A new Poll says that Americans are more likely to believe in Bigfoot than Canadians.


People in the United States are more likely than Canadians to consider that Bigfoot is real, a new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll has found. In the online survey of representative national samples, three-in-ten Americans (29%) and one-in-five Canadians (21%) think Bigfoot is “definitely” or “probably” real.


I found this very interesting. If I had to guess before I saw this I would have thought there would have been no difference.

I was also surprised to find that men were more likely to believe in Bigfoot than women. I guess my surprise comes from my own experience where the women in my life are a little more open to things.


While American and Canadian men are more likely to believe that Bigfoot is real than their female counterparts, women in Britain are more likely to think that the Loch Ness Monster is real than British men.


If you follow the link at the top there is a pdf file that explains their methodology if that matters to you.

I personally find that rather dubious. I for one believe in Canadians, not only have I seen them I have actually met some of them. Canada is also home of the largest French population never to surrender to Germany.

I was going to say pretty much the same thing.

I think Bigfoot may exist but, I doubt Canadians do. Clearly all the Canadians you see on MSM are CIA or NATO mercenaries.

HAHAHA I am glad I am not the only smartass that was about to type something like that. As for bigfoot, I am american and canadian, my canadian part believes more than my american part :p

In seriousness, I am on the fence. I do realize that we are discovering new and elusive species everyday. It is possible, maybe we haven't found one because they are elusive and bury their dead? Entirely possible in my book.

Good for you, as they say "great minds think alike".
This is line number two, just for good measure.

Believe it or not, we Canadians are here. Always have been and always will be.

Where the hell do you think all that good beer is coming from?


Oh, and as far as bigfoot goes, it just makes it easier for us Canadians to walk in the winter.


Peace

i went on vacation to Canada once and saw a sign where we were camping that said this.

We advise that you wear noisy little bells on your clothing so as not to startle bears. We also advise you to carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity.

You should recognize the difference between Black Bear and Grizzly Bear droppings. Black bear droppings are smaller and contain lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear droppings have little bells in it and smell like pepper.

That is what I get for just cutting and pasting the article's title into the subject box.

Anyway, I am an American and I believe in Canadians. In fact, I have seen them in their natural habitat. I would post the pictures I took but they are blurry!

Dont' be fooled kids, we Canadians are here, we are just suffering from Winter..

It's a yearly thing, keeps us quiet and apathetic towards crap that goes on here. Big Foot feels the same way, I usually rent out my cottage to a family of them every year.

Nice hard working folk.

as a canadian, I would believe its because we are more well versed with the outdoors as we live pretty much placed our cities right in the middle of what would be wild.

I dont believe in bigfoot, but i've seen something in the bush. couple summers ago we went camping, and arrived at the site in the middle of the night, we set up and went to sleep, i'm laying in my tent which has an open view, i'm staring up into the trees and there was a pair of eyes just staring at me. bigfoot?

...nope... I believe in Canadians more the Bigfoots. I have seen Canadians.

What? Huh? Ohhhhhh, I get it. As an American I am more likely to believe in Bigfoot. Got it.

With Finding Bigfoot burning up Animal Planet, I can see why.

"Wait! Did you hear that?"
"No"
"There it is again!"
"I didn't hear anything."
"That's a Squatch! Rene, Come In."

Can't beat that. I watch it every time

Canadians tend to be secular. Secularists tend not to consider Bigfoot possible. That is odd given the fact that an actual Bigfoot would be confirmation of the existence of a hominid tree. That is what is so odd about the fact that secularists tend to avoid Bigfoot.

Maybe it is an issue not so much of secularism as of over-intellectualism. Having suffered that in my life, I can see how it can blind someone to possibilities.

I honestly don't believe there's anything to it. I believe it was something someone made up
