On today’s Big Story podcast, recent polls from across the spectrum show that the Conservative Party of Canada is struggling to mount a significant challenge to liberals in the upcoming elections, which seem to be fast approaching. More worrisome than the low poll numbers is another statistic: the percentage of Canadians who would be willing to consider the Conservative vote. That’s 41 percent, seven points less than in 2019.
The current pool of Conservative Party voters is shrinking. Who are they losing and why? What could bring them back to the fold? Are your other groups that might be drawn to a more centrist party, and is the CCP willing to take the short-term pain of alienating a far-right base to chase votes in the center?
