Canada is not immune to Trumpism

In the last month of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, I published  an analysis of a Léger poll about Canadians' impressions of the two main candidates in Maclean's. "If you could vote in the U.S. presidential election, would you vote for Joe Biden or Donald Trump?" was asked to a panel of over 1,500 Canadian respondents and an overwhelming majority, 84% of decided respondents, chose Biden over Trump. Roughly one of six voters in Canada sided with Donald Trump.

Breaking down the results from the poll's subsamples, we saw generally uniform data through age groups and regions of the country. And while Trump was a little more popular in Alberta than other provinces, still two thirds of Albertan respondents favoured Joe Biden over Donald Trump.
