Canadians Think Andrew Scheer Would Be The Best Leader For Dealing With Trump - 2019-08-27
With the Canadian election getting closer every day, there are plenty of issues on voters' minds, including climate change, electoral reform, and the economy. However, one issue that may also play a role in the election is how Canada's future Prime Minister will work with the President of the United States. Canadians think that Andrew Scheer and Donald Trump will work together the best, according to a new poll.
Mainstreet Research conducted the poll for iPolitics in which 2,463 people were surveyed by phone between July 30 and 31. The results were loud and clear. While 35.7 percent of Canadians believe Justin Trudeau would best represent Canada on the world stage, 39.4 percent believe that Andrew Scheer would work best with the Trump administration.
Quito Maggi, president and CEO of Mainstreet Research, said in a statement that "Canadians likely see a slightly better ideological fit with Andrew Scheer and the current U.S. administration so that is what is driving these numbers."
