  Jan 20, 2004

A random telephone survey of 735 Canadians in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario between January 13 and 21, 2004 in Metropolitan areas only. Survey features a margin of error of 3.25% 17 times out of 20 @ 96% competency.

Question #1
If a federal general election were held one month from today for which ‘leader’ and party would you cast your vote?
Paul Martin and federal Liberal party    45.00 %
Stephen Harper and Conservative Party    27.00 %
Jack Layton and NDP    19.00 %
Question #2
Imagine for a moment you are a US citizen with all the rights and privileges that are extended to all citizens, including the right to vote in the November 2004 Presidential election. In your opinion which party would you be most likely to vote for?
Democrats    65.00 %
Republicans    33.00 %
Question #3
The former wife of an Iraqi diplomat has indicated that she believes that former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was actually captured by American military personnel in June or July. She supports her contention by saying that the foliage seen in the television images of Saddam Hussein’s hideout suggest a growing season in June or July, and not December, as represented by the Bush White House. In your opinion, how likely is it that the President of the United States, his advisors, military and Pentagon would manipulate the timing of the capture of Saddam Hussein for political purposes?
Very Likely    45.00 %
Likely    16.00 %
Not likely at all    40.00 %
Question #4
A Canadian forensic economist has reported and published that one of Prime Minister Paul Martin’s “blind trust” corporations uses taxpayer subsidies to provide strategic military intelligence and information to the French government and arm’s dealers, who may have connections to International terrorism. In your opinion, how likely is it that the Prime Minister of Canada, his advisors, military and agents would participate in this type of operation?
Very Likely    8.00 %
Likely    24.00 %
Not likely at all    64.00 %
Question #5
In your opinion can a political leader who is born into wealth, or otherwise come form wealth, empathize or understand the life experiences of the poor, or the middle-class?
Yes    27.00 %
No    70.00 %
Commentary
Commentary-Canadians prefer Paul Martin for Prime Minister but do not believe that political leaders who ‘come from wealth’ can understand the real needs of the poor and middle class. Respondents appeared to be unclear precisely how Paul Martin came into his money. Some believe he got a head start and others believe he got there under his own steam. Canadians from Metropolitan areas prefer the Democratic Party in the United States. They perceive the Republican Party as elitist, too conservative, wonder where the WMD are, or what happened to Osama Bin Laden. Nearly one-third of Canadians in this survey are of the opinion that Prime Minister Paul Martin could be involved or have companies involved in nefarious dealings abroad with countries like France, who Canadian author David Frum characterizes as a ‘potential enemy of the United States”. Lastly, it seems Canadians are generally of the opinion that their Prime Minister has ‘cleaner hands’ than the US President does.
