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%).

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 from US

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 Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
