Americans want Justin Trudeau to be their president.

They’d prefer Junior to Donald Trump, 40% to 33%, with 27% unsure.

So says an Ipsos poll for Global News.

Well, I took my own little household survey — including Tulip, my right-wing cat — and if the Americans want Justin, they can have him.

We’ll even throw in Kathleen Wynne as veep, and the federal NDP caucus as members of Congress.

Then stand back and watch Trump’s Twitter feed go berserk.

Global’s The Morning Show unveiled the poll Tuesday. (I was on to talk Trump).

Ipsos Public Affairs CEO Darrell Bricker told host Jeff McArthur that U.S. voters who backed Hillary Clinton are glum about Trump and thus open to our “sunny ways” PM.

They’re not just grasping at straws, either. The poll found 44% of Americans actually know who Trudeau is, compared to 17% for ol’ whatsisname, Stephen Harper.

A whopping 30% are familiar with Tory leadership frontrunner Kevin O’Leary. (Not that a millionaire reality show star could ever win high office.)

This could be a golden chance to unload some pols on our southern cousins. For example:

Sure, Al Gore invented the Internet, but he’s out of politics and off making a fortune saving whales or something, so if I were America, I’d have headhunters after Norm Kelly.

The Toronto councillor is a savvy tweeter and Internet phenomenon in his own right. He has more Twitter followers, 484,000, than Harry Reid, recently retired Senate Democratic leader.

To boot, they’re both gangly, with the same slightly seedy grandpa look.

Something more boyish? We could survive up here without Joe Cressy, 32, a dyed-in-the-wool lefty with a Cheshire Cat smile and a hand in your wallet.

Perhaps we’ll package him up with fellow Nannyville councillors Gord Perks, Janet Davis, Shelley Carroll and Pam McConnell. Trumpites will drool over that bunch, but they’ll downright slobber if we throw in former Manitoba Communist leader Paula Fletcher.

Strap them all on bicycles and send ’em south.

John Tory?

Naw. We need him. What would our community groups do without Tory to flip pancakes, wear silly hats, cut ribbons, speechify, lay cornerstones, kiss babies, smile for selfies, etc, etc, day and night at their events. For good reason we call him Supermayor.

But Don Peat, his chief spokesman and an ex Toronto Sun ace, would do us proud in D.C. Sean Spicer, meet Pistol Peat, the new gunslinger in town.

If Americans are short a gabby do-gooder in Washington, which is hard to believe, they could do worse than our Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.

On the other hand, let’s keep her. Her heart’s in the right place, just south of her mouth, and she knows how to party.

Liz Sandals, Ontario cabinet minister and one of Wynne’s chief deputy-nannies, is perfect to fill the political hole left by Hillary Clinton. We’ll ship her across the border on a GO Train full of “deplorables.”

Glad we could help, America. But it’s just a start. We’ve got politicians up the wazoo, so feel free to mosey on up and shop around.

In fact, the Ipsos/Global poll found 7% of Americans have thought seriously about moving to Canada, and 4% have actively looked into it.mstrobel@postmedia.com

So where are they, you ask?

I bet they took one gander at our politicos and said, no thanks, better the devil

I don't know how believable some of these polls are , the average American is not really familiar with Justin Trudeau or knows anything about his policies or politics .

and I think some on the american left would pretty much vote for anything that wasn't Trump or Clinton , look how well Bernie Sanders did ?

they'd like trudeau less the more they found out about him , just like Canadians are finding out the hard way
