US Election Results : Poll shows Canada more popular Presidential Bets

US Election Results

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It’s unbelievable that the exact US Election Results in the poll conducted in Washington shows that America really likes its neighbor, Canada. Much better than their presidential bets. Here’s how it is:

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll of the presidential election asked Americans not only for their opinions on the candidates, the political parties, and the news media but their opinion on their neighbors.

The result: we win. Seventy-five percent had a positive view of Canada. Just 3 percent had a negative view.

That was way better than any other person or entity.

“There has always been, and always will be, an enormous amount of goodwill for Canada in the United States. And the feeling is mutual,” said Christine Constantin, spokesperson for the Canadian embassy in Washington. “We are your best friend, ally and neighbour. We see it every day and in countless ways.”

Mexico polled

Mexico polled at 38 percent positive, 26 percent negative. The news media was at 19 percent positive, 59 percent negative. President Barack Obama was at 51 percent positive, 39 percent negative. Former President Bill Clinton was at 45 percent positive, 38 percent negative.

None of the major presidential candidates was viewed favourably. Republican candidate Donald Trump was at 28 percent positive, 61 percent negative. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton was at 37 percent positive, 52 percent negative.

Americans have long been united in their appreciation for Canada. In a Gallup poll last year, 92 percent of Americans said they had a favourable impression, a higher figure than for any other country.

Canadians also like America

Canadians also like America, but not quite as much. Sixty-eight per cent of Canadians had a favourable view of America in a Pew poll last year; 26 percent were unfavourable.

Canada even did better in the latest poll of Americans than some of the most popular figures of the recent past. According to the Journal, Canada did even better than Michael Jordan (69 percent positive) in 1997 and Pope John Paul II (65 per cent positive) in 1998.

Clinton held a six-point overall lead in the poll, 43 percent to Trump’s 37 per cent. Libertarian Gary Johnson had 9 percent, Green Jill Stein 3 per cent.

The poll of 1,000 registered voters was conducted by phone from Sept. 16 to Sept. 19. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Find your Purpose in Life and Live a Long Life

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s a very real need to be needed! Psychologists can vouch for this statement. Imagine being the bread winner most of your adult life. Taking care of your children until they are old enough to leave home or running a business with enough employees to pay every end of the month. Then retirement time comes along without knowing it. Will you stay still and find comfort within your reach or reach out to give comfort to others? Well, if you have an active life during your prime. You may like the idea of spending time for holidays but that’s it. If it extends to longer periods without doing something substantial, then it will be mind boggling or if you allow it to go on and on, boredom can eventually kill you!

The same findings came out after the data was analyzed data from over 6,000 participants of the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) study. The experiment lasted for 14 years. Healthy eating or lifestyle in general can prolong your lifespan but if you live for others, life is happier thus allowing longevity. The most interesting part is that, sense of purpose in life can affect the quality of life of people from different age brackets. Maintaining a productive and physical social network is also contributing to having a long life due to positive emotions brought about by the support group. Keeping healthy relationships also matter!

Living with concrete direction at any point in your life is essential so as not to go astray. It’s very easy to get depressed especially after the age of 40. Actually, older people need to have a purpose in life more than their younger counterparts – because they are becoming more sensitive as they age. Despite knowing all the ways to have a long life, it’s having the sense of purpose that makes one do all those! This fact must not be ignored because all health campaigns will be useless if people are just living for their own benefit. The greater benefit can only be attained when we help others have a better life. This makes lots of sense in line with all the studies already conducted in the past.

Patrick Hill, lead researcher of the Carleton University in Canada and his associate Nicholas Turiano, of the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, NY made their findings known by publishing them in the Psychological Science journal.
