What makes Canadian and American politics alike, and different
INNOVATIVE is helping to answer that questions by conducting a pair of online surveys in the United States and Canada to understand the political landscape in both countries and the values voters hold. The objective of the study is to answer three key questions.
- What is happening in the 2020 US Presidential election and why?
- What the similarities and differences between Canada and the US?
- How have these differences have changed since Trump’s election in 2016.
This study is a follow-up to a similar study we conducted in 2016, allowing us to understand not only the current landscape in each country, but how things have been changing over time. While the 2020 study has been updated with new questions, the results of the 2016 study are shown for comparison wherever available.

Methodology: Results for this study come from two online surveys of American registered voters and Canadian eligible voters. Both surveys were in field from September 29, 2020 to October 6, 2020. The American survey has a total weighted sample size of 1,000; the sample was weighted by age, gender, region, education, race, and urban/rural. The Canadian survey has a total weighted sample size of 1,500; the sample was weighted by age, gender, and region. See the full report for detailed methodology.
COVID may be no big deal to Donald Trump as far as his personal health goes, but it is sapping the strength of the populism that got him elected four years ago, according to a large, new survey of political values in the U.S. and Canada.
Populism is on the wane in Canada too, according to the cross-border poll by the Innovative Research Group, which also found that Canadians and Americans are more politically similar than one might assume in the fall of 2020.
