New polling by Decima Research shows that:
• 43% think Stephane Dion has the “potential to be an excellent Prime Minister of Canada one day”, while 30% disagree, and 27% are undecided. English Canadians and French Canadians are united on this point, 43% of both linguistic groups agree. Agreement is 49% in Ontario, 43% in Quebec, and drops to 31% in Alberta and 32% in BC.
• One in five (21%) think Stephane Dion “doesn’t speak English well enough to be Prime Minister of Canada”, while 58% reject that idea, and 21% don’t yet have an opinion. 23% of English Canadians feel this way, 24% of Ontario residents, 25% in Alberta, and 26% in BC.This sentiment is most common among those who are planning on voting Conservative
(33%), while only 10% of those planning on voting NDP have this concern.
• 32% say Stephane Dion’s “values are similar to my own values”, while 37% disagree, and 31% are undecided on that question. Anglophones (33%) are more likely than Francophones (28%) to feel this way. 34% of those who voted NDP in the last election feel this way, as do 22% of those who voted BQ.
• 32% think Stephane Dion “seems like an academic who has trouble relating to the average person”, while 39% disagree with that assertion, and 29% are undecided. Francophones are more likely to agree (36%) than Anglophones (31%).
• One in four (24%) think Stephane Dion “is too left wing for my tastes” 46% disagree, and 30% are unsure. This sentiment is most strongly felt in Alberta (44%), BC (32%) and among those who voted Conservative (43%) in the last election.
• 33% think Mr. Dion is “a breath of fresh air in Canadian politics”, while 41% disagree, and 26% are unsure. Worth noting is that voters over the age of 55 are more likely than any other age group to feel this way (41%). Anglophones (33%) and Francophones (33%) are alike on this question.
• 31% “would like to see Stephane Dion win the next election and become Prime Minister” while 45% disagree, and 24% are undecided. Not surprisingly, this question breaks down considerably along partisan lines. Only 15% of those who voted Conservative last election feel this way, but 31% of NDP voters, 30% of BQ voters, and 38% of those who are planning on voting Green have this sentiment.

There are some people who hate Harper because of what he stands for and would vote for anything. Dion is riding on a bit of a high and most people don't know a lot about him. This is what probably is really working in his favour.
