New poll shows Canadians worried about Trump election

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A new Insights West poll shows the prospect of a Donald Trump Presidency in the US, still has a growing majority of Canadians very worried.

In the online survey of a representative national sample, 78% of Canadians expressed the belief it would be “bad” for this country, if Mr. Trump defeats Hilary Clinton in November’s general election.

That’s a 16% increase since the agency first asked the question a year ago, and the billionaire real estate developer is particularly unpopular, with women and seniors, those over the age of 55.

In addition, he really scores poorly in British Columbia, where 90 percent of the survey respondents find him unattractive.

However, the opposition in this country, and indeed this province, would appear to be firmly anchored on the left side of the political spectrum, where 92% of those who voted for the New Democrats, in last year’s Canadian federal election are opposed to Trump.

On the other hand in areas where economic performance, particularly as it relates to jobs, reigns as the number one issue, Mr. Trump gets a much more favourable response, and pollster Mario Canseco concedes, those areas include this one.

Mr. Trump also does much better with those who rank the security of the free world as a high priority, and in that regard it’s worth noting that the parents of two of the four Americans killed in the 2012 Benghazi consulate terrorist attack, are now suing Hilary Clinton.
