ThreeHundredEight.com provides projections for Canadian federal and provincial elections in a non-partisan manner, and focuses primarily on the topic of political opinion polls. The site is owned and run by Éric Grenier. a writer specializing in Canadian politics and history. According to his site, Grenier has never been employed by, and does not support, any a political party. ThreeHundredEight refers to the number of seats in the Canadian House of Commons before the 2012 redistricting which resuled in the current three hundred and thirty eight seats.
Grenier's site has been inspired by the fantastic work of Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight, an American site that does electoral projections for congressional and presidential races and poll analysis. Grenier's methods are inspired by but do not mimic Silver's methods.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
