Ontario Politics Commencing June 11 2018

Perfect time for Andrea to come for one publicly-funded secular school system!

Sound like anyone we know here!

Quick post-mortem for Ontario 2018

The Progressive Conservatives proved the polls right (well, mostly, see below) and got their majority. I don't have all the results per riding but I have enough to write a quick post-mortem to an election which ultimately was a good one for me and people making projections.

 

1. The polls.

 

Polls weren't bad but they also weren't great, at least not in average. The IVR polls (Forum, Ekos and Mainstreet) did really well while online polls (and live callers) missed the PC-NDP gap by quite a lot.  And one firm, Abacus, missed completely. Mainstreet had the best overall accuracy but they didn't have the Green within their Margins of error (note: MoE vary with the level of support for a party. A party at 5% does NOT have the same MoE as a party at 50%. Polls usually only report the MoE for a party at 50%). Forum had all 4 parties within the MoE... so hard to say who won. Let's call it a tie between Forum and Mainstreet. Funny enough, these are the two firms often criticized online (I have some annoying people on Twitter for instance who always want me to ignore these firms lol).

2018 ONTARIO ELECTION

This is how the Ontario Liberals were decimated on election night

The Liberals lost most of their strongholds. They lost to three other parties. And most of the time, it wasn’t even close.
