National Post: Canadians deeply dislike Trump, but prefer him to Trudeau on economy, security: poll

OTTAWA — Despite deep overall disapproval of U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadians prefer Trump’s approach to managing the economy and national security over the approach of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a poll taken on the eve of Trump’s inauguration.

The poll from Mainstreet Research, provided exclusively to the National Post, is the latest survey to show that a significant majority of Canadians have a dim view of Trump.

But it is the first poll that compares Trump to Trudeau across a range of personal characteristics and policy areas.

Trudeau easily tops Trump among Canadian voters when it come to perceptions of intelligence, compassion, honesty and several other measures.

WNU Editor: I'm not sure of this poll .... especially when I saw this ....

.... But on economic policy, 53 per cent of Canadians approve of what Trump is doing versus 43 per cent of Canadians who approve of what Trudeau is doing. Trudeau’s “disapproval” rating on economic policy is 41 per cent while Trump’s disapproval on this issue is just 22 per cent.

I live in Quebec and the GF lives in eastern Ontario .... and support for Prime Minister Trudeau's economic policies are nowhere near 43%.

On a side note ....  both leaders are meeting tomorrow .... Trump will meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the first time Monday (AP).

Update: Trudeau is the 3rd leader hosted by Trump: Here's how the first 2 meetings went (CBC).

Will DJT do the typical US response to Canada? The typucal response being get on our knees and beg the Canadians to pkezse like us. Actually it isn't just Canada. This song and dance generally has applied when a POTUS meets any foreign leader. They've grown used to this sort of behavior, have come to expect it, and becone p!ssed when Americans don't show the worship and deference to them that they've come to expect.

DJT will probably not do this. No wonder some don't like him.

The people where I live are fed up with Trudeau, they see him as amateurish and out of his league.
