Most Canadians disagree with Trump
Majority wouldn’t ban him from country
TORONTO December 29th - In a random sampling of
public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 1395 Canadian adults, as many as two
thirds disapprove of US presidential contender Donald Trump in total (68%),
while fewer than one fifth approves (19%) and one tenth do not have an opinion
(12%). Approval is common to the youngest (23%), males (26%), mid income groups
($40K to $60K - 24%), in Ontario (23%) and Alberta (34%).
Majority disagree with barring Trump
The majority of Canadians aren’t comfortable with the idea
of banning Donald Trump from the country (54%), although as many as one third
are in agreement (33%). This position is common to females (38%), the least
wealthy (less than $20K - 45%) in Quebec (43%).
Two thirds disagree with barring Muslims
As many as two thirds of Canadians disagree with Trump’s
plan to bar all Muslims from entering the US (67%), and fewer than a quarter
agree (22%), a position characteristic of males (29%) in Alberta (37%).
“Trump has his
adherents and defenders in Canada; they just aren’t as numerous as they are in
the US. Canadians aren’t as quick to adopt extreme positions as some Americans
are, and Donald Trump’s positions are certainly extreme,” said
