And Elizabeth May Is The One Being Excluded From The Debate?

The NDP is now sitting at 16.1 percent, the Green Party at 9.3 per cent and the Bloc Quebecois at 6.9 per cent nationally, according to the survey of voter intentions.

The horse has left the barn on this one, but still an injustice.

Somehow, I doubt the PQ and Atlantic numbers are right. I hope the PQ numbers are accurate, but when's the last time the BQ was under 30%? In Atlantic Canada, the notion of the Conservatives being that far ahead of the Libs defies a decade long trend.

It's interesting to look at the margin of error (page 9 of the report). Atlantic Canada it's 11.2%, Ontario 5.4%, Saskatchewan/Manitoba 10.8%, Quebec 6%. Who knows what's really going out there.

BQ 47 Greens 0

In pretty much any sport that's an ass kicking.

How many different ways can we split the Left vote before the Conservatives start getting majorities almost by default?

Don't want to bum you out, but they're on the verge of one right now according to the three-hundred-and-eight breakdown.

How partisan are people? I remember the attempt to organize vote swaping. Anyone trying to do the same today?
