Nanos: ‘Turbulence’ for Liberals if questions persist about snap election


If questions about whether Canada needed to be plunged into the current election persist, it will mean “turbulence” for Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party, said Nanos Research’s Nik Nanos on the latest episode of Trend Line. Nanos was speaking on an election edition of Trend Line, which will be published on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays over the course of the campaign. “If this election ends up being about ‘do we need an election’ for a long period of time, it’ll mean for turbulence for the Liberals,” said Nanos. Trudeau has faced several questions from reporters on the topic after visiting the Governor General to trigger the election campaign. Party leaders followed up with statements during their own press conferences on Aug. 15. “Justin Trudeau spent his time explaining … a number of things, why are we having an election? Is this the right time to have an election? And that was the real focus yesterday,” said Nanos. Sunday’s leader statements gave us a “glimmer as to what is on the political menu,” said Nanos. You can catch the election edition of Trend Line on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings during the campaign.
