NL Libs in big political trouble
Latest Abacus Data poll points to deep problems.
A set of tweets turned into a column.
The charts are all from Abacus Data’s most recent polling.
NL Libs are in huge political trouble. Massive.
Legault's deal will *not* change things for @FureyAndrew now matter how much he clicks his blue Adidas heels together. These numbers reflect fundamental problems.
Fed Libs are a big drag, as Coletto notes.
But this stuff is 100% provincial.
*That* is where the Lib problems really are.
Fluff on voter reality while obsessed with bad ideas and fluff. Not a comms problem.
As above, so below.
When 77% of your households are living cheque to cheque or falling behind there is a deep discomfort.
This is a long-term problem from 20 years of really bad policy that encourages the behaviour that creates this.
Gov finances are similarly screwed up.
Here's where I differ from @DavidColetto. The prov numbers are not about PMJT.
The fact Furey's Libs are not seen as driving the biggest issue means people see them as irrelevant to the solution as well.
But angry voters will transfer hate to Libs: look at gas prices/PUB.
Lastly, NL voters are notoriously passive-aggressive.
When "No response" is the biggest category by a wide margin on pos *and* neg for politicians, they better look for the exit.
