Hillary is Canada's Choice for US President



    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - If Canadians could choose the next US President,
it would be Hillary Clinton by a landslide, according to a new poll released
today.
    Almost four in ten Canadians want Senator Clinton as the next US
president. A new poll conducted by The Strategic Counsel on behalf of The
Globe and Mail and CTV News shows Hillary Clinton is the strong favorite among
Canadians who give the New York senator a three-to-one lead over Rudy Giuliani
(12%), the next most popular candidate among respondents. 11% would vote for
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton's closest rival for the Democratic nomination.
    "Clearly the Clinton brand continues to hold a lot of luster in Canada,"
says Tim Woolstencroft, Managing Partner of The Strategic Counsel. "Bill
Clinton has always enjoyed tremendous popularity here, and that critical mass
of positive sentiment has given Hillary's campaign a big boost. She's a strong
candidate in her own right, but it's an even stronger franchise. A lot of
Canadians would like to see another Clinton White House."
    Canadian support for Hillary Clinton cuts across age, education level,
and even political affiliation. "She's as popular among Canadian Conservatives
as she is among Canadian Liberals," says Woolstencroft, "and I think that says
something about the kind of broad, personal appeal that the Clintons have
managed to secure here in Canada."
    Hillary Clinton enjoys strongest support among Quebeckers (51%),
Francophone Canadians (52%) and, overwhelmingly, Bloc Quebecois voters (67%)
