September 23rd Poll shows that Obama has 42% of voter support compared to Harper with 29%.
And that was last week; no doubt his popularity has increased over the weekend with the US Presidential debates and the continued boringness of the Canadian election.
Placing third was New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton with 12 per cent.
But let’s give Canadians some credit, our election campaigns may be boring, our leaders may be uncharismatic and have terrible hair, our debates may have less views than amateur billiards on TSN, but when push comes to shove, Canadians understand that they live here and not in Obama-land and what they do on October 14th is important.
When British Columbians were asked which of the two national campaigns would "have more of an impact on you personally," 69 per cent said the Canadian election and only 11 per cent chose the U.S.
As uninteresting as British Columbians find the Canadian campaign, however, they claimed they will be more likely to tune into the Canadian leaders' debate than the U.S. leaders' debate. The poll found that 58 per cent of British Columbians said they expect to watch the Canadian leaders' debate, compared with only 43 per cent who expected to watch the U.S. presidential debate.
Obama for Prime Minister!
