I have analysed the data for the last 3 polls this week. Two were done this week by IPSOS-REID/Globe and Mail the other is the COMPAS/National Post poll released Saturday. I chose these polls because I find that IPSOS polls are very accurate and that the COMPAS has been commissioned by the other national newspaper, the NATPOST. The total sample size is 3,200. It is using the spreadsheet developed here (All things Canadian).
|Prince Edward Island||0||4||0||0||4|
Points of Interest
COMPAS SHOWED THAT Quebecers are 1 percent less likely to vote for the BQ when reminded of the Gomery revelations, while the rest of Canada are, on average, 3 percent less likely to vote for the Liberals when reminded.
IN BC, the NDP are second place. No surprise here.
IN QUEBEC, Liberals are left with 7 seats. I guess this correlates with this article in the Montreal Gazette.
LIBERALS STILL LEAD in Atlantic Canada by a healthy margin.
UPDATE 2: I was asked what just the latest IPSOS numbers would do to the seat distribution. Here are the details:
|Prince Edward Island||0||4||0||0|
Based on this, the Liberals would get crushed. And interestingly enough, the Conservatives only come away with 1 seat in Quebec! However, something tells me that 30 seats in BC for the CONS is a bit unlikely. If you take a closer look at the distribution, Conservatives are weak everywhere east of Ontario, winning only 14 seats. The swing province is Ontario. Every seat is a two point differential between the Liberals and Conservatives, since they are the major players in that province. If the CONS can clean up Ontario and solidify their Western base, I would say that a Tory majority is in the cards without even tapping into the 100 or so seats east of Ottawa.
