OTTAWA—If Justin Trudeau is elected Liberal leader this month, he still has to convince about half of Canadians that he’s qualified to be prime minister, a new poll shows.
With Conservatives reportedly set to attack Trudeau’s fitness for office and his claims to speak for the middle class, Forum Research asked more than 1,300 Canadians about how they viewed the qualifications of the 41-year-old former teacher and son of the former prime minister.
While 48 per cent said Trudeau was qualified to be prime minister, 37 per cent said he wasn’t and another 16 per cent said they didn’t know.
I wonder if we could go back in time to 2005 and ask those same people whether they thought Stephen Harper was qualified for the job… what do you think? Yeah, me neither.
