As the Conservative Conference opens it’s second day there are a number of ghosts still haunting the halls of convention central!The Nanos Research survey of 1,000 Canadians was conducted from Oct. 26 to 30, 2013. Participants were randomly recruited by both landline and cellphone, and administered a survey online.
Of those surveyed, 51 per cent thought Duffy was not credible, compared with 50 per cent for Brazeau and 41 per cent for Wallin.
“Their credibility is at about the same level as Harper’s credibility,” Nanos said.
“Canadians don’t believe anyone. If you ask an average Canadian, they probably think that all of them are speaking a half truth.”
Harper has maintained all along he knew nothing about the $90,000 his former chief of staff Nigel Wright gave to Duffy out of his own pocket to repay his ineligible expenses.
Wright’s “deception,” according to Harper, is the reason why his right-hand man is no longer working for him.
The danger with the prime minister’s narrative, Nanos said, is Harper believes it’s always “somebody else’s fault.”
