OTTAWA – Michael Ignatieff remains a blank slate for most members of the public who don’t yet know what to make of the Liberal leader, a new poll suggests. By contrast, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a polarizing figure who evokes strong opinions from both supporters and detractors, according to the survey done by Nanos Research and provided exclusively to The Canadian Press. What the polling suggests is that Michael Ignatieff is only a name at this point,” said pollster Nik Nanos. The poll asked respondents to explain what they like or dislike about both Ignatieff and Harper. The good news for the Liberal chief was that 64 per cent couldn’t think of anything they dislike about him. People had a much better idea of where they stood on Harper.. Thirty per cent said there isn’t anything they like about the prime minister, compared with 15 per cent who said there isn’t anything they dislike. When it came to specifics five per cent said he’s honest, four per cent like his policies and four per cent said he gets things done. So 95 percent seem to think he is a bad leader.. 11 per cent said the didn’t like the fact that he breaks promises, eight per cent called him arrogant, six per cent said he’s too controlling or power-hungry, and five per cent said they just don’t like his attitude. Harper’s scores on all the leading indicators of personal dislike were worse in the latest poll than they were when the same questions were asked in Nov. 2007. The total numbers of people expressing displeasure at any one trait may be modest, but Nanos said the underlying trend is clear. He’s taken a personal hit on his image . . . which will next be refelcted in any future election too.. The people that don’t like the prime minister are much more passionate than the people who like him.” The telephone survey of 1,003 Canadian aged 18 or older was conducted between Jan. 3 and Jan. 7 and is considered accurate within plus or minus 3.19 per cent 19 times in 20. the same poll found, as previously reported, that the Liberals and Conservatives were in a statistical dead heat in terms of voter preference.
The whole world sadly too often still lies in control of the devil and his followers, so I rightfully along with many people do not believe everything I heard, read in the newspapers, surveys, polls, statistics, for my real encounters in Canada with crooked cops, bad church pastors, immoral realtors and lawyers too, lying corporations and politicians too shows there are much too many professionals who are bad persons, liars, prostitutes who sold themselves to the highest bidders. I consider most polling polls firms in the same category generally now as well.. bad persons who sell lies to the highest bidders. and any day of the week you can find news stories that differ, but also contradict the others, especially if you compare the Calgary Herald with the Toronto Globe & Mail.. and the accuracy of a poll differs greatly if you take the same poll in Montreal, Toronto versus Edmonton, or Calgary, likely they will be often the opposites results. I have already had bad experiences dealing now also with Nik Nanos as I have detailed to many, on the web, and it seems his polls favor the Liberals.. compared to others who falsely favor the Conservatives.. But I really now do have to admit this latest Poll to me was very shocking.. Imagine that according to the polls 95 percent of persons do not trust the professing Christian evangelical Prime Minister of Canada, they not think he is honest.. but rightfully neither do I too, and it all now sure does not say much good about his own personal Christian witness. Mind you some people told me why should I be dismayed at this for all politicians are supposedly big liars.. all of the liars are still unacceptable still even if they are politicians, pastors, lawyers, etc.. Get rid of them Fire them immediately too.
