Andrew Scheer Is Losing Conservative Voters After His 2005 Gay Marriage Video Went Viral - 2019-08-23
It has only been around 24 hours since an old video of Conservative leader Andrew Scheer went viral on the internet, showing him openly slamming same-sex marriage. Things went from bad to worse for Scheer, as the Conservative Party official Twitter account then attempted to deflect from the video, but somehow managed to make everything much worse. Since then, things have hit an all time low for Scheer and his party, as some Conservative Canadians are now admitting that they no longer intend to vote for Scheer in October's federal election.
With the federal election only two months away, now is a pretty bad time for the Conservative party to be losing any long-time or floating voters, particularly as polls predict there is an increasingly narrow margin between the two leading political parties. However, following the publicization of a controversial video of Scheer from 2005, it seems that a number of Conservative Canadians have had enough.
The video of Scheer went viral on Thursday, showing the political leader explaining blatantly why he felt gay marriage was 'contradictory to nature.' Naturally, the video caused widespread controversy, with thousands of Canadians speaking out against the Conservative leader's comments.
