Not sure how this is news. Mario has been around a lot longer.

More Canadians recognize Super Mario than Harper or Dion because more and more people who live in Canada have not been in Canada long enough to know. Super Mario is known around the world.

Mario is a global icon. I'm sure the same could be said in a lot of countries.

They did a slightly different poll in the US; the majority of people polled said they would have elected Mario over Bush in the previous election

If they saw Harper running, would that help?

or... Maybe if he grew a 'stash it would get him an elected majority next round.
