Learn how to read election polls in 5 minutes




As a veteran political and campaign reporter, Brian Lilley of TheRebel.media has learned how to interpret election campaign polls — and how to tell the worthwhile ones from the junk.

He explains the different methods of polling and why some are more reliable than others. Is the NDP really in the lead? Who has the all important “path to victory”? Don’t take any polls at face value — you have to dig deeper, and consider regional difference, to determine how useful they are.

  1. Quebec is an economic basket case
    Without transfer payments it would sink to 2nd or 3rd world poverty levels
    Save a few ridings, mostly populated by Anglos or Allophones, the rest of the province would be a-ok voting for chairman Mao, as long as the welfare cheques keep coming.

  2. Based on the overall trend of polls shown on wikipedia, it's very plausible (perhaps better than 50-50) that Parliament ends up split again. The Conservatives current seat numbers with the most recent seats added isn't enough for a majority. They'd need to pick up 11 seats to accomplish that which isn't likely since the Liberals, NDP and Conservatives are all tied pretty much. Though who knows, the Conservatives may well be able to pull off a shocker victory much like the Tories in Britain or Netanyahu's center-right coalition in Israel a few months ago.

  3. NDP is going to lose because:
    -Harpers NEW 'Weapon of Mass Distraction', the Niqab
    -European 'refuge crisis'
    -Racists and Bigots

    All because of Dumb Assed Shit ! Are Canadians Stupid?
