According to a newly published polling report, the new coronavirus epidemic has continued so far, and the number of citizens who are satisfied with the federal government has continued to drop, which has been overwhelmed by the proportion of people who are angry with the government.
The polling company Nanos Research conducted a random sample survey from the 26th to the 30th of last month. It interviewed 1,049 Canadian citizens 18 years of age or older via telephone and online to discuss their views on the federal government.
The results of the poll showed that 22.9% of surveyed citizens said they were satisfied with the federal government; 15% said they were optimistic about the federal government; 20.6% said they were pessimistic; 25.9% said they were angry; 7.5% said they did not care about the federal government; Another 8.1% said they were not sure of the answer.
Nanos pointed out that since the last poll of the same kind at the end of May this year, people's views on the federal government have now reversed, and public anger is rising. There are more people who are angry with the government than those who are satisfied. According to the poll conducted at the end of May this year, 30.2% of respondents are satisfied with the federal government; 21.2% are optimistic; 18.8% are pessimistic; 17.1% are angry; 5.6% are not Concerned; another 7% said they were not sure of the answer.
Comparing the data of the two polls, the proportion of citizens who are angry with the federal government is now greater than the proportion of citizens who are satisfied. In addition, the proportion of pessimists has surpassed the proportion of optimists. Based on the analysis of provinces and regions, among the respondents who are angry with the federal government, the grassland provinces have the most residents. Among the respondents from the province, as many as 39.8% said this. This is followed by residents of Ontario (27.8%), British Columbia (18.7%), Quebec (18.6%) and Atlantic provinces (16.4%). In terms of gender and age, among the respondents who are angry with the federal government, the proportion of men (30.5%) is higher than that of women (21.4%).
In the middle-aged generation, more people are angry with the federal government. Among the respondents in the 35-54 age group, as many as 27.8% have this view. Followed by respondents aged 55 or above (26.1%), and respondents aged 18 to 34 (23.2%). The poll also found that the percentage of people in the Atlantic provinces satisfied with the federal government is the highest in the country, and the grassland provinces are the lowest. The former is as high as 31.7%, and the latter is only 15%. The proportions of people in British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario who feel this way are 25.4%, 23.6% and 17.9% respectively.
Toronto senior current affairs commentator Jiang Dahui said in an interview yesterday that the general public’s view of the federal government has reversed within three months, which is believed to be related to the continuation of the country’s new crown virus epidemic and the WE Charity incident. Jiang Dahui said that at the end of May this year, many people expected that the epidemic would recede after entering the summer, and their lives would return to normal. However, by the end of July, the people realized that the end of the epidemic was nowhere in sight, the "new normal" of epidemic prevention continued to live, and the economic situation of families had not improved.
At the end of June, the Federation announced that a 900 million yuan student volunteer funding program was exclusively awarded to the charity organization WE Charity to manage the incident, which caused a series of controversy and criticism. The epidemic and scandal have increased national disgust towards the federal government. However, Jiang believes that it is unlikely that the opposition parties will jointly overthrow the Liberal Party's minority-seat government within this year. He pointed out that the Federal Conservative Party has just elected a new party leader. The party is still not confident that it will win enough seats in Quebec and the Greater Toronto Area to overwhelm the Liberal Party in the general election, and that during the epidemic, various parties have encountered certain difficulties in fundraising. He pointed out that if the opposition party toppled the Liberal Party government in the short term to trigger a general election, and the result of the election is that the Liberal Party continues to gain the support of voters to govern, in the future, even if more inside information is revealed in the WE Charity incident, this scandal will lose its use by opposition parties.
