Forum posts for Canadian Election Polling

Posted by Nerhael on Sep 16, 2008
538 is worth because of the graphs/numbers I assume? The content itself seems.....bleh.

I think the length and lack of meaningful debate of issues in the US election leads to this sort of banal coverage. The graphs are good though. I've made it one of my 5s daily stops since duffy linked it. Good show sir.

I always wonder how much the polls affect the populace. I know that the results the greens were getting in my riding in the by-election polls will have a big impact on my vote in the federal election.

If you want to know what's actually going on, 538 is the place for you. They don't look at random polls and freak out, they run regressions based on polling history, date of poll, etc, to get way more accurate numbers. If you want to know who's going to win, not why someone should win, go to this site the night before the election.
