There’s a certain masochistic streak among those who vote for leftist politicians, and
because of that sad fact all too often poor performance is not a predictor of electoral prospects. What I can tell you about Pierre Poilievre is that a couple of days ago he went viral on social media for one of the most brilliantly effortless takedowns of a propagandist disguised as a “mainstream” journalist that I’ve ever seen. Not that this approach is new. It’s very much Donald Trump’s approach. Ron DeSantis's too.
