minority is the result, that's the Libs and NDP in cahoots. That might be even worse.

Somebody for the love of god go talk to Max and get him back in the fold.

Even if we miraculously get the cons in there this term or next, they will have to go all Doug ford style cuts to get things back on tract, the public hates austerity and then turfs out the cons and we are back at square one with socialist back in there.

When Chretien and Martin balanced the budget, Canada was younger with less debt and could handle a bit if austerity. Now we are older and saddled with personal debt. No way we can handle the measures to bring that debt back under control.

I fear Oct 19 will be the death knell for this country. Capital will flee like never before. Patch will be gone.

And yet when the fiscal responsible Harper stepped in, the deficits very were large. You true Blue's didn't seem to upset about that!

Those of you trying to spin doctor Trump's approval rate and how great the USA is doing by watching Fox News, should consider the USA deficit for 2018 is $804 BILLION up $139 BILLION from 2017.

So how good are things on either side of the border? Reply With Quote
Jan 5, 2019 | 10:55 18 Thanks SF3 for posting the correct number for jobs created in the month of December in the great ol' USA.

PDJT's policies have created 312,000 jobs in just the last month.

Canada, 9,300 jobs, along way from the 10% proportion, which in comparison would have been 31,200 jobs in Canada.

Believe it or not, CBC actually has a story up stating that in all of 2018, Trudeau's policies have only created in Canada 163,000 jobs for the whole year(2018) So the USA nearly doubled Canada's yearly number, in just 1 month !

Here's the link to CBC,
https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/can...mber-1.4965916

What the media is burying away though, is that wages, on avg have increased 3.2% over the year,,,the fastest rate of increase in like 10 years.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-04/u-s-payrolls-rise-312-000-wages-top-estimates-in-jobs-blowout

For farmaholic, and all the others that can't get past Trump's brassiness, get over it. He's a New Yorker and he has all the media against him. He's not going to stop tweeting, he's not going to stop getting his message out. Trump, or no future Republican are going to allow themselves to be scalped and butchered everyday in the media, ever again. They all watched George W Bush take it for the last 3 years of his presidency, without fighting back, "for the sake of being Presidential). Republicans watched the media pummel W every day, day after day, driving down his approval rating and that is never going to happen again. Now that there is a platform to respond to the constant media attacks, the President can get his message out to his supporters. This is a permeant change, we'll never again be in a situation where only the media decide what message the public will receive.



BTW, haven't heard anyone posting about being upset that a newly elected Democrat congress woman has been publicly, unapologetically and vulgarly calling the President a "motherfucker" hum...

The Congress has a lot of bat$h@$ crazy “Democrat” socialists now.
This will play into Trump’s hand for re-election especially if one of the crazies ends up running against him.

Interesting to see how popular Trump is with the American worker vs how unpopular he appears to be on CNN/CBC/CTV. Reply With Quote

Lots of Chicken Littles on here digging to find facts to suit their story but the truth is Canada's unemployment rate in 2018 was the lowest since the 1970's while the US rate was only the same as it was in 2000.
We've also survived the Y2K type melt down you were all predicting with the introduction of a carbon tax on January first. Even with the added tax fuel is the cheapest it's been since 2016. Reply With Quote

Perhaps you could expound a bit more on the "added tax" on fuel? (assuming it doesn't overtax your capabilities) Reply With Quote
Jan 5, 2019 | 13:59 25 As much as I dislike trump the Democrats have such a hate on for him they’re foaming at the mouth. Sure a lot out there probably don’t care for him but they look at the alternatives and will hold their noses to vote him back in.

Back at home if Trudeau buys another term there will be a collapse of the federation. Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jan 5, 2019 | 14:01 26 The lady that said that was running for her life to hide from reporters the other day. She is bat shit crazy.

Also the new weird one from the Bronx will be a one term as she is totally nuts thinks super rich should live in USA and pay 80% tax rate yea that will make USA great.

Democrats are going to create a stong election for the republicans in 2020.

They are to stupid to realize that their only support are criminals and boarder crashers

The only ones who think there on the right path are celebrities and a very few democrats. Reply With Quote
Jan 5, 2019 | 14:46 27 Grass, $100B in spending had to land somewhere so we have a lot of govt make work projects and jobs. Private sector didn't create any jobs unless you count mall santas, bartenders, take out window and hotel maids. Still waiting for those high paying green jobs.

The best way to expose craziness is to give it a platform to speak. That's exactly what the democrats are doing and now Trump looks totally sane compared to those whackadoodles.

Mueller probe extended for 6 more months. Boy for a guy who apparently has the goods on trump, sure is taking a long time. Just for perspective, the Warren Commission took less than a year to investigate a presidential assassination. Conclusion, he has nothing. Reply With Quote

Are you kidding has nothing? People
Going to jail because of nothing?
Everyone is afraid of they charge the loser with anything what will happen to the economy? And Pence is a duntz so he won't be charged until much later maybe after he s booted out. They ll let out enough to let population know he s done but that's it.

His former manager owed millions to the Russians they he promised them the whitehouse to reduce what he owed. Trump gave the oil to he Russians in Syria what s not to figure out? Reply With Quote

Please detail the exact nature of the crime trump committed instead of heresay. Pretend you are in a courtroom not watching CNN.

Manaforts actions predate Trumps campaign
Negotiations for a hotel in Russia predate his campaign and presidency
Paying off someone (a hooker) who is try to extort you is not a crime

Dershowitz would know exactly what?f all is what he would know.

This is likely going to go down just as rhe bullshit with the gth and rhe irrigation and all that money rhat floated around and cash likely went in many pockets we all know what happenned but I m sure trump has a backup shredder just as wall did.

Wait until the tax returns come out when they do we won't even need mueller we ll know what it's all about.

The hookers are you talking about the USA ones or the ones that were pissing on trump during his filmed adventure. Hahahah Reply With Quote
