Conservative COVID-19

Conservative voters 4 times more likely to spread COVID-19 than Lib/NDP

Jury is out on Bloc and Greens.

A new Angus Reid poll suggests that there is a correlation between political party affiliation and COVID-19 compliance. The survey, which categorizes Canadians into three categories — Infection Fighters, Inconsistent and Cynical Spreaders — finds that supporters of the Conservative Party of Canada are four times more likely to be Cynical Spreaders, who “disregard most, if not all, COVID-19 safety precautions.” Eight per cent of both Liberal and NDP voters are said to be Cynical Spreaders compared with 32 per cent of Conservative voters.
