If Canadians Could Elect the President of the USA

Via democraticSPACE, a new Decima poll indicates that Canadians, even Conservatives, heavily favour Democrats over Republicans when it comes to the 2008 Presidential Elections.

The survey also looked at the popularity of possible Democratic nominees. Former first lady Hillary Clinton was the most popular, favoured by 31 per cent of respondents, followed by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore at 16 per cent, Illinois Senator Barak Obama at eight per cent and John Edwards, the Senator from North Carolina, at six per cent. Anderson cautioned that no single Democratic candidate has "fully captured Canadians' imagination" and speculated that Clinton's current popularity in the survey may reflect nothing more than her high name recognition.
