Canada's Progressive Conservativism Continues

According to a recent poll Canadians prefer the Democrats to Republicans by a ratio of 4 to 1. Even Canadian Conservative Party supporters prefer the Democrats by a ratio of 2 to 1. So even the most conservative third of Canadians would still go with the Democrats (the Conservative party has roughly 33% support).

The Globe and Mail story

The predecessor to Canada's Conservative Party was officially called the "Progressive Conservative Party". For more information about this interesting paradox, google "Red Tory".
