Large majority thinks Canada's COVID-19 response has been better than US's: survey

The majority of Canadians think their country is dealing with the COVID-19 crisis better than the United States, according to a poll.

Almost three-quarters (74%) think Canada has done better than its southern neighbour, the Research Co survey found.

“Political allegiance does not play a role in shaping the perceptions of Canadians about what is transpiring in the United States,” said Mario Canseco, president of Research Co.

“Majorities of Canadians who voted for the Liberals (78%), the New Democrats (also 78%) and the Conservatives (69%) in last year’s federal election feel the same way.”
