Some Background on the Barack Obama For PM campaign

This campaign was inspired by polling data that showed Canadians prefer Obama over our own leaders; Obama 26%, Harper 21%.

(UPDATE! September 23rd Poll shows that Obama has 42% of voter support compared to Harper with 29%. LANDSLIDE!)

A recent article mentioning this site best explains the biggest impact that "Obamamania" may have on the Canadian electorate: forcing people to think seriously about the kind of future they want.

We are serious about having a bit of fun with the election. And about getting out to vote -- be sure to do it. And if you see Obama's name on a ballot in your riding, be sure to let us know!
