Canada for Obama

A massive majority of Canadians prefer Obama in the American presidential election according to a new national poll of 1,000 Canadians conducted by Environics Research. A similar proportion expects him to win, and three-quarters think the outcome of the US election will make a difference for Canada's future.

Seven in ten Canadians (71%) would most like to see the Democratic Party candidates win, compared to just 13 percent who would prefer the Republicans. Another 14 percent have no opinion or do not favour either candidate...

Canadians in all regions and socio-economic segments prefer the Democratic Party ticket, as do a majority of the supporters of each of Canada's main political parties... It is notable that even among Conservative supporters -- who would be expected to have the greatest ideological affinity for Republicans -- the Democratic ticket is preferred by more than a two to one margin.
