I think what this suggests is that Canadians are politically like Americans except less conservative.

Sadly, the Main Stream tends to treat the event as a horse race and only pays attention to the front runners. God forbid the message of limited government should get out. Nope, the circus must grow and grow....Even in Canada.

Looks like Hugh MacIntyre participated in this poll. His blog post went up half a day before these poll results were announced, there are probably not that many US presidential polls conducted in Canada, and his poll also didn't have a Ron Paul option.
"They asked me about 5 candidates and there are 6 candidates still in the race. How much more effort would it have cost them to ask me if I supported Ron Paul? Would they have had to pay the woman more or something?...
I insisted on saying Ron Paul anyway. I have a hope that there was a space to write Ron Paul on the answer sheet. But somehow I doubt it."
Looks like he was right to doubt, Hugh probably got counted under "Neither of Them", perhaps along with some other Canadian Paul supporters.
