Commentary
British Columbians overwhelmingly believe that the Vancouver Canucks NHL hockey team will win the Stanley Cup in this ROBBINS poll conducted Saturday May 27, to Monday May 29, 2011.
The decided number who "believe" (86.75%) nearly precisely matches the percentage from an Ipsos Reid poll (83%) of British Columbians in a national poll conducted May 30 and 31, 2011
This ROBBINS poll presumes nearly 80% participation as to either "Yes" or "No" responses - much higher than the approximately 50% interest suggested by Ipsos across Canada.
Previous BC polls of interest in Vancouver Canucks hockey during the regular seasons have reflected a 50% interest in the team.
This poll reflects more than a bandwagon effect.
British Columbians who believe in the Vancouver Canucks - speak about the team as if they are family - with positive comments about all of the players - and the team coach and manager - even the owner.
The sense of "believe" seems to transcend even the Vancouver Olympics - or at least matches that feeling. This "believe" is province wide with British Columbians in the north and south and Vancouver Island actually slightly more 'believing' than even those residents in the lower mainland - of the province where Vancouver is located.
A random sample of 1,021 British Columbians May 27, 2011 to May 29, 2011. The margin of error of this poll is 3.08% 19 times out of 20 @ 95% confidence.
