Poll: four out of ten Americans would rather have Trudeau than Trump as President

A February 7, 2017 Ipsos survey conducted for Global News revealed that 40% of Americans polled would rather have Prime Minister Trudeau over Donald Trump as their President, while 33% “disagree” and 27% don’t know enough to have an opinion.

Of those who prefer Trudeau to Trump, 4% said they started looking into moving to Canada and 7% said they are “seriously considering” the move.

When it came to security, 26% said Trudeau’s immigration policies are making North America more vulnerable to terror, while 34% disagreed and 40% didn’t know enough to have an opinion.

In addition, 41% believe that Trudeau should take in the refugees that Donald Trump is refusing to admit to the United States, while 32% disagree and 27% didn’t have an opinion.

At the same time, the same percentage of Canadians (41%) say the refugee target is too high and fewer refugees should be allowed to enter the country.

According to a Mainstreet Research poll conducted north of the border for the National Post that same week, Trump scored higher among Canadians than Trudeau on his economic policy (53%) and national security policy (51%), compared with Trudeau’s 43% and 39%, respectively.

And an Ipsos Poll conducted on behalf of Global News and released one day before the 2016 US elections revealed that 76% of Canadians surveyed said they would consider voting for a candidate with “Trump-like” qualities, including stricter immigration control, reviewing trade agreements to ensure they are in Canada’s best interest and getting tough on crime.
