#TrudeaulessTuesday Is Trending & It Shows Just How Nasty The Election Has Become

Voters are using Twitter to express their political views.

It's election day in Canada and everyone is getting ready to cast their ballots. Some major political rivalry has been going on nation-wide and we've all been unable to turn away from watching our prospective leaders challenge each other with their opposing views. Election day in Canada has also seen lots of opinions circulating the internet about the future of our country, including a "Trudeauless Tuesday" hashtag that is trending on Twitter. As people start to go and vote today, Twitter has been loaded with tons of voters sharing their political opinions in their final hours before a new Prime Minister is named.

As #TrudeaulessTuesday trends on Twitter, voters are sharing their reasons why they are not voting for Trudeau this year. Meanwhile, his supporters are firing back at the hashtag, sharing their views on why they think a Trudeauless Tuesday would be a bad move for Canada. It is clear to see that Canadians are not seeing eye-to-eye on who deserves to be the Prime Minister of the country. It's been a close call between the Conservatives and the Liberals, and updates on the election polls have been swinging back and forth between Scheer and Trudeau. The CBC poll tracker shows that as of yesterday, October 20 at 11:38 p.m., the Liberals are in the lead, with 32 percent of the vote, while the Conservatives are close behind at 31.6 percent.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, Canadians are sharing their reasons for voting for or against Trudeau.

Some users are targetting the current Prime Minister, stating, "#TrudeaulessTuesday because those carbon tax rebates don't even begin to cover the price rise of groceries that came with it."

While another user states, "Enough of the lies. Enough of the scandal. Enough of the division. Enough of Justin Trudeau." 

It seems like Canadians are feeling passionate. 

Obviously, the Trudeauless Tuesday hashtag mainly showcases people who don't support the Liberals. However, many Liberal supporters have also used the hashtag to state why a Trudeauless Tuesday would be a bad idea. 

One user even stating, "Today I am praying for the people/bots on this thread to disappear with their hateful views. Trudeau has been a good PM."

Go and vote today, Canada!
