A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey found 59 percent of likely U.S. voters support the Canadian trucker protest. Forty-two percent said they strongly support the effort.
Thirty-three percent of voters oppose the protest, including 21 percent who strongly oppose it.
Canadian Prime Minister Justice Trudeau invoked the country’s Emergencies Act to quell the protests as drivers and others have impacted Ottawa and blocked border crossings due to frustration with the Canadian COVID-19 restrictions.
Fifty-one percent of likely U.S. voters said Trudeau should end Canada’s restrictions. Thirty-five percent said he should not concede.
Fifty-four percent of U.S. voters said they’d support trucker protests in America. Thirty-eight percent said they would oppose it.
Seventy-one percent of Republicans and 55 percent of unaffiliated voters said Trudeau should meet their demands, but just 28 percent of Democrats agreed.
